The island of eternal Spring is a Mecca for cycling enthusiasts looking to soak up some winter sunshine. The volcanic island offers some spectacular views across the glistening Atlantic, especially from Mount Teide.
Winters are extremely pleasant and even the hot summer months aren’t quite as hot as mainland Spain. Mount Teide influences Tenerife’s climate with the north being cooler and wetter than the south, but in reality, you’re likely to be basking in sunshine on a cycling holiday to Tenerife.
Your stay will be at the Jardin Tropical hotel in Costa Adeje. Set within a hectare of gardens and lush surroundings, this idyllic 4-star retreat was designed using local materials, including Canary Island Pine and natural stone. Boasting an outdoor pool looking directly over the Mediterranean, sensuous spa, modern gym and games room, this is the perfect base to explore Tenerife. We can also upgrade your room or offer single occupancy, subject to availability. Just ask our cycling experience team when you make your enquiry.
The holiday is a self guided holiday allowing you to explore Tenerife at your own pace. We know the area very well and have put together some recommended routes in GPX format which allows you to download these to most GPS enabled devices, and with certain software, to your smartphone. These will be sent to you once you have booked your holiday with Love Velo and each file will be titled with a short description of the ride and the distance. If you would like to see the profile of each route, we recommend that you download the files before your holiday and open them with a GPS viewer. If you would like guiding instead, please just ask our cycle experience team.
If you choose not to have a guide, you will want to know that your bike is in great condition and that you won’t have any mechanical problems during your ride. Our bikes are extremely well serviced and maintained but in the very unlikely event there is a mechanical issue with the bike (not including basic maintenance such as slipped chains or punctures), we will provide you with an emergency number for someone to come out and repair or replace your bike.
The bike you will rent to explore Tenerife is an aluminium framed road bike. The bike is equipped with a Shimano 105 11 speed group set and 11-32 cassette and compact crankset and we can fit Look or Shimano pedals to the bike. If you would like, you can upgrade your bicycle to a Focus Cayo road bike which offers a great balance between race handling and smooth comfort. It comes equipped with disc brakes for extra performance and on road experience. Additionally, we can provide you with a BMC VIP Timemachine TMR02, equipped with MAVIC Cosmic profile wheels as standard. A cycling computer will also be fitted to the handlebars.
We consider travel insurance to be essential. Accordingly, it is a condition of making a booking through us that you have suitable insurance cover for the booking you have made and any activities which you expect to take part in. This insurance as a minimum should cover cancellation, baggage loss, accidents and health issues while you are away. We also recommend that you take your policy details with you when you travel. Please ask our cycling experience team if you would like us to arrange travel insurance for you.
This is a self guided holiday but we can arrange guiding for you if you prefer. We can offer group riding with like minded people on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, or if you prefer, we can organise private guiding. Please just ask our cycling experience team what we can provide.
