Cycling in Tenerife - explore the island and keep fit at the same time!


Just in case you're thinking that "Cycling in Tenerife" should be in the section on "Sport", this page is concerned with cycle routes as a way of exploring the island.



Tenerife offers three different areas that are ideal for cycling. If you're an avid cyclist at home, why not bring your bike with you? An airline will transport it for a fee of between £15 and £50 (you should shop around). It will have to be packaged in a certain way to be accepted, however. The bicycle must be in a bicycle box or bag - only one per bag allowed. This bag or box should contain no other items of luggage. The tyres must be deflated, the handlebars must be flush with the frame and the pedals must be flush against the frame or removed. The bicycle should be listed as "sporting equipment".

Alternatively, if you don't want to go through all this rigmarole, simply hire one on your arrival.




Safety

Always wear a cycle helmet.

Wear flourescent or reflective clothing.

Don't cycle at night.

Watch out for the tour buses (especially on mountain bends).




As mentioned above, there are three specific areas providing excellent routes for experienced cyclists.

TENO

The whole of this northwest part of Tenerife is extremely mountainous and, therefore, pretty challenging. You'll have calf muscles the size of melons when you've finished!

TEIDE

You can't, however, get more mountainous than Teide, can you? The most obvious challenge for cycling in Tenerife, you can also find reasonably easy rides in the mountain's surrounding areas.

ANAGA

Up in the northeasterly tip of the island, there are mountainous landscapes and cycling challenges galore.
