Spinning the Blues Away – Tenerife Cycling Camps

It doesn’t have to be about turbo trainers and virtual worlds, not when Tenerife is waiting for you. The Canary Islands, with high mountains, beautiful sunshine and roads that the pro’s adore are the perfect place for a winter camp.

Spinning the Blues Away – Tenerife Cycling Camps

The Winter doesn’t have to be all about layers and layers of waterproof fabric and cold toes.

We have two great Winter camps in the Canary Islands either end the cold season in November 2020 and late February / March 2021 – the ideal time to shake off the Winter blues in clear blue skies. It’s little wonder that the professional peloton spend at least a few weeks here every winter.

Those that have experienced our cycling camps before will know how incredible they are, but we’ve made yet more improvements this year. For those considering our Gran Canaria Camp, you can choose to extend your stay with our Canary Islands double – ride our Gran Canaria Camp and follow it up with the Tenerife & La Gomera Camp with an extra ride in the middle! We’re always improving our trips, even our popular winter cycling camps. Set your Spring and Summer riding up perfectly with two great warm weather weeks.

Gran Canaria Cycling Camp

Gran Canaria has it all: Big mountains, endless sunshine, and 4-star resorts to rest and recharge at the end of each day.

Tenerife & La Gomera Cycling Camp: November 21 — 28

Ride in the tire tracks of Chris Froome and so many other Tour de France contenders on the famous slopes of Mount Teide! Tenerife is famous for this impressive volcano, the testing ground for pros and mortals alike, but our camp offers far more than just this incredible climb. Our warm up climb on day one takes in the coast and a steady 6% climb on Guia de Isora. A great way to soak up the rays and the stunning views before tackling Tiede on day 2. We’ll take on the beast twice during the week, once from Los Gigantes and once from Granadilla de Abona. Taking in the glorious lava fields in the shadow of the volcano and one of the longest descents you can find.

In between and afterwards we’ll take the switchbacks on the descent from El Tanque, ride along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean to Buenavista del Norte and climb through El Chirche, one of the steepest segments in Tenerife. Our ride leader is just 40 seconds behind KOM Chris Froome, so maybe hang onto his wheel for an all time PR!

With perfect temperatures guaranteed you’ll return home with a killer cycling tan to match your superior fitness gained on this incredible island.

Tenerife & La Gomera Cycling Camp

Tenerife has become the preferred training destination of pro riders and this is your opportunity to discover just what is so special about this island.
