Going to cylce on Lanzarote? and looking for a rental bike?
Bike Island Lanzarote
Lanzarote is one of the most authentic islands of the Canarias. The local hero César Manrique was an environmentally friendly visionary who prevented local politicians from ruining the landscape with high-rise buildings in the seaside resorts. The low population density caused by the poor agricultural land ensures that Canarian culture is not as strong on Lanzarote as on other islands. Lanzarote is on the east side of the archipelago, and has little green. In recent years, the island has increasingly attracted athletes, including cyclists. Like other eastern islands, Lanzarote has many beaches, which is something that the western islands can only be jealous of.
The landscape on Lanzarote is rather arid, with black sandy beaches. The landscape looks a bit like a windy lunar landscape and is dotted with characteristic white villages.
On Lanzarote many cycling routes are possible, with climbs that will take you through the mysterious, volcanic landscape.
Lanzarote on the road bike
Different routes are possible on the road bike.
The Tabayesco climb is the longest climb on Lanzarote: just over 10 km long. The average slope of 5.5% remains very consistent throughout the climb with occasional slopes up to 8%.
The steepest cycling climb on the island; the Femés climb starts from the southernmost resort of the island, Playa Blanca. The real climbing starts after the Papagayo roundabout. In the last kilometers there are some hairpin bends with more than 15% percentage increase.
Mirador Del Rio
This is the most beautiful climb known from the Ironman Lanzarote. It is a short climb of 3km to a height of about 475m. It is a rugged but beautiful climb, with beautiful views of La Isla Graciosa. This climb can be combined with the de Orzola climb, which is mentioned below.
From Teguise to the highest point on Lanzarote. The climb itself begins a few kilometers after Teguise along the road LZ 10. The road winds up through the picturesque village of Los Valles, facing the north. The highest point of the island is on the Penas del Chache (670m). The Los Valles climb is not exceptionally steep or difficult.
From the most northerly point on the island at Orzola. In the north of Lanzarote lies the small port city of Orzola. The road south of Orzola has a really beautiful climb, one of the best on the island. The climb from Orzola is only about 5 kilometers long, but it can be combined with the Mirador De Rio to make an almost 10 km long climb.
Through the volcanic vineyards, this is one of the best cycling routes of Lanzarote. In the rugged landscape of La Geria there are fertile soils that, together with the mild climate, ensure an excellent wine culture. The landscape is characterized by black soils and the vines are almost buried in protective round holes. The landscape looks like a lunar landscape.
