Circular enduro route from Ayagaures
Ayagaures is a well-known dam or reservoir in the southern part of Gran Canaria. Frequented by many cyclists of all kinds of modalities, whether XC, road or Gravel. But the reality is that not many riders know enduro routes in this area. The track starts from the dam of Ayagaures itself, which in turn is the lowest point on the route. Which means that we are going to start going up, to end up going down with a good “happy ending”.
In the same way, the route has a cumulative ascent of more than 1200m positive, of which approximately 50% are done carrying the bike. This means that possibly for those who practice enduro with electric bikes they suffer more than usual. There will be some parts (few, we promise it) in which you have to carry your bicycle. The rest of the time you can go up pushing it.
On the other hand, many parts of the route can be cycled without problems, both on tracks and on very little traveled trails. In the short 4 hours that it took, we only met 2 people, even though we went on a “busy” Sunday. The week we did the track it had rained a lot, so there was a lot of curious about the area to visit the waterfalls.
Las Tederas town
This Enduro route passes through the little town of “Las Tederas”, which can only be reached by a long dirt track. The route passes through places that certainly few people have stepped on with incredible views.
If you do the tour after good rains, you will be able to carry water in the small streams through which the track passes. Note that at the end of the route, there is a small technical downhill segment. If you do not see yourself trained, you can go down on foot without problem.
