Ride Itinerary & Useful Info
Ride 3: Caleta de Famara Circular
On-Bike Statistics: 72.4 (Km), 940 (M) elevation
Our third and final ride takes us through the centre of the island taking in the volcanic environment and traffic free roads. We make our way to the north west coast towards Caleta de Famara, a small fishing village and an amazing beach which is highly popular with local and international surfers. This section delivers a spectacular 12 kilometre descent down to the coast.
Caleta de Famara has some stunning views and a selection of nice, if simple restaurants, it has much to offer if you want to chill out for a while before climbing back on the bike. We head towards the municipality of Tinajo, which was a hive of volcanic activity back in the 17th century of which half of the area was buried by lava during the eruptions.
Heading away from the town of Tinajo on the LZ67 towards the volcano park lies the village of Mancha Blanca. A conurbation that enjoys almost legendary status on the island, as it is here that the lava flow from the volcanic eruptions finally halted. Thanks to the intervention of Dolores, who is now the patron saint of the island. We finally make our back to Costa Teguise via San Bartolome, after which we enjoy a nice descent back to the hotel.
Depending on flight times you will be picked up from your hotel and transported to Lanzarote airport via a private transfer. We will confirm the time of pick up once flights are booked.
UK Flight: 4 (Hrs) 10 minutes Transfer: approx 15-20 minutes
Your flight from the UK will take approx. 4 hours and 10 minutes depending on your chosen UK airport departure point.
After a short 15-20 minute transfer from the airport, you will arrive at the Hotel which is situated within the stunning resort of Costa Teguise.
Our cycling takes place on a Sunday, Tuesday and Friday and the rides will be in the morning and you should get back early afternoon lunch time. This gives plenty of time to spend with the family as part of your beach & bike holiday.
Relax around the hotel pool, visit the beach and many attractions around the resort of Costs Teguise and of course the rest of the island. This is your time and you decide what you want to do for the week, but if you would like some help on what to do, excursions or places to visit, we are here to help.
Suggestion: Why not hire a car for the day and visit the famous Mirador Del Rio? This is located at the north of the island and will reward you with some amazing spectacular view of the Neighbouring island of La Graciosa. Take a look at the pictures here of the amazing views.
Also why not drive to Playa Blanca and take the ferry across to Fuerteventura for the day, it only takes 45 minutes across the water!
Ride 1: San Bartolome Circular
On-Bike Statistics: 69.8 (Km), 890 (M) elevation
This is one of the best circular rides on the island which takes in the spectacular views of the famous La Geria wine region, which is littered with small black volcanic craters filled with grape vines. On our return leg we ride through the amazing Timanfaya national park which is surrounded by red volcanic rock and you may even catch a glimpse of the camels taking tourists up the mountain.
This circular ride starts with a steady climb out of Costa Teguise before reaching San Bartolome, a small canarian village. We then follow the secondary road to La Geria, the scenery is awesome and mostly down hill gradiant so you will get a chance to get some speed up. Be aware though as the return leg through the national park is a long steady climb for approx 4.5k but has rewarding views.
As we leave the national park, we make our way back to Bartolome which from there is a descent back down to your hotel. A great ride with magnificent views.
Ride 2: Spectacular Temisa Valley
On-Bike Statistics: 73.1 (Km), 1,275 (M) elevation
We head out of Costa Teguise towards Teseguite, a small white washed village. After around 15 kilometres we reach the pretty town of Los Valles which delivers a nice steady climb of around 7 kilometres, This is where the wind farm is located at the top which provides some spectacular views of the island.
We are rewarded with a nice descent that provides a thrilling section with several tight hairpin bends which then takes us into the beautiful Haria, which is lined with lush green palm trees and views of the distant volcanic mountains ahead. We take the Mirador del Rio road giving us magnificent views of mount Corona and take an alternative rout back towards Haria.
The last section of the ride is, we believe the most enjoyable as we take the famous descent through the valley of Temisa which takes us via a tight set of hairpin bends to reach the pretty hamlet of Tabayesco, where you can see the coast. The descent is amazing and the area is greener than the rest of the island providing an almost tropical environment. We finally head along the coast back to Costa Teguise.
