Cycling in Lanzarote is known for the great variety of biking routes both on and off road. With a variety of mountains, smooth roads, dry weather and low traffic, the island is a dream training destination for cyclists.
Wherever you go you will be rewarded with stunning views of the dramatic volcanic landscape and beautiful ocean.
Over the years many notable cyclists have based themselves at Club La Santa for their Winter warm weather training. The Sports Bar is worth a visit to see the walls adorned with portraits of past World Champion and Olympic visitors, including Erik Zabel and Eddy Merckx.
Ben Price says: “First is the great group rides and Bike Weeks offered by Club La Santa to all levels and abilities, providing the same training experiences to amateur or novice cyclists looking to improve their fitness and cycling skills . Secondly, Club La Santa and Lanzarote have become a mecca for Professional Cyclists/Teams to spend the winter months training as the weather is more reliable, warmer and drier than taking a chance in Spain or elsewhere in the Mediterranean. Thirdly there is an amazing bike hire programme, which means you don’t have the hassle, stress or expense of traveling with your own bike – you just need to bring your bike shoes and pedals.”
If you would prefer to go out biking on your own, we are happy to assist you with good advice and can recommend various routes. There is also a handy booklet of local bike routes available in Sports Booking.
