Gran Canaria and Tenerife are quite similar in many respects. For example, on both islands, you will find tightly packed beach tourists on the southern coast, and in the north less populated, green landscapes, which can be attributed to the cooler temperatures and less desirable weather. Both also offer good roads and lots of climbing as you make your way inland, making them sought-after places for experienced and well-trained cyclists. Although the summit of Gran Canaria’s highest mountain, The Pico de las Nieves, is not as high as the Teide on Tenerife, it is still one of the toughest climbs in all of Spain. In about 20 kilometers you cycle from sea-level to 1,940 meters! The Patronato de Turismo de Gran Canaria offers 8 cycle route booklets with routes between 40 and 100 kilometers.
