Winter Cycle Escape to the Canaries
We'd like to add our warmest congratulations to Bradley Wiggins on his brilliant achievement, becoming the first Brit to win the Tour de France and Gold in the Olympics! But did you know that he trained in the Canary Islands for much of the winter months? To celebrate Wiggo's win, we have launched a brand new road cycling holiday in the Canaries. Our Tour de Gran Canaria will take you to this much-prized 'location of choice' for many a pro-cycling team during the winter, due to its exceptional climate and excellent infrastructure. With our first departure on the 1st Nov 2012, our Gran Canaria holiday takes you on a spectacular road cycling circuit of this mountainous island. Bagging the highest point (1951m) on Picos de las Nieves and climbing 'Serenity', a super-smooth 9 km sequence of hairpins, are just two of the highlights. With a KE rating of intermediate and covering 354 km in 6 days, this 100% road-based and fully vehicle-supported holiday is the ideal way to 'get that winning feeling'. You can even wear yellow kit if you like!
