TRIP HIGHLIGHT WHAT WE LOVE

The Tour of Gran Canaria is 6 day guided & supported cycling holiday taking in all of the island. The ride starts in the south from Maspalmoas. From there, we head into the cool forests in the centre of the island, then down to the windy north west coast, before heading back to the south. 


All the hotels used are bike friendly and of great quality fro such an epic cycling holiday. Your ride will be fully supported by knowledgeable ride guides and backed by a support car equipped with water,  nutritional products, fruit as well as plenty of bike supplies in case of mechanicals.

AREA
INFORMATION

​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.

Weather
INFORMATION

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.
