Canary Riding Style
The common riding style here on the island is called “volcanic”. It’s about natural mountain tracks, partly rocky and partly dirt not too fast trails. The riding style is mainly technical. Positive altitude gaps are limited, thanks to the bike shuttle, which avoids to climb too much under the severe sun of these latitudes. So we can fully enjoy the endless downhill to the ocean. The ideal rider loves technical trails, rock gardens and active riding, while the best bike here is a strong all mountain with good travel. Enduro is perfect.

The ideal bike to have fun in Gran Canaria is an enduro bike. You can also enjoy an E-mtb, as those we rent. The important thing is that it is a fairly recent bike with reliable and functional components. DH bikes are not recommended, because there are also challenging climbs to be tackled.
Yes of course! You can rent mountain bikes on site. Our technical rental partner has different types of bicycles available, with components of a fairly high level. We strongly recommend you to give a try at our brand new E-mtb: super funny bikes that our guests love very much!
Yes, you must equip yourself to tackle challenging trails.
HELMET: it is mandatory. We recommend the enduro full-face helmet with detachable chin-guard for the most technical and demanding tours.
KNEEPADS: highly recommended. Ideal are enduro models, which allow you to pedal well and give a decent protection.
ELBOW: recommended for the most technical and demanding tours. Better the soft enduro models, because in case you want to remove them, they do not clutter much in the backpack.
ARMOUR AND BACK PROTECTOR: there are no mandatory indications for these protections. In theory, the more protected and the better. However, consider that the weight of an armour and his thermal effect when pedaling can greatly reduce comfort and increase tiredness.
BACKPACK: it is mandatory. In fact, it is necessary to bring a good supply of water, along with a wind/rain-proof jacket, at least one spare air tube suitable for your bicycle, energy bars and a minitool for emergency repairs.
Mountain bike clothing is recommended. In particular, it is advisable to wear an intimate padded boxer whit protective padding in the seat area, to avoid to get bored in the perineum area. A wind/rain-proof jacket jacket is also needed, because the weather can change very quickly, specially on the top of the island.
The tours last from 4 to 6 hours on average. This is however a general indication, as it depends on the participants’ fitness and skills.
Yes, to participate in the tours you should have a good fitness and good technical skills. On a case by case basis it is however possible to evaluate and organize shortened and / or suitable tours even for not to much trained people.
Our tours are selected for bikers with a discrete skill and technical background. By chance, however, it is possible to evaluate and organize less demanding tours, suitable even for beginners.
In general, food autonomy is necessary to participate in the tours. It is possible that we will pass by restaurants / bars, but their opening is not guaranteed, nor is it possible to program the stop depending on the food requirements of the participants. For this reason, a packed lunch is usually planned, so plan to bring at least a few energy bars with you.
Night tours also include bicycle front and rear lights. However, if you have your own bike light and / or helmet light system, you can take it with you.
Sure. E-mountain bikes are the best choice to join us!
Please be aware that e-MTBs currently can not travel on airplanes due to battery restrictions. Therefore, if you want to use an e-mtb you can rent it from us.
Contact us. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
