Canary Islands

Well-known to the pros, the Islands of the Dogs rival Majorca as a dream bike training destination. Here, nothing is flat. The topography bears scars of volcanic activity, furrowed by ancient streams of lava. The temperature ranges from 18oC to 26oC year-round. Away from tourist areas, your route covers virtually the entire road network of the Gran Canaria and Tenerife Islands. The first leg involves a challenging ascent from Ingenio to Pico de las Nieves, or an elevation of 1,800 m over 20 km! The second comprises a 40-km route over a ridge, culminating at an altitude of 2,300 m, from where the sea can be seen from each side. And to top it all off, the trip starts and ends in Barcelona.
