The Gran Guanche - E-Bike Trekking excursion on Gran Canaria

Historic sites and spectacular scenery, with mountains and ravines! Slow-cycling at its finest, with Canarian tapas lunch included!

After checking in at the Free Motion Bicycle shop in Playa del Inglés, we load up and transfer ourselves and our eTrekking bikes along the coast to our starting point in Sardina. From here we start our climb towards the village of Santa Lucia. The route takes us along the exhilarating Los Cuchillos mountain road, with its many twists and turns. On the way, we pass by the spectacular Fortaleza Rock. This is a historic site for the Guanches, the indigenous people of the Canary Islands. Arriving in Santa Lucia, we take a short ride through the village before stopping for a typical Canarian tapas lunch!

After a pleasant replenishing of our energy levels, we ride on towards the small town of San Bartolomé de Tirajana. Another climb takes us up to Mirador de Fataga, a lookout point at an elevation of 900 metres. However, our e-bikes make easy work of the climb. From here we descend into the Fataga Valley, eventually passing through the village of Fataga. Now we take on the last climb of the day up to the Mirador Degollada de las Yeguas. This lookout rewards all our climbing efforts with some amazing views of both mountains and the ocean. From here it's all downhill, back to Playa de Inglés where we conclude the eTrekking tour.

This is an exciting ride with a few longer climbs that require a bit of effort. But, with our e-Trekking bikes, the electric assist means it should be a breeze. This is an ideal tour for those who often ride a bike for leisure.
