Biking Tenerife / Canaries advice


Very informative website you have.

Planning a road cycling trip in France, Spain and Canaries for Aug/Sept 2011.
We are 3 couples who are serious riders, who have ridden most all the Cols of note in France, the last couple of years.

For the best cycling experience for one week in the Canaries, would you have any recommendations on where (city/island) to stay for the best cycling?

Appreciate any advice you might have for us.

Best Regards,


It’s really hard for me to say what are the best locations to stay. I think you would be very limited by spending only 1 week in the whole Canary Islands. It might be best to choose two islands at most.

Here is my list of “top 10 climbs in Tenerife”. Depending on what you are seeking out, you can choose your location based on that…

Personally, as far as Tenerife is concerned, I wouldn’t miss the main climbs to Mt Teide (all but the western approach), Masca & Anaga. La Gomera is a great little island I’ve always been meaning to explore by bike. I’m sure La Palma and Gran Canaria also have some rides which are not to be missed…
