Tour of Gran Canaria Stage 5 Overview

Ride 5 Agaete to Mogan.65km 1430m. Ride 5 Agaete to Mogan.65km 1600m.
Today marks the high point of the week in terms of cycling visual stimulation, we have 2 x 700m climbs to get over and both are sharper in profile than anything so far this week and the 2nd is harder than the first.

We leave Agaete and straight onto 16kms of one of the most visually exciting roads you will ever ride, clinging to the back cliffs and winding around the contours that make up this most desolate side of the island.

Once we pass Risco Blanco the road climbs up to the new tunnel, which circumvents the old road and takes us 3.25km deep under the mountains. The riding is safe on a 1m wide cycle track and the tunnel itself is airy, dry and very well lit.

We emerge once again into the sunshine, still 6km from Aldea de San Nicolas at sea level where we replenish our bottles, then continue for 10km up to 700m again at an average of 8/9% to reach the Juice Bar.

From where we drop down steeply through very open landscape to reach Mogan where we have a late lunch.From there it’s getting used to the rise in temps all over again as we race down the last section of very good but a narrow road to our hotel.
