We start the ride from the town of San Isidro and we will ride up & down along the coast to the town of El Poris. This is to allow your legs to recover before the King´s day, the first challenge of the week. At El Poris we will stop at the sea-front cafe before returning along the same route.
RIDE DISTANCE: 75 km (40 miles)
TUESDAY: “King ́s day” – “click on the image for larger view”
This is the first real challenge of the week. We give you the option to start from Alcalá (at sea level) with an easy climb of 8kms and perfect warm up through the banana plantations, or start from Chio (at 680 m altitude) where we start the 24Km climb to the National Park of El Teide. The climbing isn’t over yet as we have a final 3km climb before we start a spectacular descent to Los Cristianos.
RIDE DISTANCE: 66 km (41 miles)
WEDNESDAY: Recovery day – “click on the image for larger view”
Today is a gentle recovery ride along the coast to the town of El Medano. This is to allow your legs to recover before the Queen’s day, the most challenging route of the tour. At El Medano’s we will stop at one of the many sea-front cafes before returning along the same route.
RIDE DISTANCE: 43 km (27 miles)
THURSDAY: “Queen ́s day” – “click on the image for larger view”
Our biggest challenge of the week! You´ll be transfered to “Los Loros” where your bike will be waiting for you to start the route. We start the climb of 13 kms to El Teide National Park. Breathtaking scenery awaits you, probably the most impressive landscapes Tenerife has to offer. Chris Froome said: “It´s like travelling to Mars”. After a cafe stop at the mythical Parador hotel and a photograph opportunity with Mount Teide in the background there is only 3kms more of climbing before another spectacular descent to Los Cristianos (same as King’s Day).
RIDE DISTANCE: 78 km (49 miles)
FRIDAY: “Vilaflor” + Paella Party – “click on the image for larger view”
After 5 days of a great cycling we give you the option to start from Vilaflor (1,400m altitude) or start from “The view point” at 1,700 m altitude. Either way you´ll arrive at the Parador hotel for a quick cafe stop and your last photo opportunity with El Teide. Only 5kms of climbing before we start one of the most beautiful descents to La Orotava for the Paella party at the Delgado’s family home in the countryside. Mama Delgado will greet you there with a warm smile and the wonderful aroma of her delicious cooking; the centre piece of which is a huge PAELLA, cooked the traditional way, of course!
RIDE DISTANCE: 61 km (38 miles)
RIDE DISTANCE: 373 km (232 miles)
All Tenerife Bike Training itineraries may be subject to slight route changes, hotel substitutions, and other modifications.
We´ll finish the 6th route in our typical Canarian House in the North of the island, where Mama Delgado will greet you with a warm smile and the wonderful aroma of her expert cooking; the centre piece of which is always a huge Paella, cooked the traditional way, of course.
