ROAD BIKE TOUR TENERIFE:
EL PORIS BY SAN ISIDRO – TF 28
Intermediate level road bike tour in Tenerife, suitable for all cycling adventure lovers.

A Road Bike Tour Tenerife to the discovery of the fishing village El Poris
The day begins with a comfortable pick-up from your accommodation, the cycling guide will welcome you on board the minivan, where your bikes are already organized, then we head towards the starting point in the Medano – San Isidro area. After the briefing and having set up the bikes, we start our bike tour towards El Poris. The first 10 kilometers will be characterized by continuous and fun “ups and downs” never steeper than 5%, on very wide and safe roads. we continue on the magical TF 28, which for hundreds of years was the only road connecting the sea and the mountains, until modern motorways were built.
From this point we travel 8 kilometers in the heart of the island, with very short descents / ascents and always minimal slopes that help us to savor the breathtaking landscapes that follow one another, accompanied by the typical yellow walls that delimit the road.
Once in Villa de Arico, we will stop for a coffee before starting the long descent that takes us to El Poris, a fishing village located on the east coast of the island of Tenerife where time seems to have stopped. After the usual photo in front of the black sand beach, we begin the only timid but spectacular climb of about 10 kilometers constantly between 3 and 5%, crossing the wind farm which brings us back, after 500 meters of positive difference in altitude, again in Villa di Arico where we will close our loop.
From here we cover about 20 kilometers of gentle ascent and descent, which will bring us back to the starting point.
