Lanzarote is well renowned for its great variety of biking routes both on and off road. Wherever you go you will be rewarded with stunning views of both the dramatic volcanic landscape and beautiful ocean with magnificent towering cliffs.
For cyclists, Lanzarote is a fantastic location for riding you bike. The roads are smooth and the weather dry. Over the years many famous cyclists have based themselves at Club La Santa for their winter warm weather training – the Sports Bar is worth a visit as the walls are adorned with portraits of past Club La Santa World Champion and Olympic visitors, including Jenson Button, 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.”
