WE LOVEBreathtaking 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 LOVEThe 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.

The route starts at Puerto del Carmen, then heads through Tias, Masdache and Teguise, which used to be the the capital. From Teguise the route rapidly descents until Tabayesco Valley, where you will roam through coastal villages, aloe vera fields and gardens filled with cacti. Once the summit has been reached, lunch will be held at Los Helechos Restaurant. The final 40km is a descent from 600m to sea level.
