It’s a short and easy ride to test bikes and gear for the biggest things to come. The route goes on gravel roads, sandy single tracks and a final walk on the beach.

Caleta de Sebo is the only inhabited town on the island, it’s a lively harbour with great seafood restaurants and a free campsite on the beach. Pedro Barba is a ghost town made of white houses and cactus gardens.

La Concha is a gorgeous sandy beach made of crushed shells. Montagña Amarilla is another beautiful beach sheltered under a yellow volcano.

Camp: free camping area on the beach next to town (register here).

Accommodation: Some AirBnB and the small hotel Pension Enriqueta.

Resupply: Caleta de Sebo is the only inhabited town on the island and the only place where you can buy water and food.

Getting here: from Lanzarote airport it’s 40km ride (extra track in Komoot) and 30min ferry from Orzola (timetable and information in Ferries).
