Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
Whoever comes to Gran Canaria as a racing cyclist, usually knows what to expect: mountains, passes, sunshine! ☀️🏜🏞☀️But a small, flat gem lies just outside Maspalomas: the eastern entrance to the Ayagaures dam. Here it is really leisurely with ca. 1 - 2% slope for about 9km there. A dream for downhill legs that want a little recovery ride.
Magnificent fincas with flowers en masse line the way. A nice experience to pedal for a long time.
Before the switchbacks you can either turn around and jet back or you take the approximately 300hm high to the viewpoint under the wheels.
