Our friend Tuomo from Finland has joined our group for one day Mountain bike tour in Gran Canaria. Being a skilled raider, we gave him the chance to open the riding on first position to get some nice clip to edit. This is the result: we warmed up first with a fast Camino de La Plata trail, one of the most popular Gran Canaria mountain biking tours. Then we switched to El Ventoso trail, an amazing single track immersed in breathtaking views, ending the day shredding on El Diablo trail. A nice day of Mountain biking in Gran Canaria came out from this riding.
Welcome to a one day tour of mountain biking in Gran Canaria!
A wonderful experience with an international group of bikers. Our mates Giorgio from Italy and Witek from Poland show us some adrenaline rides on Pico de las Nieves mtb tour. Pine forest trails, rock gardens sections, fast and flow downhill, rocky trails among low bushes and cactus, ending with a super funny sections with berms and jumps that lead us directly into the city… Over 40km of fun along a great variety of trails. This is the style of cycling in Gran Canaria that we love the most!
We rode the full version of the Camino de La Plata, a classic Gran Canaria mtb tour with our mates Emanuele and Jonas. From Pico de Las Nieves, located at 1950 meters, we flowed to the sea along an endless series of trails. First we had a long flow dance through the high altitude pine forests, which makes mountain biking in Gran Canaria every time more evocative.
Once out from the pine forests we spread over a wide variety of single tracks, immersed in a truly unique in the world panorama.
To sweeten the day we ended on the new Yegua trail, an exciting sigle track builded by the locals bikers. Get ready to end this mountain biking adventure on a bike park style trail, with jumps and berms among the characteristic low shrubs of the south of Gran Canaria.
Today we get the bike, wear the GoPro cam and go for an exploration of El Diablo trail, one of Gran Canaria’s most popular mtb tours.
The speed is low because it has recently rained and the conditions of the trails are not exactly the best. Better to focus on the track in front of us and stop every now and then to move a few rock within our reach 🙂 that has invaded the trail. Gran Canaria mountain biking is also this: take care of the tracks of the island, to ride safety and fun.
Guayadeque trail is another classic mtb tour here in Gran Canaria. From the top of the island, at 1950 meters, to the ocean. Immersed in an astonishing panorama, we launch ourselves from the summit into a spectacular trail on volcanic gravel soil. Fast sections immersed in the pine woods lead us to the longest and most representative section of the Guayadeque trail: a very long single track on funny red soil, winding through the typical low shrubs of Gran Canaria. An endless trail that reaches the beach on the ocean and gives us an intense and unforgettable day of mountain biking.
Locals Only trail is the unknown face of mountain biking in Gran Canaria. We move to the North, behind the capital Las Palmas, for a long loop ride on trails with the typically “local” flavor. The green of the vegetation dominates and, in some moments, we seems to be on another island, or maybe in Peru. What a contrast with the Southern trails!
These are the training trails of locals riders and here you can also ride some stages of the most beautiful enduro mountain bike races in Gran Canaria.
