A Road Bike Tour Tenerife to the discovery of Santiago del Teide

The eponymous capital of the municipality of Santiago del Teide, which includes Puerto Santiago and Los Gigantes, is located 1000 m above sea level in the magnificent Valle de Santiago. Ride with us on Santiago’s Valley and explore the west coast of Tenerife, the giant rock formations of Los Gigantes, the canarian villages on the mountains, the historic little town of Santiago del Teide and its countryside, the moonlike landscape and the black volcanic rock of Arguayo.

The bike is the best way to discover Tenerife. Thanks to the quality rental services offered by the staff of Cycling in Tenerife, specialized in bike rental, with this excursion we will go, cycling, to discover the most fascinating corners of the Canary Islands.

An immersion in the landscape, a tour that, on request, can be customized according to your physical ability, with Easy, Medium or Expert options, with departures from different altitudes.

Itinerary

The departure of the tour (we will describe here the expert level “BIKE TOUR SANTIAGO DEL TEIDE,” which as mentioned can also be customized to make it easier, starting from a higher point) is from either your hotel or from the bike point of Cycling in Tenerife, located on the Adeje coast.

We will move, therefore, either from our base point or from your hotel, first of all in the direction of Playa Fenabè – La Caleta, between the blue sea and green palm trees, for about a 3 km climb, with a gradient of 6%, until you leave the tourist center and reach the state road along a golf course.

A fantastic climb and descent for about 12 km will take us towards Armenime – Playa San Juan, and then we embark on a climb of about 7 km, away from the tourist roads and surrounded by nature, between papaya plantations and bananas.

This “Bananas” climb will take us to Guia de Isora, known for its 16th-century church of “Our Lady of Light.” Suspended between sea and green, we will continue our ride for about 5 km downhill towards Cueva del Polvo, until we can see at a distance Los Gigantes, the famous cliff of 700 meters overlooking the sea.

From here we will start our climb divided into different stages.

The first, of about 5 km, will take us to the municipality of Tamaimo; from here, it is another 6 km to Santiago del Teide, about 1000 meters above sea level, the scene – in 1909 – of the last lava eruption of the Chinyero volcano, and a tourist destination for lovers of good food, nature and ceramics.

The last uphill stretch will be about 3 km towards Arguayo. After another 5 km, we will make our refueling stop at a local cyclists’ bar in Chios, where we will sample the Canarian fruit batido along with fresh seasonal fruit. The return to the base will be a fun downhill run of about 18 km.
