If you only do one thing in Salou, you need to make it this. We did the half day one & it was amazing. You get picked up at your hotel then taken to a practice area where you get allocated a bike & helmet. Then you're taken off up into the hills to get started. They guys who run this are just fantastic - very funny & so enthusiatic about what they do and their local knowledge is second to none. I don't know how they do it!
We were a bit aprehensive as we're not experienced cyclists & weren't sure what to expect but we didn't need to worry. They guys' number one priority is safety. Such an amazing day out, I can't praise it highly enough.

What a day to remember with the Salou Downhill Bikes crew. My team comprised of one adult and my two boys aged 9 and 10, we thoroughly enjoyed the half day tour. I was skeptical as I thought it was risky for children, but I was reassured after going through the pre talk. The pre talk covers all safety features, and possible problems you may come across when cycling. Their knowledge of the area and history is really good. The whole experience is amazing and its suitable for children as well. The view around the mountains, church and vineyards, train line, terrain is just breath taking.

My husband saw this on list of things to do in Salou. Have to say I was not as eager as him as had not cycled for 35 years and only did a bit then. We were picked up one wet Friday morning and had a safety session, allocated a bike and helmet and had a ride around so that the guys could see our levels of cycling. we went up the mountain but the rain was so bad they decided we could not go out that morning. They thought we could go out in the afternoon but the weather had other ideas. They rearranged for Saturday morning and the weather was glorious. I am so glad I did this, it was fantastic. I was at the back, shepherded by my patient husband and I glided down that mountain like a pro - well a bit wobbly if I am honest - but it was brilliant. They said anyone can do it and they were right. The mantra was "squeeze and release" and that is all you have to do. There is a bit of uphill cycling but it really is only a bit.. Rob and Dave were fab. Funny, encouraging and knowledgeable too. Thanks for the history lesson Rob. There is an option to buy a memory stick with some photos of the scenery and photos of everyone on the ride. Ours was worth it as I did not see much more than the tarmac but still enjoyed it. Thanks for a great day guys and thanks for my medal too

Fun and friendly team, great to see a group of guy's passionate about what they do and wanting to give a great experience to all who wish to try something a little different than lounging on a sun bed. Professional outfit full of facts, culture and even some local produce from the Catalonia region. From the very start Rob and his team were hysterical with their unique brand and sense of humour. It was a pleasure and a must do. Rob you are a legend. Many thanks!
Loved it! Well organised, spectacular scenery and hosts were absolutely tremendous.

Just returned from a morning with the downhill bike tour. Staff couldn't have been friendlier and better at putting us at ease with our 15-month-old on a bike (it was her first time and she LOVED it!). Got to see beautiful scenery and this was a great way to escape the usual 'resort humdrum' for a while. Would highly recommend to anyone of any age or family type visiting Salou

A super trip into the hills on bike but with hardly any effort. Really enjoyed our downhill gliding with lovely scenery and next to no cars. A support vehicle in front and behind our small convoy and good instructions before each section made us feel at ease even without much recent bike time. Our two instructors/guides/comedy duo made our time with them both instructive and good fun. Highly recommended. We may well take a second trip later this week, yes we enjoyed it that much!

We went on the half day trip. Picked by promptly by a very funny guide. Didn't stop laughing from the minuet we got on the mini bus. After a quick three lap safety ride to get used to the bikes we were off to the mountains. The safety talk was excellent. The general knowledge about the local area was brilliant, very informative. We all had a brilliant morning and would really recommend this trip to anyone, even if you've not been on a bike in a while. They set the pace to what is best for you. Also the UBS wrist band with all the photos of the day is definitely worth buying as the last thing on your mind is taking photos yourself. All in all thoroughly recommend day out. Thanks guys,

A really fab day out with top customer service. Phil, our pick up driver actually drove up from pick up point to hotel to save us the walk! He was then packed full of interesting facts about Catalonia.
When we arrived at the top of the mountain we were greeted and issued with bikes. The team led by Rob made sure the bikes were right for each person and safety briefings were high on the agenda and taken very seriously. I would advise you to take some of them fake moustaches with you as Rob the team leader has a real corker of a tash and a sense of humour to match!
The 'glide' down the mountain was great. We had a lead car to follow, set off in small family / team groups with a support vehicle at the back containing spare bikes etc.
At the end of the ride we did the wine tour, short but facinating, recomend it. Then it was a drink in the small village square cafe which was very good value, before being dropped back at the hotel.
Fab day, well organised, safety was paramount and we will defo do it again should we go back to Salou

Me and my girlfriend just got back from doing this whilst on holiday. We were able to see some beautiful areas that we wouldn't have seen otherwise! Lovely riding downhill with minimal effort and the breeze to cool you down. The staff are great, can't remember his name but the Arsenal supporter was brilliant. Would recommend to anyone.
