The Canary Islands are much more than sun and sea, this route aims to bring more interest in the archipelago’s ever changing landscape and rich heritage.
GranGuanche takes form while cycling long distances over the continent and exploring the archipelago. The idea is inspired by ultra-cycling races like Transiberica, adventures like Torino Nice Rally, and routes like Montañas Vacías.
The route design is based on local knowledge, the GR131 walking path and established bike races tracks.
Like everybody else, I learned to ride a bike as a kid, and never quit. After many years and countless miles, I am still amazed by the gyroscopic balance given by the spinning wheels, the instant pleasure of moving forward pushing on the pedals, the endless freedom of climbing mountains and crossing the landscape.
