Arenas Negras

The route starts with a steady warm up climb on tarmac as we cycle through the rugged Chinyero area of the island, site of the last eruption on the island back in 1909. On reaching the Chio recreational area we look to turn off the road and start to ride on the forest roads, initially with a short continuation of our climb on a loose volcanic gravel surface before topping out at around 1650m above sea level and beginning our gradual descent through the Canarian pine forests and volcanic landscapes, but always with some stunning views on hand. Eventually we reach the Arenas Negras area and we are met with a stunning view over the harsh black volcanic landscape with an often snow capped Mount Teide sat majestically in the background. From here we continue our gradual descent before finally needing to make a short climb along a shaded forest track back to our start point and a final road descent to a local cafe where you may purchase food and drinks and take time to enjoy the views over the coast before making the transfer back to the resorts.
