Lanzarote offers almost pristine tarmac. The roads are in great condition with very little traffic and the island is much flatter than its neighbours, Tenerife and Gran Canaria. There are still climbs but you can also enjoy long and spectacular undulating roads.
As Lanzarote doesn't have any tall mountains, there are very few clouds that hover over the island. It has the most consistent temperature of all of the Canary islands making it perfect for winter sun. You've probably heard about the wind and Lanzarote can be extremely windy, certainly in the middle of summer. It is however less windy in the winter meaning any wind that does blow brings a welcome cool breeze to your cycling
