Galicia is known as a rainy region of Spain however Pontevedra has its own microclimate . The best time to come and ride with us is anytime however from April – October generally it is dry and
sunny with temperatures ranging from 20 – 30c degrees. From Oct – March we can get more rain but the temperature never drops below 10c. All of our trails drain really well and can be ridden all year round. We also recommend bringing a rain jacket just in case as being so close to the sea the weather can change quite quickly.
