A perfect mix of great riding, fun and relax!
The week will involve great riding and recovery, exactly the way all pros do it!
The first week of riding is a mix of undulating roads and medium climbs near the coast and also includes a couple of attempts to the impressive Teide Volcano, whilst the Second part is a challenging training week with long rides up & down the Volcano.
You will ride with experienced guides who are racers as well, happy to share all their knowledge! Our team bus 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!
Enjoy the best views of the Island of Tenerife mixing hilly training rides and relax time on the beach!

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!
