CANYONLANDS

1 DAY MOUNTAIN BIKE TOUR

Canyonlands is the emblem of the Gran Canaria mountain bike trail: a dance from one side to the other on different canyons that, from the center of the island, wed themselves to south into the ocean. We will be constantly accompanied by breathtaking views. So watch where you put your wheels!

DESCRIPTION

We reach 1300m above sea level thanks to the bike shuttle. After a warming up on comfortable forest road, let’s start the dance by diving on a nice single track that winds gently on a wide and scenic valley. At times fast, sometimes technical, is a real pleasure to ride, thanks to some berms and small drops uphill, which keep the rate of fun high!

After a few kilometers of “dance” we reach the opposite side of the canyon, from which we left. Starting from here begins the perhaps most exciting section of the tour: a beautiful mountain ups and downs, on a fast and never too demanding trail, which allows us to enjoy film archive mountains scenarios. Care must be taken not to distract too much!

In the second part of the tour we travel with the ocean well in sight. The trails now are fast and invite you to push hard on the pedals. A descent on asphalt makes us regain some strength, before tackling the last trail, sometimes technical and sometimes flow, thanks to which we gently glide towards the most southern part of the island.

The tour ends on the promenade of Meloneras, just around the corner of the sand dunes of Maspalomas, to take the edge off with a mega-ice cream or an ice-cold beer, savored in front of the ocean.
