Cycling in Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is a great choice if you’re wanting to enjoy stunning surroundings while cycling. From Saharan sands to mountainous lands, you’ll see the scenery change dramatically as you pedal. And the resorts you can choose from highlight the incredible diversity.

Coastal plains

Stay in Playa Del Ingles or Meloneras and you’ll be close to routes tracking from flat sand dunes to rich forests. From pretty Puerto Mogan, you can also start a 190km-long route that traces an entire circuit of the island’s coastline.

Island life

The Canary Islands’ biggest capital, Las Palmas, is an atmospheric city of medieval cathedrals and colonial architecture. In the evenings, you can also keep your energy levels up at the glitzy nightclubs and bars around Playa del Ingles.

Thrilling hills

The verdant north is a point for riding into the green valleys of Teror, and the marvel-inducing views of Pinos de Galdar. Brace yourself for the breathtaking challenge of Pico de Las Nieves – it’s Gran Canaria’s highest point with energy-sapping gradients of 23%.
