Tour of Gran Canaria Road Bike
By: Richard Balmford, Hampshire, UK
I Most enjoyed; challenging but achievable riding, and the fact that it involved a round tour rather the rides from a fixed base. In this instance I picked a trip which matched a fixed week, the KE trip looked exciting, provided good information, and the staff were very helpful.

The accommodation was fabulous, with beautiful rooms, vast quantities of varied food, swimming pools and friendly staff. We were able to keep our bikes in our rooms. The cycling in Gran Canaria is wonderful, with stunning scenery, great climbs and descents and very good road surfaces. The route was well planned and allowed for extensions on a couple of days when things were going well. Weather fabulous! Don't expect to loose weight though - the food is too plentiful and too good! In 6 days we cycled all over the island - can't recommend this trip highly enough.
Our guides Ray and Maria were fantastic. We were looked after really well, and they organised excellent bikes for us all. Ray was very professional and safety conscious, but also managed to be encouraging and hilarious. Maria drove the support van and always seemed to be around when most needed. They made a fantastic team and helped turn an excellent holiday into a truly memorable one.
This trip was brilliant. A superb way to kick start the season's training. Great cycling and great fun. The fantastic cycling in lovely scenery on good roads in superb weather with great companions and brilliant guides.
