A perfect introduction to mountain biking on Gran Canaria. Today’s route proving that the mountains and isolated wilderness are literally just minutes away from the tourist areas. A long rocky track takes you deeper and deeper in to the famous “Grand Canyon”, then long loose climbs up past lonely farms and orange groves. You’ll traverse deep gorges and ravines, before descending quickly to the blue waters of the Ayaguares reservoir where you cross over and descend by road back to Free Motion.

The starting point of the tour is a short shuttle with the bikes, up to 900m. The first kilometers are a descent on narrow tracks, enough to get your pulse racing. Steady into San Bartolomé and then continue on an series of tracks and descents to the edge of the Caldera de Tirajanas, then another series of moderate climbs and fast descents to pause for a break at a palm oasis. Then you can expect a epic long descent to the coast. But be careful, the track needs attention at all times. Finish the day with a few unexpected climbs to remind you to conserve your energy.

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: 

Cappucino Roadbike GC
Cappucino Roadbike

Average daily mileage: 41-67 km

Daily elevation: 560m up to 1.330m

Average speed: 18-24 km/h

A new experience for those who want to ride easy while being active on a road bike during their holidays. Our guides will show you the wonderful scenery of Gran Canaria while you gain experience riding in a group with like-minded people. You will have enough time to rest and take photos. Two days a week there´s a shuttle service to a different starting point.

Hobby Roadbike GC
Hobby Roadbike

Average daily mileage: 58-96km

Daily elevation: 930m up to 2.610m

Average speed: 20-25 km/h

You’re ready to take on several climbs at a steady, but moderate pace. You will need to be a regular rider on the road and be able to ride for 2 hours minimum non-stop. We also recommend you have experience of riding in a group. We challenge ourselves once a week with the legendary climb to the summit (Pico de las Nieves), but at a slower pace than the other groups. 2

Sport Roadbike GC
Sport Roadbike

Average daily mileage: 52-96 km

Daily elevation: 930m up to 2.610m

Average speed: 22-27 km/h

The sport level has the same routes as our Hobby-level, with several climbs and long descents, but are ridden at a faster, more consistent pace. We stop occasionally to take in the views or fill our bottles. The mid route rest stop will be a well deserved break. Road riding is part of your sport regime and you feel comfortable with a stronger group in the mountains.

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 - Hobby and Sport. 

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!"
