WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?
The experience is built for all riders able to ride for 4-5 hours. This is not a race or a high intensity training program: the goal is to put as much distance as we can in our legs as base training for the racing season.
We will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride. On top of each major climb we will regroup and enjoy the descent together. As a team, we’ll support each other during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy!
All cyclists interested in learning more about riding technique, training, and nutrition will have a lot of opportunities to consult our professional riders and staff, maybe while enjoying a drink by the pool or on the beach!

MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN
We have selected some of the best routes offering a mix of all terrains.
This part of Tenerife offers quiet roads away from the crowd.
Some of the climbs can be challenging with some steep sections, but generally for short distances. The climb to Masca has some 14-15%, and it’s definitely the hardest of the trip!
Climbing up the Teide Volcano is going to be challenging as well, but mainly because of the distance (45k from the coast!) and the altitude (2100m above sea level!).
Smooth roads and a lot of respect from local drivers make it almost the perfect riding location!
ON REQUEST, NOT INCLUDED
High-end rental bike
Personal airport transfer
Lunches if not specified
Day One – La Arena Warm-up Ride
Routes: 45km Total Ascent: 600m
This is a warm-up ride to ease the legs and body into 1-2 weeks of intense riding. Some of you may have only recently stepped off a plane, so this ride offers a great way to “tease” out that tiredness. It will include some small climbs and offer spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.
Day Two: La Arena loop to Guya de Isora
Main Route: 90 km; 63 mi | Total Ascent: 1500 m; 4900 ft (see datas)
What a start! Our first real ride will take us on the foothills of the Teide Vulcano, on some quiet roads ideal for a nice group ride. We will have great views of the ocean and the mountains and enjoy a nice Coffe and local snacks!
Day Three - La Arena loop to Masca
Main Route: 115 km; 71 mi | Total Ascent: 2000 m; 6500 ft (see datas)
We ride along the undulating coast and then up to Masca with spectacular views of the ocean all day long as well as The Teide Volcano, soon to become our main training location.
Day Four – La Arena loop to Teide Volcano
Main Route: 105 km; 66 mi | Total Ascent: 2300 m; 7200 ft (see datas)
Here we go, let’s climb! A short but challenging ride as we’ll spend most of the time climbing without the usual reward of a descent. The climb is nearly 50km (30mi) long, starting from sea level and reaching 2000m; but it’s not hard at all. Once on top, we’ll have plenty of time to explore the wild area on top of the still active volcano and meet some of the pros in the very charming hotel.
Day Five – La Arena to Puerto de la Cruz
Main Route: 75 km; 47 mi | Total Ascent: 1800 m; 9100 ft
After 5 days of intense riding we’ll take an easy one!
Today we ride in the opposite direction in the foothills of the volcano, with several challenging short climbs all the way to the picturesque town of Puerto de la Cruz.
Day Six – Puerto De La Cruz loop to Teide Vulcano via Orotawa
Main Route: 100 km; 60 mi | Total Ascent: 2200 m; 3300 ft
As most of the pros do, we’ll ride out and back along the scenic road at the summit of the volcano and then take a cable car up to the peak of the mountain to enjoy one of the best views ever.
Day Seven – Puerto de La Cruz loop to Punta de Hidalgo
Main Route: 160 km; 100 mi | Total Ascent: 3600 m;12000 ft
And what else would we do after the rest day…a big ride!! We’ll ride all the way to Punta de Hidalgo, then take in some up undulations along the coast and finally climb the longest side of Teide from Santa Cruz, which includes some steep sections at the begining but easier ones at the end.
Day Eight – Goodbye or Continue on the Volcano Training Experience
