Tenerife boasts the highest mountain in Spain at a magnificent height of 3,700 metres. Bradley Wiggins put his mark on this island in 2012 as he prepared his body and mind for his dual win, the Tour and Olympics. You can reach as far as 2,350 metres on your bike, then if you want to reach the top, then it’s a cable car, I’m afraid. Once at the top, there is plenty to take in, including the red volcanic rocks and famous Parador hotel, where team sky made their home for their altitude training.
