THE ROUTE


Departure by bus from Maspalomas to Santa Brígida. We start at 9:00 h from Santa Brígida and begin the ascent of the great pass of the day, almost 20 km at an average of 6% to reach 1,700 m altitude practically at the top of the island.

Right there will be the start of the Starter category at the intersection with the GC-150, we descend the GC-600 through pine trees and with the Roque Nublo as a lookout until Ayacata, where we turn left onto the GC-60 that we will not leave until Maspalomas. Before the 39.5 km in Tunte we will make the main refreshment, and then continue downhill to Fataga.

After overcoming Arteara we find the last tack of the day, the Mirador de la Degollada de la Yegüa, a short but intense peak that after its ascent and a brief regrouping will welcome us to Maspalomas.
