Soria 70 km - Uphill 1170m - Downhill 1170m
From Playa del Ingles to Soria, you ride on all types of terrain: rolling, flat, long climbs, short climbs, and descents. The views are as diverse: ocean coastlines, valleys, and mountains. What is the ride like? You start with a 17km warm-up in the direction of Arguineguín. Next up, a gentle climb to Cercado de Espinos. Last, but not least, the challenge of the day: the 5,6km climb up to Soria at an average of 8%. At the top, you stop at a local restaurant that serves mango juice, toast, and delicious cinnamon-laced bread. You return along the same route.
Palmitos Ayagaures 64 km - Uphill 1100m - Downhill 1100m
You start your adventure at the Free Motion shop in Playa del Inglés. The first part of your ride is relatively flat and makes for a perfect warm-up until you reach the Bar la Cuevita. From there, it's all uphill on hairpin bends to the Mirador de Ayagaures. There you stop and enjoy the panoramic view of the valley. Next, you descend towards Monte León and turn right towards Los Palmitos Park as you reach the valley. The next climb starts easy enough but gets a lot harder towards the end! Once you reach Palmitos Park, you turn around and head to the Centro de Salud. There you have coffee and refill your tanks before heading to the Faro Maspalomas. After that, it’s back to the starting point.
Pico East 101 km - Uphill 2550m - Downhill 2550m
This climb to the highest point of the island is a must-do for every ambitious cyclist visiting Gran Canaria. And what better way to do it than in the company of like-minded people and with the assistance of an experienced bicycle guide? On this tour, You'll pedal from 20m to 1949m, in just under 50 km. The road to Pico is not a continuous climb but a cycling adventure with steep sections, followed by easy gradients and even some short descents. The route? You start in Playa del Inglés and follow the GC 60. You pass through historical villages like Fataga and San Bartolomé. When you get to Ayacata, you turn right, and the fun begins - 11km with 650m of climbing! Bring your camera for the photo of the summit! The descent back to the coast is as rewarding as the climb. And, once there, the famous coast wind will be in your favor all the way to the finish line.
Santa Lucia - Fataga 82 km - Uphill 1520m - Downhill 1520m
From the bike shop in Playa del Inglés, you head west, along the coastal road. Brace yourself! There usually is a headwind in this section. However, the ocean view in the morning light will compensate for that. As soon as you turn left and head inland, the wind stops and the climbing begins. Up to Santa Lucia, the gradient is steady and mildly challenging. As you climb, on the left, you'll see Fortaleza - one of the most relevant archaeological settlements in Gran Canaria. After that, you pass Santa Lucia and continue our climb towards San Bartolomé, only to turn left again and enjoy a fun descent to Fataga. With a couple of surprise short climbs, that is. Next stop after Fataga, a viewpoint: Degollada de las Yeguas. Finally, you go downhill and back to the starting point in Playa del Inglés.  
Tauropass 92 km Uphill 1770m - Downhill 1770m
You meet in Playa del Ingles and take the shuttle to Puerto de Mogan. From there, you start the gentle climb up to Mogan at 249m. After passing through the charming village, you turn off to the right and start one of the most beautiful climbs in Spain. Some call it Tauropass, others call it Serenity. After reaching the first summit at 915m, the road continues uphill, and you get a fantastic view of the Presa las Ninas reservoir. For the next 10km, you continue to climb steadily to Ayacata where you stop for a break. At 1375m you have also reached the highest point on today’s tour and can now enjoy the long descent through San Bartolomé and Fataga: a well-earned reward after all the climbing!
