Cercados de Espino
Ocean views, rolling terrain and gentle climbing!
Distance: 50 km
Uphill: 620 m
Downhill: 620 m
Tour start: Playa del Ingles


€ 25,-excl. Rental Bike
Info & Booking
This is a road bicycle tour as easy as any Monday morning should be.

From Playa del Ingles, we head towards Arguineguin on rolling terrain along the coastline. Here, the gradients are gentle, and every pedal stroke rewards you with a view of the ocean.
In the roundabout before Arguineguin, we make a right and head into the Valley of Soria. This stretch of road is one of the flattest you will find in Gran Canaria. So look left, look right, and enjoy the views as you gently spin your legs. Just before the steep section starts, we turn around and enjoy a well deserved break in Cercados de Espinos.
Once we top up our energy levels , we will go back to the starting point, again through the valley and along the coastline.

Tour start: Playa del Ingles


€ 25,-excl. Rental Bike
Info & Booking
What is the Summit Challenge?
It is cycling from sea level to the highest point on the island, Pico de las Nieves. It is also one of the routes that make Gran Canaria one of the favorite destinations for cyclists from all over Europe. If this challenge seems rather daunting, you can still have the full fun at only half the distance!
From the bike shop in Playa, we take the GC 60 and head towards the mountains. What lies ahead? Some tough sections of climbing, the fabled view from the mirador Degollada de las Yeguas, a twisty descent and ... you will have to join us to find out!
One more thing! The tailwind along the coastline will give us an extra push and take us home to Playa del Inglés, without much effort.

Agüimes
Scenic climbs and historic villages
Distance: 63 km
Uphill: 800 m
Downhill: 800 m
Tour start: Playa del Ingles


€ 25,-excl. Rental Bike
Info & Booking
We start this road tour with a spin along the ocean coastline.
On most days, this stretch of road challenges cyclists with a headwind. Facing it requires a bit of effort, but the early morning light and the scenery will make up for it!
When we reach Vecindario, we turn inland and start climbing to Era del Cardón. From there, the road is a rollercoaster to Agüimes, offering panoramic views at every spin of the pedal. In this picturesque historic village, we will take a break, recharge our batteries and fuel up. Then we descend back along the same route to Playa del Inglés.
Depending on the group's preferences, we can choose to go back the same way or via another route.

Taurito
A classic route on Gran Canaria – a ride along the coastline
Distance: 58 km
Uphill: 800 m

Tour start: Playa del Ingles


€ 25,-excl. Rental Bike
Info & Booking
Like all our road cycling tours, this one also starts from the Free Motion shop in Playa del Inglés. From there, we go west and follow the GC500 along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
Our destination? Taurito Beach! First, however, we need to conquer the coastal road with its succession of short climbs and sharp descents. In Taurito we stop for a coffee break in one of the cafés along the beachfront. We will return along the same route.
 

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.

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!"
