The Valley Escapade - Mountain bike excursion on Gran Canaria

An adventure through the Barranco de Tirajana ravine! Amazing mountain scenery, historic sites and ocean breeze! Light lunch included.

After the check-in at the Playa del Inglés Free Motion Bikecenter, we load up and transfer ourselves and our MTBs to our starting point in Sardina. From here we enter the Barranco de Tirajana and begin our gentle climb to the north.
The impressive ravine slowly narrows as we approach the spectacular Fortaleza Rock, a historic site for the indigenous people, the Guanches, of the Canary Islands. Harsh rocky scenery is mixed with abundant palm groves as we climb up from the ravine towards the village of Santa Lucia, our lunch-stop for today.

After restoring our energy levels, we ride across to the other side of the valley and join a scenic dirt track on the western side of the ravine, perfect for MTB! We follow this undulating track for a few kilometres in a southerly direction, through small hamlets and a few palm tree oases.
The road converts to a fast-paced, rocky downhill section, and eventually brings us to the coastline, which we follow back to Playa del Inglés. Here, we conclude the MTB cycling tour and can enjoy some well-deserved refreshments!

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY (TD): Most of the ride is TD1, with a few short TD2 sections. (See the Technical Difficulty scale for details.)
FITNESS LEVEL (FL): A Medium-FL is required for this MTB tour. The ride has a few climbs and some of them are relatively long and/or steep! (See the Fitness Level scale for details.)
