Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Safe, relaxed downhill bike rides since 1999, ride with us 22 miles without pedalling from the skirts of Mount Teide, 7300 ft high, to the coast of Los Cristianos. Enjoy the real Tenerife where tourist buses dont reach, sample local "Tapas" and discover the joy of riding without effort. Any age can do it, just try! We also rent bikes with free hotel delivery and will advise you on local points of interest.

“What an experience.............”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

This was the most amazing trip, especially great if you have teenagers to occupy - ours loved it. Attention to detail was second to none,nothing was too much trouble, we felt totally safe the whole time and the views were just breath taking. You see so much more this way. We had lots of little stops on the way down to enjoy the breath taking scenery and went through villages and little side roads that you just wouldn't see in a car or coach. Tomas and co were very entertaining and the tapas and drinks were a lovely touch as were our celebratory drinks at the end.

“We didn't get picked up”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I have been looking forward to this tour. We liked the idea of seeing the vulcano from a bike and not a car/bus. Therefore we didn't include Teide in our trip around Tenerife in the car we rented. I would like to tell you about the biking tour, sights, lunch etc. but the fact is we never got picked up from our hotel. We had a long email exchange confirming day and hotel where we were told we would be picked up outside the hotel reception at 1pm. We were ready 10 min before waiting outside the hotel. At 2pm we didn't want to wait any longer. So we can't really say anything positive about the tour except it sounded very interesting.

“Great day out!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Did this trip in January with my sister and loved it so I thought I'd take my teenage son this time. Glad I did - he loved it too! Pretty much the same day as described elsewhere pick up at hotel, stop en route at Vilaflor, views of Teide etc. Tomas, Diego and Mauricio were great hosts and guides making sure everyone was comfortable and safe and enjoying the ride. Picnic was lovely - and plenty of it! The route down the mountain and finish point this time was different than that in January which was a bonus for me!! Would really recommend this - it's a bit different to the usual trips on offer and the views are breathtaking!! Fab! Cheers guys - will be back in January!

“3 1/2 stars if i could - guides should start the trip later & have thier lunch!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

My wife booked the trip and i wasnt happy when she said it was 22miles until she said it was all downhill. We got picked up on time and headed towards the top of the volcano. we stopped not far from the top which turned out to be so the guys could get some food as "its the only time they can eat" which i thought well start the trip later it wouldnt be an issue as obv we hadnt paid to watch them eat. when we got back on the road they took us to a part of the national park and showed us the landscape took a few pictures etc, we then got back in the car to the start of our downhill trek.
We got given a highvis, a pair of cycling gloves(freshly washed thankgod) and a helmet. They ran through the signals they woud be using and the procedures and then we set off. We stopped off every so often for a break and pictures and about half way down we stopped for a "picnic" which was abit underwhelming. We went down some steep roads and some roads to pick up speed and its a shame the whole trip wasnt as fun as the riding bit. i wuld do it again but would hope the niggley things they would sort out

“Fantastic afternoon!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We went on this trip during our holiday - we were picked up from our hotel in a mini bus and driven up the volcano - the staff were very helpful and friendly and during the drive and gave us useful facts and pointed out things. We stopped at a cafe whilst the instructors had lunch (wasn't an issue, but think perhaps they should shift the pick up time back by half an hour and have lunch before collecting people!) we were driven up to view point where we had opportunity to take photos and admire the view. We were then taken to the starting point where we were kitted up - helmet, gloves and high vis vest and were given instructions and commands to stay safe. We headed off - a leader in front on a bike and a mini bus following down with spare bikes, they were in walkie talkie contact and the van following - stopped traffic at crossings so we didn't have to stop- very well run - cycled in pairs unless given the command to go in single file for cars to pass and stopped every 5 miles or so where we were given drinks and could take photos. Half way down they produced some nibbles - olives, cheeses, bread, etc in a nice shady spot. We went through villages and picked up some impressive speeds - at the bottom for the last 100 yards they made it a race with a checked flag - more refreshments given at the end (including a bottle of bubbly opened) and then driven back to our hotel. Nice little touch they did a experiment with empty plastic bottles to show the effects of the pressure - a fantastic experience and afternoon and would defiantly recommend - very little peddling required and seeing lots more of Tenerife.
