Uphill: 1350 m
Downhill: 1350 m
Tour start: Playa del Ingles


€ 22,-excl. Rental Bike
Info & Booking
Prepare yourself for a unique road bike tour! We start our adventure at the Free Motion shop in Playa del Inglés. The first part of our ride is relatively flat and makes for a perfect warm-up. After we reach the bar la Cuevita, it's all uphill on hairpin bends to the Mirador de Ayagaures. There we stop and enjoy the panoramic view of the valley. Next, we descend towards Monte León, and turn right towards Los Palmitos Park as we reach the valley. This climb starts easy but gets a lot harder towards the end! Once we reach Palmitos Park we turn around and head to the Centro de Salud. There we have coffee, refill our tanks before heading to Salobre, via yet another climb. After we crest, we turn around, and it’s back to the starting point.

Soria
The route has all. Rolling terrain, long flats, climbs, and descents!
Distance: 70 km
Uphill: 1170 m
Downhill: 1170 m
Tour start: 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. Our local "Alpe d'Huez" with 5,1 km of 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.
 

Road biking on Gran Canaria:
The island has quiet mountain roads with smooth asphalt, spectacular scenery, high peaks, deep valleys, long climbs and fast descents - equally suited for pros, amateurs and hobby riders. Eternal summer makes riding ideal all year. The classic climbs like "Pico de las Nieves", "Serenity-Tauropass" and "Valley of the Tears" are both challenging and rewarding experiences for all cyclist alike. More here.


You can switch the levels by clicking the level drop-down menu on the tour overview tab:

Hobby Roadbike GC
Hobby Roadbike

Average daily mileage: 58-96km

Daily elevation: 930m up to 2.610m

Average speed: 20-25 km/h

Hobby bicycle tours are for riders used to being in the saddle for at least 2 hours. Having experience with cycling in a group is recommended. As we venture further into the heart of the island, we'll face several climbs. The pace will be moderate but steady. Fear not, we will take breaks for refuelling and taking photos.

Sport Roadbike GC
Sport Roadbike

Average daily mileage: 52-96 km

Daily elevation: 930m up to 2.610m

Average speed: 22-27 km/h

Sport road cycling tours are for the experienced rider, the one who is used to long hours in the saddle, riding in a group, and that can hold a faster and more consistent pace on climbs. We will occasionally stop to take in the views or fill our bottles. The mid-ride lunch break is a certainty.

Only for experienced mountain bikers. Variable and difficult terrain conditions. Not suitable for beginners!
Advanced MTB riding skills are necessary for all tours from level 3. 

The level description refers to the point scale you can find on each MTB tour box:

CHOOSE YOUR LEVEL

Free Motion offers mountain bike tours with two levels - Intermediate and Advanced.

To make sure you have the best possible experience on tour with us, it's essential that you choose a level that fits your abilities. Take into consideration that you're going to ride on a volcanic, rocky island. The surface is most likely a bit rougher than what you are used to when cycling in Middle- and Northern Europe.

You are on holiday! 

To make sure you have a fun experience all throughout the tour, please be honest with yourself when choosing tour level. With enough energy, you will be able to enjoy the ride fully, stay safe and get back with a smile on your face. 

If you're not sure which level to choose, it's recommended to book the lower level. The first few kilometers on each tour, both levels ride together. When we split the group, there is still the possibility to down- or upgrade the pre-booked level. Our guides are there to suggest the best option for you and to ensure "The Perfect Ride!"
