In November 2011 we wanted to give it another try. It was very dry and therefore the river which blocked us last time from continuing was gone.
Therefore we stated again in Maspalomas and cycled to the quarry. There we followed the path into the barranco de Fataga. The road was quite bumpy, but it was fun with the mountainbikes. The path starts flat but becomes steeper after a while. After about 600m difference in altitude we had a great view of the underlying barranco. From there the path stayed at one height and we enjoyed cycling through this great nature! You have a wonderful view from up there. After about 3 hours we started the descent to Ayagaures. There we enjoyed the view of the lake and continued to cycle up the road. Before the descent we had a break and enjoyed the view of the path we came down a few minutes ago. Then we started to cycle to road back down to Maspalomas. During this descent you get a great view of Maspalomas and the beach, the lighthouse and the surrounding buildings.
This is a really great cycling tour we can recommend to everybody who wants to enjoy the great landscape of Gran Canaria!
