Seriously? Did your Google search "mountain biking trips in Spain" not return sources such as this?:

I have toured in Andalucia and actually rode past Castil, where the above-place is located. Pretty area.

Biketoursdirect work with a lot of companies in Europe. I took a trip with them to Czech Republic a couple of years back, and a friend has done three different trips. I know they do road bike trips, but they may do mountain biking as well.

One thing to check is the nationality of the group you will end up with. My buddy ended up as the only English speaker in a group of Swiss and German riders, and she said she felt a little isolated at times. The tour leader spoke English, but the lingua franca was German, of course.

My trip was self-guided, so no language problems to worry about. It was lovely.

If you are looking for a little challenge I would suggest looking up st. james way. It is sort of a religious pilgrimage but you can make it your own personal challenge and even better with a group. it is 800km long and has massive elevation changes. I walked it in a month and 10 days all the way from the border of france in the pirenees to the west coast where there is a town called the "end of the world". It goes through beautiful cities and is very suitable for mountain bikers. There are shelters in which you can stay every every 10km that charge 3 to 10 euros and are bike friendly. You will get to see cities like Burgos, Leon, Santiago de Compostella, Pamplona and many other beautiful towns. At the end of the trail if you choose you can get a certificate that indicates you have completed the trail by showing them your "stamped passport" which you get to stamp in every shelter you stay at. It is definitely the single best experience ive ever had.
