The Spanish territory provides excellent conditions for newbies and experienced riders all year round, and boasts some of the most iconic and enjoyable routes on the continent.
Tenerife attracts thousands of cycling enthusiasts each year. Popular routes include the 60mi Ausblick Loop, the 35mi San Antonio Loop, and the San Juan Loop from Adeje, which is just over 30 miles and 2,650ft of climbing. The more seasoned cyclists will want to take on the iconic Mt Teide. It’s tough, but the rewards of completing it – along with the views – vindicate the effort.
In addition to providing various organised cycling races throughout the year, as well as group challenges, Tenerife is home to several high-profile triathlons. So, the ultra-competitive can embrace the rich history of the island with these sports for the biggest challenge of their lives. As a popular destination, though, the area also boasts plenty of relaxed fun cycling events.
There are so many different ways to explore the island while the size of it means that there is no need to keep moving each day. Simply complete your daily cycle and return to your hotel, villa, or apartment. This makes Tenerife a particularly great option for those planning their first cycling-centric holiday in the coming months.
So, don’t just head to Tenerife for sun, sea, and sand. Visit for cycling too!
