    With its height of 1949 meters, the Pico de las Nieves is the highest point of Gran Canaria. And as a racing cyclist, you can not help but climb it. On the one hand, this is simply part of a racing bike holiday on the island, on the other hand, due to the conical shape of the island, all roads lead to Pico de las Nieves anyway.

    Sometimes there is even snow up here, so the summit has its name. Very often it is definitely quite fresh here, pack the windbreaker. Often it is also very cloudy. If you're lucky, the cloud cover is below you, making the view even more spectacular. But it also happens that you are standing up here in a gray cloud soup.

    Highest point of the island and 50 km almost continuous rise - just beautiful!

    The roof of Gran Canaria you have to have just climbed times as a racing cyclist. Wonderful view included! Looking north you can spot the volcano Teide🌋 on Tenerife while the north of Gran Canaria often swirls under the sea of clouds.

    For me it was a must to have been up to the roof of GC and with the car that's too easy :-) Good sichtbös to Tenerife and the Teide can be seen well.

    The Pico de las Nieves is one of the mountains that should have made an avid racing cyclist.

    The views are amazing
    Why visit this place? Because of the sound of the birds, the silence of the traffic, the smell of strong pine, the clean air, the fog that envelops you,
    The views of a sea of clouds that you can see from above, the tranquility, the silence, the nature that surrounds you on the journey.
    The power to leave the mountains behind
    And reach the highest peak without anyone or anything stopping you💪🙃😉
    I think I have answered the question🙃😉👌🌿🌾🍀🌳🍃🚵‍♂️🚵‍♂️💪
