Lanzarote is increasing in popularity as a destination for cyclists, not just for holidays but for warm winter training sessions too. We love cycling around the island, it’s a great way to enjoy the landscape, as well as keeping fit. Our roads are generally in excellent condition without heavy traffic, and Lanzarote offers some interesting challenges such as the 180 km Ironman course to satisfy top athletes as well as novices.
For mountain bike enthusiasts, there is also a 205 km route signposted around the island of Lanzarote.
If you don’t want to pack your bike, then it’s easy to hire one locally, we recommend BH ProAction in Puerto del Carmen for professional bike hire in Lanzarote.
We’ll continue to add more rides to this list as we write them up, just click the title for more information on each individual ride.
One of our favourite circular bike routes in Lanzarote is the loop through the Timanfaya National Park and the wine region of La Geria. The route from the centre of Yaiza is 31km long, we’ve ridden this in both directions and don’t have a favourite way round they are both equally as good.
There’s a beautiful coast road in the North of Lanzarote, our suggested route is approximately 30 km taking in seaside villages, two visitor attractions and stunning beaches.
This route is 30km, it’s fairly flat with a few ups and downs but nothing too serious and passes the Salinas de Janubio, Los Hervideros and Charco de Los Clicos which are all free to enter, so you can stop to go sight seeing too!
There are six connecting mountain bike routes in Lanzarote with varying degree of difficulty and terrain. The route has been designed so that a rider could complete the circuit within a week’s holiday, staying in a different location each night.
