Cycling in the Canary Islands
International cycle races have encouraged many people to take up cycling for recreation and exercise, but the wet and cold weather of the UK and much of Northern Europe mean that outdoor cycling is a soggy experience. However, professional cyclists have been training in the Canary Islands for many years, because the roads are safe and also offer challenges for those wanting the experience of steep climbs and wind resistance on coastal roads.
The other advantage for cyclists coming to the Canary Islands is that they are a short flying distance from most of Europe, and offer mild temperatures and hardly any rain for most of the year. The roads of the Canary Islands are often used by cycling professionals, as well as tourists, who want to escape from the tourist centres to discover what these islands can offer. Professional cyclists are likely to bring their own bikes on cycling training holidays, but what about tourists who want to cycle on holiday?
Organised cycling holidays are available with English speaking guides, quality bikes, planned cycle holiday routes and arrival to departure service with accommodation, or rent your bike locally and follow the suggested cycle trips.
