We’ve collected some of the best winter riding destinations to keep you happy during the colder months.

What we found in Gran Canaria was way beyond our expectations and we can truly recommend that Island to everyone that likes dry, technical terrain – it’s the perfect winter hideout and training ground (for both mountainbiking as well as road biking). https://www.outsideisfree.ch

Redbull

Located off the West coast of Africa and boasting 325 days of sunshine per year, Gran Canaria is an ideal winter riding location. If you like your riding to be long and epic there’s plenty on offer and lots of unexplored terrain for the adventurous. Some of the terrain demands a high level of fitness, which is great if you love climbing, but for those who are all about the descents, we’d recommend going with a guiding company. The next best option would be to hire a van between friends to do shuttle runs. The south of the island gets the best of the sun, so if you’re after dry and dusty, that’s the place to be. https://www.redbull.com/ie-en/european-winter-mtb-destinations

Ergon-Bike

Gorgeous weather, beautiful mountains, palm trees, sun and sea: Gran Canaria seduces those who are gluttons for punishment. Cycling is no picnic in this training paradise and the reason why MTB World Champion Alban Lakata keeps coming back – and why Ergon editor Volker Laabs does as well. http://www.ergon-bike.com/en/article-gran-canaria.html

Shuttle

We own a van up to 8 passengers plus driver, to shuttle you from corner to corner of the island .

Also we have different trailers to carry your big stuff.

How come on holidays and enjoy!!!!


Go to the web browser and search for flights to Gran Canaria. We recommend this one because it has a pice graphic according our preferences

normally look for a direct flight or the one with less transfer / waiting time

or better arriving / depart times

also look for bike transport prices ( you can find a really cheap flight but carry your bike will duplicate total amount on one company but by other different flight company can be totally different and better) * Spanish air companies prices are between 40-75€/ flight.

prices varies depending the demand to the destination and season , for example, one common city from Germany (Munich) , Italy (Milan), Astria (Vienna) can offer one week flight trip from 70€ to 360€ in the same month. From England (London , Edimburg) is even cheaper starting prices for the complete flights from 45€. Ryanair and Norwegian are offering nice prices for a week holiday from 53€ for December and January 2018/19 in flights to Gran Canaria from Oslo and Stockholm. If you come from Finland prices are not so cheap (170€) but pretty much cheaper to you than for us to go outside from the islands.


When you have approximately which dates are good to fly you need to know where to stay… Our island is pretty much touristic and you will find offers almost in every corner. When our clients ask where to stay we answer what kind of life after rides you are looking for, and here you are

The ones looking for party , beach and live in a tourist city -> South (Playa del Ingles , San Agustin , Meloneras , Arguineguin….)

The Ones more looking for cities there is Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The ones looking more local mood can be South - East (Arinaga , Aguimes , Telde …)

Looking for staying in mountains then Center island is the option (Fataga, San Bartolome de Tirajana , Tejeda, Valsequillo , Santa Brigida , Arucas…. and probably we can find easier a trail that finishes/starts near your accommodation

All the options should be announced in www.booking.com or www.airbnb.com . Do not hesitate to ask us if you have any questions with the place you would like to stay.

The prices vary a lot, especially for the meals and the type of accommodation, but what we recommend is that if your thought is to come and roll trails is that you choose only breakfast or half board because for the lunch you probably are not in your accommodation.

Book your place for your tours with us! We do not have a place for many people, we prefer to be like this and to treat our clients better. So better make the reservation.


When all is planned and dates approaching is time to prepare your stuff & pack your bike .

Pack your bike ! in the next link they will explain you how to https://www.bikeflights.com/pack

Remember bring on a derailleur hanger or any special part your bike should require. We are on an island and any piece that does not have the bike shop could leave you lying in the gutter. For the rest of common spare parts don’t worry , we should find (cables, deraileurs, tires, tubes, grips, saddles…….. )

About riding gear …. whell our temperatures in Cº vary from 22-25 at the coast to 0-15 Cº at the mountains so you can come ride with short gear but will fell a bit cold at the beginning of the day. About shoes there can be little walk sections so if you ask for recommendation we prefer to ride flat pedals because the little walk/push bike sections can be a bit slippery/ un-corfotable with the cleats ( nothing very determinant). Helmet is mandatory but its in your style which one choose open face or full face.

If you plan to ride only one or two days then probably is better to rent a bike in the island , there are a few choices. But also depends in how is your bike but , we think if you ride three days or more bring your bike is much better option.


Holidays!!!! Don’t be late in the airport , attention to traffic problems and the extra time you need to check in. If you have chosen the option that includes airport transfer we will be there waiting you ( remember to send us your flight number) to load your stuff and drive straight to your accommodation.

HERE HOW WE DEFINE SKILLS BY LEVELS

NOVICE

Your dedication to mountain biking has led you to your first handful of rides on real singletrack.
