Once Reached the altitude of 1000 meters above the sea level with our bike shuttle, we start the tour on a fun dirt road, great appetizer to get the right pace. After a few kilometers, on the side of the volcanic crater, we dive into the picturesque San Bartolomé, the most important secular village in the south of Gran Canaria. From here we venture into a series of narrow path and dirt tracks that, after countless ups and downs, will take us to a small oasis, where we could rest a few moments in the shade of palm trees, before facing a long and exciting descent, which will lead us straight to the sea…
The last part of the tour is a long coasting by the sea. First we will cross a protected area facing the ocean, then we will ride along the most beautiful beaches of the south of the island, to the beginning of the famous dunes of Maspalomas, the small sahara in the heart of Gran Canaria.
