Swedish Second Summer

The Swedish Second Summer continues with us here again in 2017 but this time with 2 dates ( Jan & March) and once we hope to thaw out our guests with some fine sunny weather, great riding and the great visual feast that is Gran Canaria!

We hope to see you again and see new people as well next January for the 5th Cykeltours visit to Gran Canaria.

We stay all week in the wonderful Gloria Palace 4 star with great comfort & style. The south will guarantee us hot sunny rides all week, but be prepared for harder routes chosen specially to get the best out of you!

What’s the Road Riding like on Gran Canaria?

After the first week here, you’ll notice that you have ridden in very different landscapes every day, from arid treeless plains to heavily forested hills and through villages with agricultural settings. So there’s a strong sense that you’ll never ride it all, and that’s for the most part true!

The Island Authorities too have seen the increase in cycling and have maintained all the island’s roads to an F1 standard! With average temp of 22º-24º, and wide blue skies all year round, it makes for the perfect cycling holiday.

The climbs here are steep, but steep with plateau, then climb again, so you’ll see very regularly on your Garmin 7% to 10%, and then not infrequently 12% to 16%, even the odd 22% plus! As opposed to other Canarian destinations, where there’s just long drags of 4, 5 & 6%. So the interval type of riding here, hard easy, hard easy is very good for your aerobic capacity, as well building your climbing muscles and your climbing confidence, basically you’ll never balk at 11% again!
