THE ROUTE


Introduction stage about 95 km by some of the busiest roads for local cyclists.

Departure at 9:00 h from the Faro de Maspalomas on the GC-500 towards Juan Grande and Vecindario, where we will take the GC-65 that will take us on a slight ascent to the Era del Cardón, there we turn right onto the GC-551 that awaits us with a brutal rocky landscape. We arrive at Agüimes where we will make the first stop for refueling and regrouping. Then we join the GC-550 and climb 9 km along the road to Temisas, the olive kingdom of Gran Canaria.

After a descent we finally reach Santa Lucia where we will have a second stop to eat and drink. Then we all return along the road of Los Cuchillos GC-65 to Vecindario and Maspalomas.
