Our original plan was to book a Jeep trip to Teide but while walking down the beach we stopped at a small place that was advertising different attractions in Tenerife. Bike trip down the volcano sounded really cool and I am so happy we decided to go with this option! We have been picked up from outside our hotel by a friendly guy Thomas who drove us up the mountain and explained us bits and pieces about the island, agriculture, plants, etc. We stopped in a small village to catch up with the rest of our group and have some drink and food before going further up. After another short drive via National Park we reached our destination where the bike adventure started ;) Thomas and his colleagues gave all of us the safety tips, explained the rules, provided the equipment and we were ready to go! It is advisable to have some warm clothes with you (if you do not have they guys can provide you with jackets, leggings) as it is quite chilly while speeding down on a bike! The whole journey is breathtaking! The views are purely amazing while going down the winding roads. And the speed!!!! You can feel like flying! The instructors look after you really well, they signal when the car is coming, sometimes they blocked the road from the cars to let us go. Somewhere in the middle of the trip we stopped in a picturesque village for a picnic ;) it was a really good fun! we were given some food nibbles like olives, goat cheese and yellow beans (not sure of the name) plus delicious local produce : white wine. and again down the road...more beauty spots to see :) we finished in Los Christianos with a final race (there was even a checkboard flag!) and a bottle of champane to celebrate the trip! I do not have enough words to describe how lovely was the whole experience and i would like to thank Thomas and his work mates for giving me the best day in Tenerife. I will definitely be back to do it again!!!
