THE ROUTE


A must-do stage through the green midlands of Gran Canaria, starting and finishing in Arucas at the foot of its magnificent church. Transfer by bus from Maspalomas to Arucas where we will start at 9:00 am.

We take direction Cambalud and Buenlugar between the banana plantations bordering the GC-300, to then enter the Barranco de Azuaje by GC-350. At the intersection with GC-75 we turn left towards Moya where the ascent begins between leafy eucalyptus trees towards Fontanales. At this point, after 25 km and almost 1,000 of elevation gain in the legs, is the starting point for the Starter Category, which will have only 53 km and 600 m of accumulated elevation gain ahead, but will also enjoy the countryside of Gran Canaria.

We continue ascending a little more by GC-75 until the junction with GC-702 that we will take to the right and enjoy its wonderful scenery and that will take us to the highest point of the stage at 1. 215 m at Lomo del Palo, there we turn right on a steep descent on GC-221 that takes us to Fagagesto and where we turn right on GC-220 and GC-710 towards Montaña Alta, with a long and gentle descent we will find the junction with GC-700 on the way to El Palmital and Moya where we will regroup. We continue between the ravines to Arucas, lunch and return by bus to Maspalomas.
