TRAIN LIKE A PRO ON THE MAJESTIC TEIDE VOLCANO
AT 2100M ABOVE SEA LEVEL, LIVE LIKE A PRO!
Puerto De La Cruz / Teide
8 DAYS - 7 NIGHTS
Find out why so many top pro riders such as Pogacar, Pidcock, Roglic, Vingegaard spend 15-30 days a year training on the Teide Volcano. The big reasons? Great scenery, well-paved roads, 4 different sides to climb and many other challenging rides in the surrounding area, and the altitude factor!
We will share the venue with many pro riders and do exactly what they do: ride, eat, rest and repeat! Our team vehicle will support you along the road, setting up strategic feed zones with top quality sport food and refreshments. At the end of the ride, our professional masseur will take care of your muscles while our mechanics look after your bike!
Put simply, we’ll do what they do and see if it works for us as well!
WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?
The experience is built for all riders ready to challenge themselves on very demanding terrain. This is not a race or a high intensity training program, but the riders should be able to ride for 5-6 hours each day and finish each day with a 30-50km climb back up the Teide Volcano. This is ideal for riders looking for a big week of cycling in one of the most beautiful locations in the world.
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
As we mentioned, the Teide will be our main riding “partner,” which means long and twisty descents followed by long and steady climbs. Each side from sea level to the summit is around 45 km long with an average gradient of 5-6%, so not really steep, but the distance and altitude always make it harder!
Some of the other 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!
Super long descents, smooth roads, and a lot of respect from local drivers make it almost the perfect riding location!
