The climate is probably the biggest draw for Lanzarote. Being closer to the coast of Africa than other destinations in the Canary Islands archipelago, its conditions are drier and significantly more reliable. Although it can get swelteringly hot in the summer months, its warmth throughout winter makes it an ideal getaway for European cyclists escaping the cold and wet weather at home. Lanzarote is host to a very varied network of routes, with plenty of flat and undulating roads to complement the climbs. The volcanic landscape provides a unique backdrop to any cycling adventure whether you’re after a pre-season training holiday or a leisurely escape from the wintery cold. Great food, wine, well-kept roads, and a friendly atmosphere make Lanzarote a destination you will be talking about for a long time.
