Life from an outsider's perspective…

Are you guiding cyclists yourself or do you employ people?

Hi Leslie!

Great video! I know it is great cycling in Tenerife. I have never been there, but in december 2005 I cycled at Gran Canaria during one week and I loved the scenery and weather.

It might be a coincidence but I was just thinking about what to do next Winter. Last winter I was four months and the South of Spain cycling and studying the Spanish language,… entonces ahora hablo Espanol y en el proximo invierno quiero practicarlo en una zona donde hablan Espanol… I was already thinking about going some weeks to Tenerife. Then I can provide you some more detailed profiles of climbs of Tenerife.

Are you guiding cyclists yourself or do you hire people? In the latter case you could ask me because I have some experience of guiding cyclists.



I don’t do many guided road rides now, because everything is pretty well signposted and most people just want to hire the bikes and explore the island on their own. That way they can also go at their own pace, etc.

In the future I will offer guided rides again, when I have more clients and people wish to explore the lesser-known regions of Tenerife. Times are pretty tough at the moment due to the global financial crisis and everything, so I am not looking for employees. I would certainly appreciate more altitude profiles and ride descriptions of the South of Tenerife though.

I certainly hope you can come to Tenerife to train with your bike and to practise speaking (and listening to) Spanish this Winter!

Yo también hablo español… tuve que aprender porque vivo con una familia canaria… Has visto mi foro de ciclismo en Tenerife? Si quieres aprender un poco más, podrías registrarte…

If you would like to hire a bike while you are here, please let me know, OK?
Thanks, Leslie.
