Life from an outsider's perspective…

Will the weather be good enough for the rides in October – December?

Good evening,

I’m a keen mountain biker and road cyclist and wish to get some rides in while visiting Tenerife. Was planning on being there in Oct and Dec, will the weather be good enough for the rides you mention on your website?

Also if are the mountain bike trails easy to follow if I was to cycle alone?

Many thanks,

James Young


Yes, the weather will be cooler obviously but still rideable. In fact the December-April period is our busiest time – most of our clients who rent bikes come down from Northern Europe to cycle here then & escape their own Winter.

It will be colder up the mountain, so you will likely need arm & leg warmers. It’s a good idea to bring a thin windshell jacket + gloves for the December visit too! Check out our Weather & info page for more info about the climate…

The mountain trails are not all that easy to follow as they aren’t really marked. But all you really have to do is point your bike downhill in the direction of the sea, and you can’t go too far wrong.

The best map is the Kompass 233, available here.

On the road it is completely different – all roads are clearly signposted with a TF designation.
Hope this helps.
