Do the Pedales de Lava in Timanfaya
With the added incentive of crossing the impressive Timanfaya National Park, this MTB route starts at the fishing village of Órzola, in the extreme north of Lanzarote. Cyclists cross the badlands of the Corona volcano, climb to the cliffs of Famara and view the island of La Graciosa from el Río viewpoint, the work of César Manrique. The next stop on this route, known as Pedales de Lava, is la Caleta de Famara where a swim will help face the long cycle which alternates tracks and road before reaching the sports complex at La Santa.
Cycle 100 kilometres to Playa Blanca
After leaving La Santa the great attraction along this route appears: the universe of lava rivers and craters in Timanfaya National Park where the bike slides along volcanic sand which is all left behind in the village of Yaiza where refreshments can be enjoyed. Then it is back to the coast, this time to las Salinas de Janubio (Salt mines). At the end of the route is the tourist resort of Playa Blanca and the back-up vehicle to take you to Papagayo beach: a worthwhile rest after over 100 kilometres on the bike.More information
