The Tour of Gran Canaria is 6 day guided & supported epic road trip all round the mountainous island of Gran Canaria. We stay in luxurious hotels right across the island, starting from the hot and arid south, to the cool forests in the interior, then moving down to the windy north west coast, before making our way down the spine of the west coast, crossing 3 weather zones to arrive back in the south, a last valiant effort takes back up to the centre almost to the top, before we descend again to the south and our last night with a big party!
Gran Canaria has always been a pro cycling destination, old photos of Merckx, Indurain & Pantani adorn some of the old cyclists restaurants,now again with Saxobank Tinkoff, Cannondale, IAM and many others, the island has a second birth in the modern times. The Govt has responded positively by resurfacing nearly all of the roads to F1 quality, opening new tunnels to syphon of the majority of the traffic along the coast roads. The climbs are still long and steep but consistent and also with plateaus so one can recover, repare and go again.
All the hotels are bike friendly and the local traffic are resoundingly polite and shout encouragement to you, no doubt some of them are reliving past glory days, because the typical Canarian man or woman will have done some sport and all will have respect for you in facing their mountains!
The Tour of Gran Canaria is the only supported tour of the complete island. Our support car has all you need, water, energy drinks, bananas, dried fruit and tasty treats, plus spare wheels, tubes, First Aid kits, walkie talkies for the staff so we are always in contact, and we know where you are at all times!!
Cycle Gran Canaria is based here all year round, there’s nothing we don’t know and nothing we can’t make happen ( within reason!), we can adapt quickly to any event, that’s what makes us the best most secure option for the wonderful people who every year put their trust with us to deliver a great challenging but fully supported tour!
We take our cue from what type of riders we have had over the last 7 years. Usually over 30 and not older than 70, yes really!, Sportive riders, professional people who do other sports like running, swimming etc.
Above all you are seeking a good challenge, but you like the support car being as assurance and you like a nice hotel with a nice glass or wine with like minded people. A sense of camaraderie develops during the week, and there’s never any pressure on people to ride faster, but be aware the support car is there for a purpose so don’t ride yourself into the ground on day 3, that’s not clever!
If you insist on bringing your own bike, you must make sure it’s well serviced and everything functions like it should!
Approx 30% of our riders are repeat clients, and that’s good for us and good for you!
