Arrive at the Redtread Country House for approximately 9am, we’ll have a cup of English tea and go through our safety chat with you. We will explain our method of hand signal procedure and talk you through the function of the sweeper system which we use so you fully understand how we work. Next, we will get you into your protective riding gear and talk you through some basic riding technique. We will cover basic off-road body position, braking, use of gears and answer any questions you may have too..

We will depart at approximately 10am.

The route we take will depend on the ability of the group. It will also depend on what the group want to get out of their day too. What is most important to us is that you enjoy your experience to the full.

We can arrange airport transfers or you can hire a car to get you to the Redtread Country House from Malaga Airport. Whichever way you choose, it takes approximately 50 minutes to get to us here in Nerja.

Upon arrival, we will show you around the property and its facilities, you may want to detour into our bar for complimentary sandwiches and Cava, we will then show you to your room and leave you to settle in. Depending on your arrival time we will get you kitted out in your riding gear to help speed the morning up.

The whole evening is yours to enjoy.

The Short Week – Riding day 1

In the morning, breakfast is served at 8.30am. We will go through the safety briefing, get you fully kitted out in your protective riding gear (if not done the day before) and also talk you through the “sweeper system” used here at Redtread. This will help you to fully understand the benefits of using this technique so you will feel more comfortable riding out with us. We will also demonstrate the basic operation of your motorcycle and show you how to pick the bike up from the floor in case of a spill!

At approximately 10am we will head off for the day and, depending on your level of off-road experience, spend the first ½ of the day providing you with more guidance on technique, general riding tips to help you enjoy your riding experience with Redtread.

If you are already an experienced off-roader, less time will be spent on tuition and more on the actual riding of the trails.

So, we will ride out for approximately 4 hours, give you as much or as little tuition as you want and basically make sure you are having a good time.

At approximately 2pm we will stop for lunch, this is included in the cost of your riding. We will eat in a typically Spanish Restaurant and enjoy a laid back lunch of approximately 1hr whilst chatting about the mornings riding.

After lunch, we get back into our gear and head off again back onto the trails for a few more hours trail riding, normally we land back at base for around 5pm so you have time to relax and top up with a complimentary piece of homemade cake, enjoy a beer, take a swim and chill out.

During the day we will stop at intervals so you can take drinks onboard and we take photos throughout the day, we will also check you’re ok!

Depending on the route we take, expect to cover around 100km.

The Short Week – Riding day 2

For your second day, breakfast will be served at 8.30am and we will be away from Redtread straight onto the trails for 10am.

Depending on confidence levels and abilities, today’s route will take us onto open trails, forestry tracks, river crossings and rocky sections but will always be in keeping with the group. You will be challenged, not defeated! Guidance is always on hand for you throughout the days riding.

At approximately 2pm we will stop for lunch, this is included in the cost of your riding. We will eat in another typically Spanish Restaurant and enjoy a laid back lunch of approximately 1hr.

After lunch, we get back into our gear again and head off onto the trails for a few more hours riding bikes, normally we land back at base for around 5.30pm so you have time to relax and top up with a complimentary piece of homemade cake, enjoy another beer, take a swim, and chill out.

During the day we will stop at intervals so you can take drinks onboard and we take photos throughout the day, we will also check you’re ok!

Depending on the route we take, expect to cover around 120 – 140km.

The Short Week – Riding day 3

Breakfast is at 8.30am, we will leave Redtread at 10am again. Today’s route will be different again, we will take fewer stops and spend more time riding as we have more distance to cover. This route will be more challenging again, as your confidence will have increased by now, just to keep you focused!

At approximately 2pm we will stop for lunch, this is included in the cost of your riding. We will eat in another typically Spanish Restaurant and enjoy a laid back lunch of approximately 1hr.

It is realistic to expect to ride the high mountain trails today which are truly breathtaking. We will ride up to a height of 6050ft; consider that Ben Nevis is 4700ft!
