Mount Teide

Tenerife  is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands (2,034 square kilometers) in size, however, it offers a vast network of roads and bike paths that are excellent for road and off road cycling. The dormant, towering and beautiful volcano, Mount Teide, that defines Tenerife offers distinct riding experiences depending on which side of the mountain you are located. The south side  offers a drier and more desolate scenery, which in itself is very interesting, whilst the north side of the mountain is green and lush with spectacular mountain and sea views.

Tenerife is regarded as a cyclist’s paradise offering its own distinct and unique micro climates, stunning scenery and a strong biking culture. This is one place that should definitely be on your list of places to visit.
