Beautiful racing bike tours through rugged nature and on quiet roads
Fuerteventura is very suitable for a short or longer cycling holiday. The island may not be as well known as for example Mallorca, Lanzarote or Tenerife, but it is the least densely populated of all (7 large) Canary Islands, so you can make beautiful trips on often quiet, good roads.
Because of the very favourable climate, the temperature varies between 20 – 30 degrees throughout the year and it almost never rains, you can actually ride your bike perfectly every day.
Best cycling opportunities
The 4 larger tourist cities of Fuerteventura are located all the way north, on the east coast and all the way south. The middle and west of the island are very sparsely populated and there you will also find the most beautiful nature. The central Betancuria massif runs like a mountain ridge from north to south and dominates a large part of the middle of the island. Here you will not only find beautiful, quiet mountain roads that reach up to about 600 m, towards the west coast there are a number of quiet dead-end roads that only lead to a small village on the coast (and therefore sea level).
So plenty of opportunities to show your climbing skills to your friends.
Race biking on Fuerteventura: pure enjoyment on quiet roads

Route suggestions for racing bike tours
Villa Vital Fuerteventura is very centrally located on the island. From here you can explore the whole island by day trips.
We have about 10 cycling routes available for our guests. Routes varying from 30 to 130 kilometres. We have composed and explored the routes ourselves. The main requirements for this were:
as much as possible quiet roads
a lot of variation
Very soon (Jan / Feb 2021) we will make these road cycling routes available to everyone here.
Racing bike rental
In most touristic places you can rent racing bikes. However, the quality may vary. Do not always be guided by the cheapest options. Quality costs money.
A selection of road bike rental companies, with which we ourselves have good experience, can be found via this link:
“You are clearly in the best place for cycling on the road. And the tour to Betancuria is indeed beautiful.”
Hans & Liesbeth (NL), owners www.cyclingspain.comFebruary 2020
“A week’s training in January with temperatures of around 20 degrees! Seven days of cycling with “localo” Pascal as your guide who knows how to find all the climbs. Breakfast and dinner at Villa Vital, lunch at nice spots along the way! We will definitely come back here! Villa Vital is a good place to be!!”
Jan & Nely Hos (NL)February 2020, racing bike package
“Very pleasant stay, nice room, good breakfast and dinner. Beautiful courtyard with swimming pool, great for resting. Ideal location as a base for racing bike rides on the super-quiet central part of the island. Lots of support by Sabine and Pascal for bike rentals and routes”.
