✔ Tips before doing the route
As it is long, it is important that we carry enough money or food / water to complete it. It is perfect for cyclists in good physical shape or for electric bikes, but on hot days it can get tough from so much climb. It does not have excessive difficulty, although it does go through some descents of the Gran Canaria cup. The perfect bike to do the tour would be an All Mountain with full suspension and 14cm of travel.
