There is one climb that is known for its savageness more than any other on Gran Canaria. The Valley of the Tears, el Valle de los Lagrimas, das Tal der Tränen. Nestled in the western edge of the heart of the island, and with it's base at over 400m above sea level, it is invariably preceded by climbing.
Thereafter the next 12 kilometers include some of the sternest tests this island offers. With several ramps well above 20%, and with a rough asphalt, there will be plenty of time to be under the pitying - or at least curious - gaze of the goats at half way.
Our route starts and finishes at our shop in Maspalomas, so before facing the eponymous test, we will have our legs thoroughly warmed up, and enough camaraderie built up to face down our challenger.
Tears are not gauranteed.
We look forward to having you on our ride!
