Itinerary Detail

Day 1

Distance

Elevation


Welcome to Gran Canaria!

Your Cycling Camp starts at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Airport where our staff will meet you before the short transfer to the Hotel Cordial in Agaete.

After lunch, orientation meeting and bike build-up, you’ll head out for your first ride in Gran Canaria, up the magnificent climb to El Sao.

Day 2

Distance

Elevation


The Coast & La Ruta de las Presas

A beautiful ride today with a mix of coastal cliff scenery and high mountains on the Ruta de las Presas.

From Agaete you’ll head south-west for 30km (19 miles) through the Tamadaba Natural Park along a spectacular road that clings to the cliffs, high above the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll want to stop at every corner for another photo – the views are that stunning! La Aldea signals the end of the coastal road and the beginning of the long climb to the central part of the island. The top lies 26km (16 miles) ahead at an altitude of 1,100m (3,600ft) – through some of the most incredible scenery on the island. From the top enjoy 20km (12 miles) of rolling terrain through forests and green fields before the long descent back to the hotel.

Day 3

Distance

Elevation


The Infamous Valley of the Tears

This is one of the most remarkable and challenging days you will ever spend on a bike. The Valley of the Tears route is one of the hardest rides on the island. This is epic Thomson terrain!

From the hotel in Agaete you’ll head inland to Fagajesto where you’ll join yesterday’s ride (in the opposite direction). At the Paralillo Reservoir a sharp left turn signals the start of the Valley of the Tears climb with initial ramps of over 15%. 10km (6 miles) of hurt lie ahead – but the views are amazing!

Just over the top of the climb you’ll be rewarded with a well deserved lunch stop in the cycling cafe in Ayacata – then a 35km (22 miles) descent to your next hotel in Puerto de Mogan.
