Tour overview

TERRIFIC TRAINING IN TENERIFE

It will be a week with the perfect mix of fantastic riding, fun and relaxing on Tenerife! The same way the pros do it.

We will always ride as a group on the rolling terrain along the coast and as individuals or small groups on climbs. If you wish, you can even test your own and each other’s limits on the Teide Volcano climb. Our routes will be 4-5 hours long on most days but don’t worry, everyone will enjoy the ride in their own capacity and we will regroup whenever necessary along the way to keep us together. In this camp we will work as a team, we’ll support each other during the rides and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy! We will also hang out after each day of riding, sharing stories and bonding a bit more together. 

All cyclists interested in learning more about riding technique, training, and nutrition will have numerous opportunities to consult our professional riders and staff even while enjoying a drink by the pool or on the beach! Sounds ideal does it?

Tour destination

Tenerife

Tenerife is a thousand-experiences island. Thanks to its mild climate and vast array of activities available on the largest of the Canary Islands, there are a thousand things to do at any time of year. Spend the day at the beach, Ride along one of the trails that wind up incredible roads, discovering impressive volcanoes and otherworldly landscapes, as well as striking ravines and cliffs. Spend an evening in good company gazing at the endless stars, or make your dream of seeing dolphins and whales swimming in the wild a reality... WOW!

  • Weather

    Tenerife has a very warm, Mediterranean climate and 365 days of sunshine! Its geographical location means that Tenerife enjoys wonderfully long days all year round, with the sun rising at around 7:30 am and setting at 6:30 pm in winter, and rising at 7:00 am and setting at 8:30 pm in summer.

  • Terrain

    The island is dominated by Mount Teide, a volcano that stands 12,198 feet (3,718 metres) tall and is the highest mountain in the Spanish territories. Many resorts on the island (and even the other Canary Islands) have spectacular views of this massive peak.

  • Culture

    Tenerife is surrounded by Spanish and Canarian culture, with the Spanish way of life taking precedence in the island's quaint villages, architecture that is typically Spanish, and a festival lineup that comes directly from Spain. The Sabandeno Festival in La Laguna is a full-on celebration of Canarian culture.
