Lanzarote Intermediate Cycling Week

We can tailor make this trip for you

What we love About Lanzarote Intermediate Cycling Week

We love...Breathtaking Coastal Riding
As you cycle on tarmacked roads, parallel to the golden Lanzarote beaches, you will be treated to exceptional views over the Atlantic Ocean. The rugged coastline offers stunning riding with the El Golfo Coast providing one of many outstanding rides on the island.
We love...The Climbing
Lanzarote is flatter than its neighbours, Gran Canaria and Tenerife, meaning it is marginally easier ride however, the landscape is still fitting for those looking to challenge themselves with some tough ascents. The Montanas de Fuego (The Fire Mountains) are a particular highlight of the trip, as is the popular 10km climb in the Tabeyesco Valley.
We love...Great weather all year round
In comparison to the other Canary Islands, Lanzarote has more consistent sun all year round. This makes for perfect rides throughout each season, including winter when the notorious Lanzarote winds have calmed down.
