Tour of Gran Canaria Stage 4 Overview

Ride 4 Agaete 70km 1350m. Technically this is one long descent down to Agaete, but there’s 2 x 500m climbs to get over. We repeat the route to up to Ayacata max 1360m from yesterday and then down the 12km to Tejeda at 1030m, this could be nippy at this time of the morning as the sun is still on the other side of the mountains so if you’ve got it ,wear it.We get together again in Tejeda, replenish and start the second of today’s climbs all the way to Artenara and on above at 1340m at 38km into this day’s work.Road surface is perfect to here and now we descend through very different scenery that we’ve become used to so far this week, lots of farmland, sheep, cows and pine forests and we probably won’t see another cyclist for another 2 days. Road surface is good but can have some ridged patches. Once we clear Fajajesto, you can start to see Galdar and Agaete and you get the feeling you’ve come some way.There’s some stunning views over to Tenerife and we’ll usually catch the Fred Olsen ferry making its white line trip across the blue sea from Tenerife to Agaete. The last 9km is an all out sprint to the finish at the entrance to Agaete, the road is perfect twisting with dips and pitches with a tail wind and usually zero traffic. We have our lunch in the harbour before riding to our hotel, 2km and checking to Roca Negra 4*The coast below the hotel has some natural sea pools, so it’s a terrific experience to swim there in the relative calm only metres from 3m high raging waves, something not to be missed.
