Cycle through the “island of the eternal spring” with the impressive Mount Teide (3718m/12198ft) as the unmistakable centerpiece of the island. Tenerife also boasts the longest ascent in the whole of Europe – at 23 miles of riding, you’ll ascend over 6890ft!
With over 25 ways to climb Mount Teide, there is always a new way to experience the mountain. Unlike the UK, the climbs are generally fairly gradual, meaning you can get into a nice rhythm and work on your cycling tans! The gradients average at between 5% and 10% so they’re not like the lung busters of Scotland or the Lakes, but perfect for working on endurance.
You’ll also be cycling at high altitude (in Tenerife you can cycle for hours at over 6562ft). This is a great way of taking your training to the next level and be a step ahead of your cycling peers at home.
After your airport pickup, you will be transferred to our base hotel in the resort of Los Cristianos which is a few minutes from the beach. Here you will be briefed by your More Adventure leaders who will waste no time in getting the trip underway and you out cycling on some of the finest roads in Europe.
Each ride is fully guided and supported by a cycle leader and fully kitted out support vehicle. The rides are not compulsory, so if you would like a rest day on the beach, you are more than welcome!
Single room option is an additional £160 which can be added upon booking.
