Contact other cyclists in Tenerife for group rides

Hello Leslie,

First of all, I would like to tell you that you have a fantastic website !
I suppose you know that anyway as a lot or people will be congratulating

We plan to go to Tenerife for a cycling holiday (2 pax) from 2nd to 10th
Jan 2010. As there are no organized rides, is there a way to get in
contact with other cyclists in Tenerife in order to plan group rides ?

I signed in the forum on your website, but need to wait an e-mail from the
administrator before I can log in.

Thank you for your help if you have the time and any suggestion.

We do not need bike hire as we travel with our own bikes.

Kind regards,

Hello Flora & thanks for signing up.

Also a big thanks for your kind praise regarding the website.

As you can see, the forum is not very active, but don’t give up hope for an answer… We generally get over 1000 visitors daily on the site! The whole idea of setting up the forum was for cyclo-tourists to hook up with eachother. I suspect with time, more people will join up and use it for its original purpose… so I definitely encourage you to make a few more posts. At the very least I myself will respond within a few days (I tend to let other members reply first now).

There are almost 100 members, most of them are lurkers and so not all of them active. But it takes time to develop the level of trust & input needed for a forum to work.

You might try contacting some of the clubs in this list.

Most of them speak Spanish though…
