An island to enjoy by bike
The main advantages of training in Fuerteventura include the ideal cycling conditions due to the minimal traffic and well kept roads.
Cycle routes vary from 2-6 hours and 50-160 kilometres, with altitude differences of 600-1600 metres.
The annual temperature range of 18-25 ⁰C means that Fuerteventura has the perfect climate for training.
If you prefer mountain biking or fat biking your options on Fuerteventura include volcanic landscapes in the centre of the island, dunes in the north and mountain ranges on the southwest coast, where you can explore exciting tracks by bike.
The modern bike centre at Playitas Resort has more than 200 top brand bikes and the latest models on the market in a range of sizes so you don’t need to travel with your bike.
You’ll find road bikes, mountain bikes, fat bikes, recreational bikes and kids’ bikes. We recommend booking in advance. If you use special cycling shoes and pedals, bring them with you, as we can’t guarantee our pedals will be compatible with your shoes.
At our Bike Centre we have route information and maps available and we run guided group rides every week.
Our workshop staff will give you helpful advice and individual service.
Opening hours. Everyday 08.00 - 13.00 / 15.00 - 18.00
