After that, you will ride an amazing descent to Los Cristianos.

  • Elevation gain: 4,750 feet / 1,450 meters

Day 3: Abades, 56 miles / 90 kilometers

You start again from the Paradise Park Hotel in Los Cristianos and you will ride up and down along the coast to the town of El Poris.

  • Elevation gain: 5,741 feet / 1,750 meters

Day 4: King's Day, 50 miles / 80 kilometers

This is the first real challenge of the week. The first part of the route, you will start with a short and easy climb of eight kilometers and perfect warm up through the banana plantations.

Breathtaking scenery awaits you, probably the most impressive landscapes Tenerife has to offer. After a cafe stop at the mythical Parador Hotel and a photo opportunity with Mount Teide in the background, there is only three kilometers more of climbing before another spectacular descent to Los Cristianos (same as King’s Day).

Location

Tenerife has superior training terrain with climbs to El Teide at 2,350 meters (7,709 feet) that rival the toughest of the Alps (Stevio and Mortirolo). Pro cycling teams such as Sky. Astana, Katusha, Movistar, Lotto, Belkin, etc. have all trained here, and it was on the island´s smooth, sun-baked roads that Team Sky´s Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome sculpted their Tour de France successes.
