An obligatory mountain pass for all cyclists visiting the island of Gran Canaria.

We must pay special attention to the development we carry on our bike so as not to put our foot down, as the climb is terrifying


The effort level coefficient given by the canarian pass was 504, well above the 326 and 328 of the Angliru and Zoncolan or the 193 of the Tourmalet.


It is a real colossus of some 30 km and 2,000 metres of accumulated height gain, with gradients of around 20%

Ciclismo a fondo

Gran Canaria is that island of good weather. It was tailor-made for sportsmen and women.

It is the winter destination of a thousand professional teams from all over Europe. And for anyone who wants to do sport in one of the diverse landscapes of the island's intricate orography.

Patronato de Turismo de Gran Canaria

Here the routes, both mountain and road, are characterised by the almost total absence of plains and the constant presence of volcanic stones.

Great tradition in the organisation of events, in the reception of top-level sports entities and European sports figures.
