Easter in Ibiza: Sport

The world's most famous island has teamed up with the world's most famous mountain biker

The world's most famous island has teamed up with the world's most famous mountain biker to bring you The Ninth Mountain Bike Tour of Ibiza with Gary Fisher.

Around 1000 bikers are expected to push pedals with Gary Fisher himself on 10th, 11th and 12th April when San Antonio becomes biker central for the duration.

Gary Fisher more or less invented the sport of mountain biking in the 60's when he was banned from 'ordinary' bike racing because his hair was too long! He also started the development and adaptation of the bikes themselves so that they were suitable for the new sport and the rough terrain it needed.

There's a different route on each day of the Ibiza tour:
Route 1. Ibiza World Heritage Route – 30 Km from Ibiza to San Antonio
Route 2. Ibiza Coast to Coast Marathon – 80 Km from San Antonio to Can Trull
Route 3. Coves of San Antonio and San Jose - 35 Km round trip.

Also included are a couple of guided tours, a night bike, a big fiesta on the Saturday and a BBQ on the Sunday.

Sounds like a great weekend and a fabulous way to discover the 'real' Ibiza. If you're unable to get here for Easter, check out our Mountain Bike Tours page which has routes for you to follow at your own pace.
