Tenerife Cycling Amateur Tour
(See below for dates)
January to June 2014
Enjoy a week of cycling in Tenerife riding many of the roads used by top cycling professionals, such as Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Team Sky, to perfect their cycling form in time for major cycling races.
Our Amateur cycling tour in Tenerife, in conjunction with the Delgado brothers of Tenerife Bike Training, consists of some great cycling rides, 2-4 hours cycling per day and support on the road.
It is an easier cycling tour than our other Tenerife Lunar Tour and Tenerife Volcano Tour options, but still enjoyable.
Tenerife cycling routes for the Amateur cycling tour include:
Following the sea - 35km starting and finishing in Garachico and climbing over 500m, passing through the banana plantations and over the coastal cliffs. This is a good introduction to cycling in Tenerife as it will be about 2 hours long.
South - a lumpy route today. We will ride 60km in about 3 hours and climb about 1100m, in the south of the island of Tenerife.
Triangle - approximately 60km, starting from our hotel in Los Cristianos. This ride will takes us 1350m up to Vilaflor, the highest town in Spain. It's steep in places, but well worth the effort as the terrain and views change the higher up the mountain you cycle. The route back down the mountain is fast and you will speed through the corners quickly with exhilirating descents - really worth it!
La Laguna - Nearly 50km covered today but in 3 to 4 hours, you will climb over 1800m! You will finish at the top of Teide!
Vilaflor - Today, we will drive to Vilaflor and start our ride here. The sections we ride today are the sames as those favoured by Tour de France winners in the past, so ride from Vilaflor to the top of Teide. During 3 to 4 hours, we will ride about 40km, and ascend more than 1250m, finishing at the World famous Teide Observatory. On a very clear day, you can see 4 other Canarian islands from the routes we choose today - Gran Canaria, El Hierro, La Gomera and even La Palma!
Santa Cruz - Starting in Santa Cruz, we will ride 50km and cover 1375m, exploring some of the more undiscovered areas of Tenerife.
