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.

We went on this excursion yesterday and can honestly say that it was absolutely fantastic. It was very well organised from beginning to end and our guides Martin and Maurice were excellent. Martin was very knowledgable and friendly and gave us very interesting information throughout the excursion. The bikes were super, very comfortable indeed. I would recommend this as a great way to see the mountains of tenerife, they even showed us the teide and lava flows. They even gave us nibbles half way down. All in all this is an excursion that I wouldn't have missed for the world and recommend it to all ages.

We booked this trip while on holiday Jan 2014. They picked us up from our hotel as planned (on time).
All safety equipment was supplied, the organisation of the team and planned route were excellent. As other people have said if you can ride a bike you can do this, its all downhill so no effort is required. The sights and views you get on the way down are what its all about, I have been up teide many times but I got more out of this than all the other trips put together.
We look forward to doing this again on our next visit to Tenerife.

We were collected from outside our hotel (around 20 minutes late) in Los Cristianos at 1pm, were introduced briefly to the others on the excursion with us before heading up towards the top of the mountain. After about an hour we stopped at a small village restaurant where we were told we would wait for the arrival of the other group. This was around a 30 minute wait and I highly recommend the 'lentejas' served there as it was enjoyed by all six of our group. From there we headed upwards again before reaching our start point.

We were briefed on safety procedures and given helmets, hi vis jackets and gloves before commencing downhill at a relaxed pace. As this journey was entirely downhill, it only required about one minute's worth of pedalling in the entire trip so is definitely possible for anyone capable of riding a bicycle. We stopped every now and then to take pictures and to rehydrate before reaching the end of our journey by around 6.30 pm. From here we were then all dropped back at our hotels.

In all the group comprised of around 15 people, all of different ages and fitness levels. Although most of the group very rarely cycled, there were a few that did so on a regular basis and everyone left with smiles on their faces.

One tip: on their website, they mention that they provide a small picnic. This is only comprised of bread, olives, cheese and local dip and should not be relied upon as 'lunch' but rather as a small afternoon snack - I advise to either eat before, or better yet try some of the lentejas at the restaurant they stop at.

Fabulous trip - would definitely recommend to families and couples. You get to go off the main roads and through villages on the way down and see things you would not normally make time for on a bus trip. A quick stop off for tapas wine/ water is a very nice snack half way down.
Must take a coat whilst your at the top and then take layers off as you head towards the beach.
Good value for money.
