We can tailor make this trip for you
How it Works

You can arrive on any day into Gran Canaria and we will take you to our hotel. Simply pick any number of daily guided rides that you would like to ride on your holiday. You are completely free to pick a couple of rides to add to some self guided days, or ride every guided ride we have in our programme. The choice is yours.

Day 1Monday - Soria

Your first ride of Gran Canaria will involve 26km of flat riding to Arguineguin and then onto Cercado de Espinos, allowing you to save your energy for the 5km climb to Soria. Once there, you will take a break at a local restaurant, where you can eat freshly baked cinnamon bread. You may see a waterfall from the restaurant if the mountains have recently had rain. The journey back is the same route.

Day 2Tuesday - Palmitos Ayagaures

The first part of the ride is relatively flat which is a perfect warm-up. From here, it’s all uphill on snaking hairpins to the lookout at he Mirador de Ayagaures. From there, you will descend towards Monte León and towards Los Palmitos Park. Your second big climb begins here before heading to the Centro de Salud and then back to Maspalomas.

Today is a tough ride. You will climb gently until the climb becomes tougher in the morning. You will ascend to 2000m before some incredible quick afternoon descents.

Cappuccino Group 67km/1,330m
Hobby Group 96km/2,600m

Day 4Friday - Santa Lucia to Fataga

A route which makes Gran Canaria great for cyclists! Composed of long and short climbs, the return is wholly declines, inter-spaced and winding, with a range of lengths allowing you to practice techniques and speed. The east coast tailwinds will play in your favour returning you to Playa del Ingles.

Cappuccino Group 63km/800m
Hobby Group 69km/1,320m
Sport Group 82km/1,520m

Day 5Saturday -Tauropass

Today you will cycle along the coast to Puerto de Mogan where the climb will begin. You will take a break in Mogan (249m) then go onto climb Tauropass (915m), with a break in Soria. We recommend trying the papaya juice and freshly baked cinnamon bread! The way back to Playa del Ingles is flat.

What to ExpectFrom famous climbs to unforgettable coastal rides

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.
