DESCRIPTION

We start this amazing Gran Canaria mountain bike tour onboard the bike shuttle, with which we’ll reach an important complex of dams in the backcountry, a precious reserve of water for the severe climate of the South. At an altitude of 310m we access the fire road that climbs, with gentle slope, on the left side of the canyon. The view is spectacular and, thanks to the well rolling surface and its slight gradient, we can enjoy it in an exciting hug. The easy to ride track lets us gain altitude with little effort. The more we climb, the more our sight can range among the canyons of the south, giving us a truly incredible and unusual view.

Once reached the first of a series of scenic balcony and after the ritual shots and selfies, we launch into an easy and fast downhill, that leads us into the adjacent canyon. Once we reach the bottom, we will climb up the other side, on a surface now a little stony, but always easily rolling. At the second panoramic viewpoint, we go down again on a fast and fun downhill, and then climb uphill again to a third panoramic balcony, from which the view is really impressive. It is impossible not to get off the bike and take a lot of pictures.

Now we ride downhill on a bit more challenging surface, until we reach a crossroads, from which begins the very fun and long final downhill. Here the most skilled can ride full gas and reach remarkable speeds, having fun on the wide red soil berms and switchbacks, which help to maintain the speed and the control even when cornering. After a series of amusing turns and short pedal strokes, the last downhill on a nice red soil track will surely tear out a few screams of excitement. In short we’ll reach the bottom of the last canyon, which will bring us with no effort into the city, behind Maspalomas.
