On Fuerteventura, drivers are obliged to leave a distance of at least 1.5 m between their car and any cyclists. You will be pleased to find out that people actually stick to this rule 🙂. Here you can cycle without being pushed off the road, even on main roads!
Please note that average cycling speeds will be as follows:
- 23 – 26 km/ h (mixed groups)
- 20 – 23 km/h (ladies)
This may look ‘slow’, but on Fuerteventura the wind is almost always blowing. Because of this your average speed will be somewhat lower than you are used to. Obviously, we will adjust these speeds if the group wants us to do so.
