Today’s menu gives you a long flat of almost 26kms, out to Arguineguín and then very gently up to Las Filipinas. Where the road continues up into the heavens, we turn around and enjoy a nice break in Cercado de Espino before returning back down the easy valley. In short, easy rolling terrain with ocean views -at the beginning and towards the end- with a little dose of gentle climbing.
A short bus ride brings us to Aguimes for our first climbing experience of the week. We cycle towards Era del Cardon on a winding road with the usual tail wind. Once there, we climb up to Santa Lucia for a coffee-stop. You’ll see the massive valley of Lomo de Gallego and the imposing but tragic Fortaleza. A further climb to San Bartolomé, before a fun descent to Fataga and a couple of “surprise” climbs before the finish line.

The beach at Taurito is the midpoint of this rolling and undulating tour along the south coast road GC-500 that goes from Playa del Inglés towards Puerto de Mogán. The Atlantic Ocean always stays very close by during the whole ride. Once in Taurito it´s the perfect time to take a coffee break in one of the many cafés along the beach front, then return to Playa del Inglés along the same coast route.
