Today we want to show you a 32.65km Gravel Bike route that goes from Firgas to Valsendero, passing through the Osorio farm with very green and hidden places. Or along the road of Las Carpinteras, very unknown and little frequented, which gives it a special charm.
Trails, tracks and road. A perfect route in Gravel Bike.
As it is a circular route, you can start it from the point that suits you best. Although we recommend you do it from Firgas or Cruce de los Chorros, where you will find parking easily. It can be done with any MTB or Gravel Bike bike. It has a cumulative positive slope of 957m, and a simple technical level. Apt even to do on a rigid MTB or Gravel bike.
You will hardly find anyone around here. Be careful on rainy days, as the red earth that makes up these roads becomes very slippery when wet.
Like any good route in Gravel bike, at this point you will have to carry the bicycle and climb two small steps of earth and stones. It is also an ideal time to make a stop and eat something. Since it is completely isolated. As you can see in the previous photo, it seems that we have been transported to the island of La Palma for its leafy vegetation. It is one of the greenest parts of Gran Canaria.
If you study the attached track, you will discover that it is not a high rhythm route. Due to the steep ramps. Some of cement, others of earth or stones. Combined with some road and gravel tracks perfect to complete a gravel bike level initiation route.
We recommend you to download the track and save it on your smartphone or Navigator, since they are not that known and not at all obvious if you are not from the area. Enjoy it!
Finally, we present our guides of Gran Canaria. Forget about organizing your trip and let yourself be advised by a local with recommendations of the most authentic places: everything you need to know about the island and places to eat.
