About Tenerife
Many professional cycling teams have done their preparation in Tenerife. Famously it was on Tenerife’s good quality roads that Team Sky prepared their Tour de France successes. Tenerife is well-known for its “eternal spring”. The average temperature ranges between 15ºC minimum and 30ºC maximum throughout the year. The opportunity of cycling at 2,330 metres above sea level is something you will find in very few places in the world. Especially in the European winter when everyone is skiing. Climbing from sea level up to 2,330 metres in just a few hours make Tenerife different and unique in the world as a cycling destination. There are over 20 distinct routes with climbs that rival the toughest of the Alps. There is low to almost non-existent traffic on endless, smooth mountain roads. The island has embraced its’ growing two-wheeled culture, offering ample bike resources and a positive attitude towards cyclists.
