Tenerife Cycling Lunar Tour
(See below for dates)
January to May 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 Lunar cycling tour in Tenerife, in conjunction with the Delgado brothers of Tenerife Bike Training, consists of all rides starting and finishing at our base hotel, 2 and 6 hours cycling per day and support on the road.
You will also spend a couple of nights at the World Famous El Parador Las Canada's Hotel at 2,300 metres above sea level!
February 22 - March 1
We also offer two other tours in Tenerife: the tougher Tenerife Volcano Cycling Tour and the easier Tenerife Amateur Cycling Tour.
Tenerife cycling routes for the Lunar 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.
Vertigo - 55km starting from Garachico and heading to the famous town of Masca. It will take 3-4 hours and you will climb over 1,900m. We will take a short break in Masca to recover and enjoy the local views, before we start cycling back.
From sea to sky - 5 hours in the saddle from Garachico to the top of Teide. Total elevation gain is around 2,700 metres and the ride is around 70km. This is an amazing experience if it is the first time you have seen the wonderful volcanic landscape of the top half of the island of Tenerife, it is an almost extra terrestrial environment. We will stay for the next 2 nights at the Parador Hotel and the chances are you will never have seen a night time sky like you will witness tonight!
Vilaflor - Today it's time to undertake one of the favourite cycling pro training rides. Starting from the Parador, we actually ride down the mountain along a fast and windy descent, before turning around at the small town of Vilaflor, which incidentally is the highest town in Spain, and start ascending back to the top. You will not only fight the gradient of the mountain, but also the effects of altitude as you gain height. Sometimes you will pass through the cloud line and the temperature will drop. We expect to cover about 91km and about 1,900m of climbing.
Volcanos - Another tough day. 90km and 1,400m of climbing. Starting from the Parador, it's then past some of the volcanoes towards La Caldera, before a 20km climb back up to 2,300m at El Portillo and a final descent down to our next hotel, the Laguna Nivaria Hotel.
Laurisilva - This is a lumpy day of cycling over 62km and climbing 2,000m. We head into the northeastern part of the island of Tenerife and into one of the most remote Taganana.
