Spectacular tour from Tacoronte through the Anaga mountains to the beach Las Teresitas in San Andrès
The tour through the Anaga mountains is really challenging. After the route through the cities at the beginning it goes uphill for a long time. The ascent is steady and challenges our physical condition. But all strains are worth it, because the Anaga mountains are beautiful. In the more humid north of Tenerife, numerous plants and trees thrive. Anaga is a green sea of different plants that one can not get enough of. Already the view from the road at the beginning into the natural landscape is breathtaking and is only topped by the view from above over the area as for example at the Mirador Pico del Inglés. Also, the descent to San Andrés is exhausting, but in a different way. The descent is continuous and we have to be careful not to get too fast in the curves and to keep the control over our bike. Once at the bottom, we can take a rest at Las Teresitas beach and relax our bodies.
If you don't have the courage to ride a normal bike, you can also ride an e-bike.
Beware at the beginning of the route in the villages, there is a lot of traffic here.
Beware of the sharp curves on the descent: do not drive too fast and always keep an eye on the bike and the traffic.
