We begin the excursion by warming up the muscles on asphalt road with a few pedal strokes, which take us to the beginning of this adventure, a comfortable dirt track, which gentle makes us gain altitude always with contained slopes.
In a flash we find ourselves on the ridge of one of the many barrancos in the area, from which our view can sweep free at 360 degrees, up to the high mountains of the center of the island towards the north and towards the ocean in all other directions. A pleasant show that accompanies us for almost the entire ride.

Before reaching the highest point of the day we break the gentle climb with a nice single track up and down, which act as an appetizer of the type of single trails we will ride today.

In a little while we reach the point from which the single trails begin. This second part of the ride totally winds on various and fun single tracks. A very long flow among bushes, cactus and plants typical of the southern desert of Gran Canaria, which always makes our participants shouts of appreciation and joy!

A Cross Country race has recently been held in this area and we benefit from the work done by local bikers, who have opened new variants and fixed the trail floor very well, making it close to perfection!

With a few pedal strokes here and there we can keep up the pace, since the trails are never steep, but on the contrary pleasantly fluid and with a slope that is always well manageable. Some steps between rocks allows us to take some breaks that we can take advantage of to take photos and selfies to be published on social…

The last part of the ride offers us exotic tracks and settings that change suddenly, giving us a feeling of variety that enriches this adventure.

Finally, with a very short descent on dirt track we reach the starting point of this tour, where the bike shuttle awaits us to bring us back “to civilization”.
