bike hire : daily trails : shop : guided tours
MTB Bulgaria in Bansko have a range of mtb machines, hardtail, full-suspension and a small range of kids bikes. They offer bike hire as well as helmets, pumps, spare tubes and tool kits.
The price range is from 15lv - 35lv per day depending on which machine is hired. A discount for long term rentals of three days or more is offered. Bikes can be delivered to the apartment, if this more convenient however it may be better for guests to go to the shop to be measured to ensure the correct size of bike and equipment is hired.
Steve and Wendy from MTB Bulgaria are Mias trained mtb guides, they offer daily trails or a package of three or more days. Trails will depend on the level of experience of the riders, there are trails for the beginner right up to full on experienced riders trails. The rides take place in the Pirin, Rila and Rhodope mountains all within the valley area.
Small groups of up to six people with one guide: 120 lv per group per day (bike hire extra)
Larger groups of more than six people with two guides: 150 lv per group per day (bike hire extra)
They also offer trips to the bike parks in Borovets and Pamporovo where the trails are accessed by uplift (chair lifts). This includes transport to and from the resort, priced around 100lv per person which includes transport, guide and a lift pass. Bike hire would be extra and the parks offer higher specification bikes for the more rougher terrain although MTB Bulgaria do have full sus bikes if the client prefers a better standard of machine. This trip is usually based on a minimum four people.
They also offer enduro days in Bansko, whereby clients are taken onto the race trails which are used as part of The Bulgarian Enduro Series. There is a choice of either cycling up to the trails or using the gondola.
During the summer months the mtb shop is open from 9.00am (earlier by request) and is situated near to the Mall in Bansko just over from the gondola car park. Package holidays are available, usually three or more days rental and guiding, each holiday can be tailored made to suit individual requirements.
Each Sunday MTB Bulgaria and some local people give up their day to take tourists onto some of the trails, known as the Sunday Ride. It is a social fun ride and the trails will be decided on the day when the abilities of people attending are known. Sometimes at busy times they take out three different rides - easy, medium and experienced. The ride itself is free, participants just need have either a hired bike or their own.
