In the last 10 years Gran Canaria has become Europe's top winter cycling destination.
The fantastic roads running up the Mogan, Arguineguín and Fataga Valleys provide an excellent challenge for those who want a more active holiday.
Gran Canaria’s topography goes from sea level to mountain within five minutes of riding. The combination of competition-class roads and year round favourable weather has meant that many of Europe’s top professional cycling teams are now using the island as a training base.
For the non-professional rider, bike hire on Gran Canaria is well catered for by companies such as Free Motion and Cycle Gran Canaria who both provide the latest in high-performance bikes. Both companies also offer bike tours at all levels of fitness and terrains from mountain biking to road racing.
