Home to the Valley of the Tears, Gran Canaria is a great option for some warm weather cycling or training. Like Tenerife, there’s plenty of climbing and with slick and well maintained roads, you can truly test yourself on the bike. We recommend basing yourself in the south. Maspalomas is home to a huge number of hotels but for a quieter more luxurious stay, head a few km east to Meloneras.
The Canary Islands and Gran Canaria in particular, enjoy year round sunshine with plenty of breeze. It is much less windy though than it's neighbour Lanzarote and therefore a better bet for cycling in our opinion. Head out in the UK's autumnal, winter or spring months for some great cycling weather.
