Cycling in Gran Canaria is the stuff dreams are made of, particularly if you’ve got thighs of steel and an enthusiasm that just won’t quit. A rugged circle in the core of the Canary Island archipelago, the weather is fantastic all year round, with winter being a particularly fantastic time to attempt the island’s challenging climbs.
The heart of the island is the much-loved Pico de las Nieves and its higher sibling, Morro de la Agujereada. Both make for unrivalled objectives for expert cyclists and on clear days, look north to see the giant Teide on Tenerife. Almost entirely mountainous, cycle routes in Gran Canaria will provide you with considerable climbing. Indigenous pine forests, jagged cliffs and exhilarating bike trails all mean you’ll be well-compensated for your effort: the descents are out of this world.
For flatter rides (and ice creams), cycling in Las Palmas is a fun way to explore the beaches and city.
