Our favorite tour as “warm up” and getting to know each other. Even the locals like to start their downhills from the starting point at 2000 m altitude down to the sea in the sunny south of Tenerife. After the shuttle up, we start with a short uphill to warm up and acclimatize to the thinner air, and we will reach the “Retamares” route. In the first sections we improve our cornering skills on wide, partly eroded slopes, where you have to make the right “choice of line”. Afterwards we continue descending through loose lava gravel and steep descends before a short “carrying passage” invites to rest.Our strength and focus will be tested by 3 long and challenging singletrails, “Pipeline”, “Rockgarden” and “ Eagle Pass”, all the way down to the beach of Las Americas. Strength and endurance are required on this day and is a good preparation for the next ones. Once at the beach we can jump in the water for a cool down. Afterwards we will have lunch and some downtime to chill, then initiate the surf session. Depending on our levels of preparation we will create a few small groups to enjoy the water and the swell on our own pace. Late afternoon return to our headquarters for dinner and overnight accommodation. Difficulty S0 – S1 with S2 sections.
After a short uphill to warm up, we get used to the loose and rocky surface of different volcanic rocks on the “Vilaflor Loop“ in a fantastic landscape. On the wide forest road with a slight slope we strengthen the correct cornering, difficult braking manoeuvres and steep descents. Never forget the saying “speed means safety” and let’s bring some fun to the ride. Once we find confidence in the bike and our own riding skills, we can deal with the “Teatime“ Trail. A technical and varied singletrail, which again demands all abilities on some key points, but it is also rewarding with a lot of biking pleasures. After refreshments in a local bar, we rock the local bike park “Los Cardones” with shaped curves, doubles and Northshores before cruising down to the beach of El Medano . After lunch we will head back to the Medano beach for the surf session. It’s the perfect time to clean some of the dust from the trail and use some different muscles for a change. Difficulty S0 – S1 with S2 sections. Afterwards return to the house for overnight accommodation.
Today we will ride on the historic pilgrim trails of the canaries natives. The so– called “Camino Reales” consist of natural paving stones, nature stone walls, rough passages on solid rock plateaus and loose volcanic gravel and offer a lot of variety with technical challenges. In this steep natural terrain we will learn to maintain the concentration and ensure a “good line choice”.Trails like “El Guanche”, “El Roque”, “Sentinel” and “Te Quiero” or “Aldea Blanca” will be tiring our arms and definitely using our bikes’ suspensions. From the starting point at 1600m we cycle down to the picturesque bay of Costa del Silencio into a “Chiringuito” to enjoy the best Mojito of the island and to swim in the Atlantic.
After lunch the shuttle will pick us up and take us back to the house. We will have an afternoon to relax by the pool. Because late afternoon will experience one of Tenerife’s best feature, included in the trip cost package. We will head to the Parque Nacional del Teide to do some sky watching . The park is an out of this world natural reservation with its martian look and one of the clearest skies one can find in the world. There is no surprise that the biggest telescopes in the world, “Gran Telescopio Canarias”, is here on the neighbor island of La Palma. Our very own astronomy-expert will be eager to help you learn your way around the night sky: casual, relaxing stargazing, naming the constellations, how to use the star charts. Late afternoon return to the house for overnight accommodation. Difficulty S1 – S2+.
This is the day of the best singletrails of the South in one endless Enduro tour. Today we ride through nice shaped curves and wallrides, train ourselves in small jumps and drops of Northshore elements and explore new Caminos Reales. And all this on constantly changing surfaces and landscapes. But a good tour also includes the numerous, short and steep uphills which particularly demands our fitness and endurance. There is almost “Bike Park” feeling on the partially shaped downhill tracks of the Locals. The high percentage on off-road trails as “Area61“, “Flowtrail“, “Blackwood“, “T-Line“, “Altavista Caminos“ and “Camel Ride“ lets you experience the greatest flow and fun factor. From the starting point above Vilaflor we ride almost exclusively on trails to the South and as a grand finale we cruise on the “Coast Trail” to the beach of Las Galletas. For the afternoon we return to the beach for our last surf day. It’s a good time to see what we’ve learned and enjoy the waves. Return home for overnight accommodation. Difficulty S1 – S2 with S3 sections.
Today is the highlight of our bike week and the absolute Epic Ride of the island as a reward for the effort of the last few days. A continuous descent on off-road tracks from the solar observatory at 2330m, down to the south. The unique scenery of the Teide-National Park does the rest. From the highest possible starting point for a bike tour on Tenerife we leave the Teide behind us and cycle down to the sea. Demanding dirt roads and technical singletracks will be challenging our endurance and concentration. An Enduro tour with “carrying passage” through a “barranco” and varied landscape. The highlight of the day is the never ending “Gambler” Trail! We continue with cruising to El Medano on „Desierto“ Trails before we can recover at a beach bar and stretch our legs after more than 5 hours tour. Return to the house for overnight accommodation. Difficulty S1 – S2.
Starting very early in the morning we will hike about 3 hours on El Teide Volcano, 3718m, the highest peak in Spain. Our reward will be an amazing sunrise over the neighbor islands and the Atlantic. This is not a very difficult route and the hike through the volcanic rock will transpose us in a different world. The perfect day to channel our energy to get a new perspective over the island. In case the weather forecast looks cloudy, than we will do an amazing boat trip at Los Gigantes to check the giant rock formations that rise from the sea to a height of 500-800 meters and for a dolphins, or even whale watching experience in the marine reservation. Prepare to spend around 30 euro for the boat trip. Return to the house for overnight accommodation.
Transfer to the airport. Time to say goodbye and think about our next ShredMind adventure.
