A Tenerife Bike Tour suitable for everyone

A great classic of the bike tour in Tenerife, suitable for those who do not particularly like challenging climbs but still want to enjoy wonderful views even if from hilly heights, on safe roads and off the tourist routes.

Medano via Granadilla: Loop bike-tour

The departure will take place from our base in Costa Adeje, where you will be dropped off by the minivan that will come to pick you up at your hotel.

After the technical preparation of the bikes and the briefing we will move towards Los Cristianos, where we will begin the first uphill stretch, with an average gradient of 6%. A 4 km journey, crossing the locality of Chayofa, will take us to the summit at about 330 meters above sea level, in the locality of La Camella.

We will continue for about 3 km along a slight uphill slope with an average gradient of 2%, until we reach Valle San Lorenzo, at about 400 meters above sea level. A few kilometers after crossing this last village, we will stop at the Mirador la Centinela, a viewpoint from which to enjoy the wonderful view of the old craters below and, in the distance, of nature reserves such as those of Pal-Mar.

We will continue for another 4.5 km, always with average gradients that will never exceed 3%, up to San Miguel de Abona, a picturesque village at 600 meters above sea level, a place rich in places of historical and cultural interest, adventure parks and nature reserves, such as that of San Blas, a true nature book of geology.

From San Miguel we will move towards the town of Granadilla, along the magnificent TF21, always on a slight slope uphill for about 6 km.

This will be the highest point of the day, at about 650 meters above sea level, and from here we will start a wonderful downhill run in absolute safety, which will take us after about 5 km to the charming town of San Isidro and after another 5 km to El Médano, one of the most characteristic places of Tenerife, a destination for sportsmen who love water activities.

We will stop for a coffee on the seafront before returning to our Cycling Point, this time however following the coastal road, passing near the beach called Tejita and admiring Montana Roja, with its small volcanic inlet, and pausing for a selfie at Los Abrigos

This tour, like the others, can be modified according to your technical ability by scheduling the departure from different and simpler points.
