Cycling in Lanzarote

The island of Lanzarote is one of the Canary Islands located off the coast of West Africa and administered by Spain. It is a popular destination for cyclists due to its warm winters and its incredible volcanic scenery.

Due to the islands prominence with cycling and triathlon it makes the perfect winter break to get a bit of well-earned sun and to keep the training miles ticking along. 


Lanzarote offers a huge variety of accommodation in a few main towns along the south of the Island. Riding from these locations to some of the most famous Lanzarote climbs and routes is achievable as from one side of the island to the other is only 70-kilometres. We offer hotels in the towns of Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca and Puerto Calero.


Costa Teguise

The resort of Costa Teguise is located on the eastern side of Lanzarote, close to the capital and only 10 to 15 minutes by car from the airport. The Aquarium and Aquapark coupled with the lively Pueblo Marinero square where restaurants and shops can be found provides no shortage of things to do for visitors.


Playa Blanca

At the most southerly tip of the island is the relaxed marina of Playa Blanca. It's the perfect place for a quieter and more tranquil holiday in Lanzarote. 


Puerto CAlero

Located to the south-west, Puerto Calero is only a few kilometres from the bustling resort of Puerto del Carmen but it is a world away in atmosphere, and is the perfect place to stay to sample some of the finest bars and restaurants on the island.




Bike highlights

Route highlight

Lanzarote’s terrain is an important reason for its popularity amongst cyclists. There are plenty of flat and undulating roads on the island, but there are also a few climbs to test your legs on too. Two of the best climbs to ride in the region include the Timanfaya (Montañas del Fuego) and Mirador de Haria

Bike difficulty

Difficulty level

The climbing is not too difficult, and the sun shines almost all year. The main thing to be concerned with is the wind. It can be windy anytime of the year which can make the riding more difficult than it looks on paper. The good news is that it's not usually windy for long! 

Bike best times

Best time to go

The weather in Lanzarote is its biggest advantage and the main reason tthe island is popualr with cyclists. You will get good weather throughout the year but, avoid November as it can be wet and try to avoid the busier and hotter months of July and August where temperatures can rise to 40C.
