LOGISTICS

The route requires some planning in stages and resupplies, as it could be a long ride to the next town. Camping is recommended as an enriching experience but only allowed in camping areas. In need of an emergency shelter set up late, strike early and never start fires. Plenty of other accommodation options.

The route start is just a short ride from Lanzarote airport. To fly back home at the end of the route the best option is Tenerife South airport. Take the ferry back to Tenerife los Cristianos, arrange a cardboard bike box in one of the many bike shops in town and take a taxi to the airport, it’s just 20 minutes drive.
