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:
Average daily mileage: 41-67 km
Daily elevation: 560m up to 1.330m
Average speed: 18-24 km/h
Cappuccino road tours offer a new experience for those who want to enjoy a ride during their holidays. We will explore the Canarian scenery, in the company of like-minded people. The pace is slow, offering us enough time to enjoy the views and take photos.
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.
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!"
