Ride 3: Timanfaya Fire Mountain
On-Bike Statistics: 107 (Km), 1,121 (M) elevation
This ride takes you through the heart of this volcanic island,Timanfaya National Park. Here you will ride close to the fire mountain and if your lucky, see the tourists been taking up the mountain on the local camels.
I remember when I first rode this route, I kept stopping to take pictures and as I went through UGA, I was amazed at the contrast this island can deliver, from volcanic landscape to lush green towns with white washed houses and green palm trees. This is a tough ride but very rewarding with varying terrain, not major climbs but steady long climbs.
Route Costa Teguise - Puerto del Carmen - Mancha Blanca - Yaiza - Uga - Conil - PdC - Costa Teguise
Ride 4: Mirador del Norte
On-Bike Statistics: 75 (Km), 1,027 (M) elevation
Mirador is the furthest point of the northern edge of the island. So why do cyclists ride all the way there? Well, once you see the views from Mirador del Rio of the neighbouring isalnd of La Garacia, you will understand why so many riders visit this part of the island. Mirador has a great little cafe with panaromic views of the coast and La Garacia which are breathtaking.
The ride to Mirador passes through Haria, which is a beautiful town situated within the mountains and surrounded by palm trees. The ride provides some short but challenging climbs up to Haria, passing by the huge wind turbines before passing the observatory and an opportunity to fly down the hairpin bends towards Haria.

Our Expert Guides
Meet Mick, your bike tour guide for Mollydoo Lanzarote.
Living and working full-time as a bike tour guide on the "Rock" as many locals fondly refer to the island, Mick knows the Lanzarote terrain like a sailor knows the sea. Besides being on the bike, your day will be filled with local banter, folklore, stories of historical interest and the occasional whisper from the world tours.
Having raced at a young age in Ireland and Belgium, you will hear nothing of a palmares unless you ask.....Cycling = Happiness in Mick's book. A day off can be a day at the beach, but more often than not he's hiking up a volcano with a bike on his back.
This guy loves cycling, so much, that he hope to take part in RAAM 2017 (Race Across America) solo!
See Lanzarote through the eyes of a cyclist who knows more inches of lava than anyone else on the island!
