Road Bike Routes arround Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Only the the 10 km long bike lane along the Port of Las Palmas is a flat section – all other road bike routes demand some fitness for climbs of arround 600 meters to the Village of Terror or the Bandama Crater as popular waypoints. The very skilled riders reach the highest mountain Pico de las Nieves with 1950 m in arround 3 hours. There are generally 3 main routes leading out of the city of Las Palmas:
- climb up from old town Vegueta to Tafira
- climb up from west end Guanarteme to Las Torres and Tamaraceite
- leaving the City on the GC-2 highway westwards along the north coast
