A motorbike tour on the outskirts of Benidorm

Harley Sportster XL 883R
If you are fed up of lounging by the pool all day and fancy a bit of an adrenalin rush then I may have the answer. However this little isn't for little girls and boys ... its for the real grown up's (you have to be 30 years or over) and have a valid type "A" drivers license for motorbikes of 650cc/50hp.... welcome to the world of motorbiking!
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to experience the vibrations of a Harley Davidson between your legs then this is your chance - yes, here on the outskirts of Benidorm you can fulfill that dream.

I came across it quite by accident - I was actually doing my shopping in Mercadona opposite and was intrigued by the Harley Davidson sign outside so went in to find out what they offered. I am not a biker at all - I stick to 4 wheels but can see what attracts people to biking. The thrill of speed and freedom....

Federico, the owner and tour guide speaks perfect English and is an experienced biker with expert knowledge of the surrounding area.
They have 3 BMW 650's, 2 Harley Davidson 883R's and 1 Ducat - for the very experienced biker Fredrico told me - that is obviously a real mean machine! The bikes are all fairly new with low mileage and are always thoroughly inspected before each tour goes out - they have a their own on-site garage and workshop.

Shop where you can hire accesories
They offer 2 different guided tours - a half day tour lasting 2.5 hrs and covering ap. 100km and a full day tour lasting over 5 hours (inc lunch) and covering between 150-170km. Both of them will take you through the spectacular mountainous roads behind Benidorm which have over 1000 curves and superb tarmac... that's quite important  for bikers by all accounts. All the bikes can take a passenger - but they have to be over 12 years of age. One very important point Fredrico made was that every driver has to take an alcohol test which MUST show 0.0% otherwise you will not be allowed out - so if you have been out on the lash the night before don't even bother... NO allowances are made (and rightly so).

They offer a free collection and drop off service to and from your hotel in the package and helmets are also included in the tour price. Jackets, trousers, boots and gloves can all be hired from the on-site shop at an additional charge if desired - as you probably wouldn't have thought to pack them for your beach holiday.. strange that!
Happy tour group up in Guadalest
It certainly looks like it would be an unforgettable day and experience for those that are into biking .... prices start at 79€ for drivers and 25€ for passengers. Contact us for further details
