On the other hand, the route covers another part of stone trails in the area of the Azuaje ravine and the mountain of El Picacho.
Circular enduro route Arucas-Firgas
This Enduro bike ride is suitable for any time of the year. Although in the rainy season the mountain of El Picacho is not very recommendable due to the type of mud that is created there. But the rest of the route is perfect to do even in the rain. As for the technical level of the descents, it is high in several areas of the route. The descent of El Picacho is the most difficult of the day. And those of Monagas and Azuaje also require a certain technical level. We advise you to have at least a medium technical and physical level to tackle this excursion.
|Total ascent/descent||1.210 m|
|Estimated duration||4/5 hours|
|Minimum drink||1,5 l|
|Minimum food||800 kcal|
|Provisioning en route||Yes|
|Recommended bike||Enduro/All Mountain|
The ideal bikes to do the descents without problems would be double suspension of at least 120mm. Although it might be advisable to reach up to 160mm in front and behind. For an electric bike the route is also suitable, advising to take the Eco mode so as not to run out of battery. However, this will depend on the battery that your electric bike has.
