Cycle Gran Canariawww.cyclegrancanaria.comThis was the same trip as Garmin Days 1 but with some exploring down new trails that were made as fireroads do facilitate the emergency services. MTB here is still in it's infancy with everyone banging around the same trails or getting shuttle transport to various trailheads. This can be a pain as well as expensive. The idea here is to construct loops without the use of shuttles and thereby cut the traffic on the roads,and obviously give more riding time. The island is perfect for long distance rides, if only some of the sections linked up. The new trails are unmarked and don't even appear on GE much less on any map. E.g. I found one here that split in 3 and headed off east, west and south, naturally with my luck I chose the cul de sac, still that's next Sunday's ride sorted.Ride available for clients of Cycle Gran Canaria
