The tour is an initiative of the Napa bike shop. It is the first monthly route for this type of bicycle with departure from Guanarteme, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Farm roads by Gravel Bike
First of all, you will cross the city by the bike lane that passes through Paseo de Chil street. Later you will arrive at the Guiniguada ravine, a route that runs along a wide dirt track and is very popular among locals for mountain biking. After finishing this track, you will arrive at the well-known Jardín Canario. Then we will continue riding on asphalt passing La Calzada. Then you reach the entrance of a dirt track that runs through the Santa Brígida ravine to a point that you must leave it to go by road to La Gavia, in Telde. This route also passes through the town of Santa Brígida and the Las Goteras ravine.
Once you leave La Gavia behind, a slope begins and becomes hard on the bike due to its inclination. Therefore, you will miss softer shifts to do the slope of El Montañón Negro, over the town of San Mateo. At this point, you could link the route to any other side (at this point you will have done about 48km). We take the opportunity here to take a break in the town of San Mateo and eat a good sandwich. Here you can decide the strength you have left.
Download the track of the route
Then you can download the track of the route in .gpx format so that you can follow it on your own without getting lost. If you don’t know how to download it and follow it from your navigator or smartphone, we’ll explain it to you here. If you want to support us so that we continue to create content for you about Gran Canaria, we will appreciate if you purchase one of our tracks, either to enjoy incredible routes or as a donation.
The track that we share here continues to Firgas (75km at this point) on a very nice road that passes through Teror. To complete the circle (about 100 km) it would be necessary to return to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria by bike, passing through Arucas. As you can see below, the track departs from Vegueta, goes through the Guanarteme neighborhood (Napa bike store) and returns to Vegueta to go to the Guiniguada ravine. Therefore, you can skip this part since it is all by city.
