✔ Info to take into account before making the route
As it is a long route, it is important that you bring enough money and/or food and water to complete it without any problem. It is perfect for cyclists in good physical shape or for electric bikes, but on hot days it can be hard due to so much climbing. As we told you, it is not excessively difficult, although it goes through some descents of the Gran Canaria cup. The perfect bike to do the tour would be a full suspension All Mountain bike with 14 cm of travel.
