Furthermore, we offer the ability to tailor your vacation according to your preferences and budget, ensuring we unearth the most suitable solution to meet your specific needs.
To secure your desired tour, we highly recommend booking early, particularly for popular tourist destinations with limited accommodation options. The most desirable choices are often reserved for the summer season even before spring arrives. By reserving in advance, you can ensure availability and secure the best options for your travel plans.
The ability to accommodate dietary restrictions depends on their severity and can vary in terms of ease. In Tenerife, vegetarian options are generally easier to find, while locating vegan dishes can pose more challenges, especially in rural areas or smaller towns. It’s important to note that lunch stops often take place at traditional establishments, which may have limitations in fulfilling special requests beyond their standard menu offerings. It’s crucial to consider this aspect when planning your trip.
For Tenerife, the optimal times for cycling tours typically fall in late winter (January) and early spring (March), taking into account the specific tour details. However, it’s important to consider the region’s weather conditions, as summer can also be suitable depending on the area, despite the potential for high temperatures.
As long as you dress appropriately, most tours can still proceed in light rain. It’s important to note that during the summer months, afternoon thunderstorms are common, so it’s advisable to begin the tour early. In case the weather forecast appears unfavorable, we can proactively make adjustments to the tour ahead of time to ensure a smooth experience.
Our tours can be tailored to any bike type, be it road, gravel, or mountain bike. We maintain regular communication with you to pinpoint the ideal conditions for your cycling holidays in Tenerife.
A gravel bike is the most adaptable choice, even if you’re planning a road cycling holiday. It won’t significantly impact your road performance while granting you access to some picturesque backroads that might be in a slightly poorer condition than the primary ones. A gravel bike tends to be more comfortable as well.
In any case, Tenerife is a highly diverse island with something to offer every cyclist. No matter the bike you choose, we will determine the perfect route for you to embark on during your cycling holidays.
