The Mountain Bike Camp

Gran Canaria is for mountain biking is what Mars is for space exploration! There’s just and is still, an enormous amount of undiscovered trails and tracks that only the really intrepid bikers can explore and map.

So with our help, we can at least show you what you can do, to whet your appetite for longer, more diverse rides in the future. Cycle Gran Canaria with our partners Free Motion bring it all together so that you can hit the single track straightaway on your first morning at 3 levels and fully guided.

Mountain Biking on Gran Canaria

It’s certainly tough riding here, but you’ll have the latest in mountain biking technology supplied by Cannondale and Specialised to ensure you cope with the varied terrain and changing surfaces. You can upgrade too and try out something really advanced!

 

All riders are shuttled up to the trailheads, where you’ll get prepped to spend a glorious day cutting and carving your way back down to the coast, through the best scenery the island has to offer.Each day is a different trail in a different part of the island.

There are 3 levels of trail to choose from.

  1. Sport
  2. Sport XL
  3. Single Trail.

All the tracks & trails here are a mix of fireroad, rocky descents, rocky singletrack and loose climbs, there are no soft landings, except perhaps on some of the trails in the north, so bring your knee and elbow pads or rent them from us here.

You’ll be very happy staying at Bungalows Cordial Green Golf! The location of our establishment next to the golf course of Maspalomas, its colourful and cheerful architecture, the great pools and spacious solariums make this resort a great place to enjoy a wonderful holiday with family or friends.

It’s a bike friendly hotel with 24hr reception with gated entry, it’s safe to leave your bikes in the room. Be careful riding and walking on the tiled surfaces in the walking paths, which may be wet from the gardens sprinklers!

The apartments are very well spread out and even if it’s busy, there’s always a quiet place amongst the palm trees to relax and contemplate the blue skies after your ride. It’s only a 15min walk or a 3€ taxi to Melonares for a wide selection of restaurants for your evening meal or you can choose the expansive buffet within the hotel itself. It’s also a 15min ride to the bike centre and you’ll sleep well at night because it’s in the quiet sector.
