The final descent into the Grand Canyon will give us an exhilarating adrenaline rush, but there are no technical trails today. Moderate skills are required as we pedal mostly on rocky dirt roads and some tarmac. The climbs are mostly steady with some steeper sections.

We start this MTB tour in Vegueta, the historical centre of Gran Canaria's capital city.
From here, we climb through the gorgeous Guiniguada valley.  As we ride past banana plantations, we enjoy the authentic Canarian atmosphere. The initially wide valley becomes increasingly narrow and will put our MTB skills to the test.
We enjoy a well-deserved lunch in the lovely village of Santa Brigida before heading back. On our way back, we pass through the valley again and turn into the Barranco Seco canyon, where we enjoy some flowy trails. We end the ride by visiting historical Vegueta and stopping for the best coffee in town.
The tour is mostly on dirt roads and flowy singletracks (S1, S2). The climbs are long and steady with sporadic steep sections. A very good overall fitness level, as well as moderate technical skills, are required to enjoy this route.

We start this guided MTB tour on the famous mountain pass Cruz Grande. Our warmup consists of forest roads, that bring us to the Manzanilla viewpoint. Here the trail fun begins- a mix of demanding rock gardens and super flowy singletracks that take us to the Fataga Valley.
After lunch in Fataga village, we continue to the bottom of the valley, where we join the Camel Trail. After a big push up to the Yeguas viewpoint, we hit the longest trail of the day that brings us back to the Maspalomas area.

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.

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!"
