Tour of Gran Canaria Stage 2 Overview

Ride 2 Fataga Temisas 85km 2300m The ride today is long and throws a constant series of false flat uphill drags which will take their toll on riders who ride too hard in the early sections or don’t refuel adequately at the appropriate points.We start climbing directly from the start through the urban resort area and out onto the open climb to Mirador de Fataga, 10km in with 450m completed, the sun will usually be strong at your 4 o’ clock and there’s no shade. From that point here we replenish the water, we descend sharply to 200m, plateau for 300m and start climbing up to Fataga for a coffee break.The climb thereafter is a 4km 10% at the start and comes down to 7% ave from 600 to 950m to the Pipeline, the surface is excellent, no wind and great scenery.Water replenish here and descend 300m fast road to Santa Lucia with short climb 3km up into village.From here it’s a 40km loop down to Era de Cardon, fast twisty road and the road drops further down to Aguimes, then we turn back up to our right to Temisas. The wind will be blowing quite strong from your 3 o’clock for an energy sapping 16km back to the top, from there a descent back to Santa Lucia for lunch, our hotel Las Tirajanas is visible above us, 6km away. This final section climbs consistently and steepens up at the end. With final pitch in the last 300m to hotel.The hotel has a heated outdoor pool with steam room and saunas included in the trip. Massages can be prebooked too. 2 nights here.
