Tenerife Advanced Cycling Week

We can tailor make this trip for you

What we love About Tenerife Advanced Cycling Week

We love...Mount Teide
The climbing in Tenerife makes it the perfect destination for seasoned riders looking to train. Mount Teide is just one of the impressive mountains you will face on your trip with a peak altitude of 2100m.
We love...Great Weather All Year Round
The Canary Island provides riders with incredible weather for the majority of the year. There is a good breeze and the wind is less intense than its neighbour Lanzarote, making it an ideal place to ride. Winters are pleasant and the summers are cooler than mainland Spain.
We love...Breathtaking Coastal Riding
With golden beaches and the rolling mountainous landscape ahead of you, you will be treated to stunning views over the Atlantic as you ride along Tenerife's smooth, tarmacked roads. It truly is one of the best places to cycle.

Day 3Carretera Vieja (Wednesday)
Total distance72kmTotal climb1220m

This ride along the coast is ideal as an introductory test or recuperation ride. You will take a 40 minute transfer to Guimar valley where the ride will begin. The TF-28 was the first road connecting Santa Cruz de Tenerife to the southern part of the island but is now a popular training route for professionals due to its hills.

Day 4Masca Ridge (Thursday)

Today is a tough ride. The climb out of the Masca Valley is one of the most challenging on the island due to the severity of its gradient and its length (4 km, average 11%, some parts are between 15% and 20%). Today is ridden at approximately 22-27km/h.

Day 5Teide South (Friday)
Total distance53kmTotal climb1250m

The ride is a shortened version of the climb towards Mount Teide, the perfect taste and ideal for seeing whether you can hack the longer version!
