What we love About Tenerife Intermediate Cycling Week

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.
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.
