TENERIFE-What it's really like to climb Mount Teide? A GUIDE

Postby polkadotcycling » Wed Jan 23, 2013 09:30 am

This month's climb guide looks at the longest continous climb in Europe, Mount Teide in Tenerife, the training ground of numerous pro teams including SKY & Liquigas and most recently made famous by Bradley Wiggins. We take a look at what it's like to climb and some useful information on routes etc.

There is nothing like the incredible feeling of summiting a Tour climb with blue skies all around and the sun on your back.

not sure about the climb but we did the coach trip to the top. On the way there were loads of DHers all over the mountain. Theres some pretty mad runs down at the treeline level.

Not my cup of tea to be honest.

We went for the Mountain biking and used Lavavtrax. We did a route called "The Long Way Down" it starts at the cable car station at the base of Teide and desends 2400M over a distance of 70Km into Medano, highly recommend.
