I am Rafa, creator, owner and guide at RIDE GRANADA.
I was born in Barcelona, but moved to Granada in 2005, a cycling paradise with good weather all year round that makes the perfect place to grow as a cyclist, surrounded by all sort of terrains: flat, hills, coast, forests, paths and of course the wonderful Sierra Nevada with epic climbs and home of pro riders before their main season’s goals.
I have got a Physical Activity and Sport Sciences Higher Technical Degree and I worked as a coach and local cycling guide. In 2017 I started my own company, RIDE GRANADA, to create something different, a different approach to cycling training, training camps and cycling holidays in Granada, Sierra Nevada and its surroundings.
I know these roads like the palm of my hand: from the most popular routes to hidden jewels off the beaten path and it’s the knowledge of all these roads that make it possible to create specific routes and plans according the demands of my clients.
As a cyclist, I raced for years in different categories but later switched to a more recreational cycling. However, I still love training and taking part in sportives and some races, managing to finish in the top places. So no matter what your level is, RIDE GRANADA can design anything for you: from an easy tourist ride to discover the area, to structured heavy load training camps to achieve your best results.
Cycling is my passion, my way of life and I like to share this emotion with my clients, since we are both united by the same feeling: our true love for cycling and bicycle culture.
