I’m planning a road biking trip to Tenerife with a couple of friends. In your opinion, what would be a best town to stay in regarding the available cycling routes?
* Well Los Gigantes is a nice, small resort but the road & MTB rides are pretty limited around there. The road condition up to Mt Teide from the Western side is not the best – it really needs resurfacing. The road to Tamaimo and Santiago del Teide is generally steeper than a lot of the other road climbs in Tenerife.
* From Los Cristianos you have the Southern approach to Las CaÃ±adas. For example you can also you can ride from Granadilla to Arafo, a flatter but still ‘undulating’ route. Having said that, you either love or hate the Las Americas resort.
* From Santa Cruz you are very close to Anaga & La Esperanza (a good starting point for the climb to Teide from the Eastern side)
* And last but not least, there are several climbs close to Puerto de la Cruz / La Orotava valley region. For me this is the best region!
