90 km – 2600 mt of climbing / elevation gain

Teide is of course one of the best rides in Tenerife and a must while here. In a week long training camp we tend to do it on the second day either because it is so fascinating that many wish to do it at least two times during their trip and because it’s pretty rough and a lot of cyclists need to be fresh and not too tired while doing it. Teide has many variable routes. It takes 4 to 6 hours of cycling.

100 km – 4000 mt climbing / elevation gain

Enjoy riding and discovering the northern coast going towards the south. This time we ride through the towns of Icod and Garachico. From here we have the option of going to Masca through Buenavista del Norte or through El Tanque and Santiago del Teide. For those that are not prepared for 4000 mt total elevation and 100 km, you can come back from Santiago del Teide with our car. Otherwise it takes 6 to 8 hours to complete.

120 KM – 3260 mt of climbing / elevation gain

It’s quite a challenging ride that most cyclists take lightly. The difficulty is especially on the last 30-35 km when you have been several hours on the bike and you still have climbing to do. This takes about 7 to 8 hours depending on your fitness level. There is a lighter and more doable variation of this ride where at “El Portillo” you turn towards the Observatory and not go all the way to the Base of the Teide Volcano. This takes roughly about 5 to 6 hours.

60 km – 1720 mt climbing / elevation gain

Easy ride to warm up in the beginning of your cycling week in Tenerife or to do on a more relaxed day. The elevation is still there so it’s a great workout. It’s very ebautiful and scenic, it allows you to discover hidden gems that most tourists miss when visiting this incredible place. It takes about 2 to 3 hours based on your fitness level.

90 km – 1950 mt climbing / elevation gain

With a twist! Coming back from El Socorro & El Boqueron/Guamasa instead of the same route.

 That’s just for those who feel that just going to Punta Del Hidalgo and coming back the same way is not chalenging enough for them. The classical route takes about 4 to 5 hours. This one might take between 5 and 6 hours.

40 km – 1070 mt climbing / elevation gain

Easy but still a very nice ride from Puerto de la Cruz to El Sauzal.  A great warm up ride and a first taste of authentic Nothern Tenerife cycling. When you don’t have a lot of time this is a great ride! It takes about 2 hours to complete it.

70 km – 1550 mt climbing / elevation gain

We prefer to take the high mountain road to do this route to avoid the high traffic on this coastal stretch. It is very scenic road and a way to experience the authentic beauty of this island. It takes between 3 and 4 hours to complete this ride.
