Tour of Gran Canaria Stage 1 Overview

Stage 1 69 km (43 miles) with 1103 metres of ascent. Most people will choose to hire bikes and these will be picked up this morning, we’ll spend as much time as necessary to ensure everyone is properly fitting to their bike and preapred to start. Today is a local ride from the hotel, giving us chance to stretch our legs and check out our bikes before the tour ahead. We’ll make our way along the glittering coastline, following an undulating road that overlooks the Atlantic. After 12 kilometres, we turn inland on a quiet road that bisects a deep valley of lava cliffs. As buzzards circle above us, it’s time to zone out and find our own rhythm for the 9 kilometre climb into the brilliant mountain sunshine. The climb ends at the mountain village of Soria (600m), overlooking the deepest reservoir on the island. We’ll have lunch at the popular mountain restaurant of Casa Fernando, renowned for its wholesome food. After soaking up the sunshine, we head back the same way with a glorious descent to the coast.
