The route from Las Palmas to the south by MTB is one of the most mythical routes on the island, since it connects the capital of the island with Maspalomas. One of the most tourist areas of Gran Canaria.
From Las Palmas to the south by MTB
In this case we start the route from Las Palmas to Maspalomas by bike from Firgas, passing through Arucas. We continue along the mountain of Los Giles to reach Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Once in the city, we will travel along the bike lane of the Avenida Marítima (sea avenue) until its end in the sculpture of the Triton of La Laja beach.
At that point we will arrive to Jinámar to connect with the roads that are on the coast of Telde. From here, we will link paths until we reach practically El Goro. Where we will pass near the beautiful beach of Tufia by land.
Then we will cross the Gran Canaria Airport and arrive at El Burrero Beach. Later we will continue advancing between the mills of Arinaga and Juan Grande along dirt tracks and perfect trails for our MTB or Gravel Bike. Finally, in Bahía Feliz, we will continue along more trails and we will be practically in the southern part of the island.
To make the route from Las Palmas to the south by MTB, the ideal is to follow a track. In addition, as it is a long route, we will have sections of road, simple tracks, narrower paths and stony paths. All of them can be walked without problem.

Video from Las Palmas to Maspalomas by mountain bike
Below you will be able to see the video that we have prepared of this route in case you would like to see the type of terrain that we explained you. As we did the tour from Firgas and it is more common to do it from Las Palmas de GC, you can use the same track, but take it already started. Also, you have to keep in mind that normally the wind is heading south. Therefore, the return from the south to the north is usually harder by the wind against. Luckily I had a driver to come back! 🙂
