Cycling route in the southwest of Gran Canaria

A cirular cycle route which begins and ends in Mogán
Quite a classic tourist cycle route this circular way along the southwest of Gran Canaria starts and finishes on the golden coast of this round island. The charming harbour of Mogán composes the first 30 kilometres, a cycle on flat terrain which snakes along the coast, among marinas and wonderful beaches before getting to Maspalomas. Now it’s time to find the heart of the island, take the road towards Fataga, which gives a sense of being long and difficult when going by the viewpoint at Degollada de Las Yeguas.
Reaching Ayacata, the peak of the island
The uphill climb along the southwest of Gran Canaria has three milestones: Fataga, San Bartolomé and Ayacata, the peak of the island. In this incredible landscape, with a hamlet and deep ravines, the best thing to do is have a break and try the local cheese before attacking the descent to Las Niñas dam. It’s a route with bends and pine trees which takes us to another spectacular ravine, that of Mogán, which is reached along a road that seems to hang between the cliffs. All that is left is to cycle down to Mogán and have a rest.
