There’s a lot to look forward to on this route, it’s one of my favorites, a typical Sunday ride with everything in it, climbs, descents, technical sections and a tail wind home!, so as a quick run through, we start from the get go on a 11km climb to 460m, another 17km to 951m, long descent with sharp climbs back up to 600m then a descent gradual to sea and coast road home.
Soria is the cycling route with everything; rolling start, long flat 16km (one of the few on the island), 9km climb & 9km descent, head wind, tail wind and always deeply satisfying.
Pico de last Nieves. Uniquely today is zero to hero, we can see our start beneath our feet in the surf of the Atlantic Ocean and our destination above us in the roof of the world at 1951m.
The fantastic roads running up the Mogan, Arguineguín and Fataga Valleys used to be deserted apart from local buses and the odd hire car. Head up there nowadays and it's like you took a wrong turn and bumped into the Tour de France. Gran Canaria is firmly on the road biking map and even has its own Tour of Gran Canaria.
