    Best places for AM and DH in Spain?

    Hi,

    I am most likely going to spain next year as an exchange student, so i was wondering where the best place would be?

    Mtb is a big part of my life, so it could be really cool if i could go to school near good trails. I mostly like flowy trails with jump and berms, but i love technical trails aswell. I will most likely bring a 160mm AM bike, so i can pedal uphill, but it would definitely be prefered if there were a lift or some local shuttles.

    So far i've considered Malaga, were there should be a lot of downhill trails, Alicante (fenasosa bike park is nearby, right?), and close to the pyrenees (la molina).

    It could be cool if it were near Barcelona aswell, but i haven't heard about any good trails there right?

    Otherwise i'm open for suggestions!

    Thanks in advance.

    All the spanish mediterranean coastal range has plenty of technical riding. Not so much flow trails, but lots of drops, rocks...

    All the coast range in the mediterranean is great including malaga, alicante & barcelona. Barcelona is cool, you can ride w/o a car in the sorrounding mountains, you can drive 40 min to get very long rides in 3000 ft mountains or go to the pyrinees for epic rides.

    I recommend you choose what works better for your studies. go to foromtb and check the regional subforums.
