Monday
Soria 70km Uphill 1170 - Downhill 1170
All starts are from the bike center in Playa del Ingles. Fairly easy warm-up the first 26 kilometers, out to Arguineguín on the rolling coast road and then very gently up to Cercado de Espinos. Save your energy, because from here on it’s up into the heavens. The local "Alpe d'Huez" with 5,1 km with an average 8% to Soria is the islands most popular climb. After the top, there is a wonderful restaurant which serves mango juice, toast or wonderful cinnamon-laced bread. Return home the same way.
Tuesday
Temisas - Fataga 85km Uphill 1750 - Downhill 1750
You head northeast along the coast catching the early morning sunshine. At Sardina, go inland and quickly enter the wild rolling valleys. You’ll be climbing in a nice steady gear, because there’s lots more climbing to come, up through the most inspiring rugged landscapes, via Temisas up to Santa Lucia for a deserved break. There’s a final challenge though, another 300m up to San Bartolomé before you descend to Fataga and back to bike station,
Wednesday
Pico East 101 km Uphill 2550- Downhill 2550
No cyclist coming to Gran Canaria can leave without doing the summit tour, a straight start from 20m to 1950m with only 45km in between. Heading straight up through Fataga, San Bartolomé and then to Cruz Grande at 1247m. A short flat section to rest, before a right turn at Ayacata, then it`s some serious climbing all the way to the top. Bring your camera and get that summit picture, before descending via Ingenio to the east coast with the famous tailwind back to Playa del Inglés.
Thursday
Monte Leon - Cercado de Espino 75km Uphill 1100 - Downhill 1100
You ride up the Ayagaures valley followed by a short climb up to the Pedro de González pass at 490m. Spectacular views before continuing down to complete the loop. In Maspalomas again, you continue to the rolling coast road before heading inland to Cercado de Espino where you can try some homemade juice and cake. After your lunch stop, you go back down the Soria-valley and complete the ride with some nice views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Friday
Fataga - Santa Lucia 67 km Uphill 1330 - Downhill 1330
Routes such as these make Gran Canaria a serious road cycling destination with an outstanding reputation! This tour has both long and short climbs, interspersed with both fast-paced and winding descents, as well as some long straights to practice your big rings speeds. All with the help of the famous east coast tailwinds in the last section to take you home to Playa del Inglés. This is the route to come back to Gran Canaria for again and again!
Saturday
Tauro 95 km Uphill 2090 - Downhill 2090
Fairly easy warm-up the first 26 kilometers, then we first climb our local "Alpe d'Huez" with 5,1 km of an average 8% to Soria before heading further up a steep road. After the top, we descend down to Mogán for a quick coffee and chat. Once slightly recuperated it's time to head back up the beautiful Taurposs or "Serenity" climb again. The view is worth sharing so be sure to grab a photo. Return down Soria and home along the coast road.
Sunday
Mogan - Valley of The Tears 87 km Uphill 2450 - Downhill 2750
The iconic "Valley of The Tears" will leave you breathless – in several ways. After a 40 min shuttle, you start tackling two small climbs before descending on new tarmac. After stocking up on food and drinks in La Aldea, you climb up through the Valley of The Tears and up to the very steep road that leads to Ayacata in the center of the island.
