A holiday mountain biking trip in Fuerteventura
So whilst on holiday in Fuerteventura I managed to sneak in a sneaky mountain biking trip, this was a different type of riding than I’m used to, sand and volcanic rock aren’t that common in the cotswolds!
I did this ride whilst on a relaxing holiday in Fuerteventura, having found a bike tour operator (Volcano bikes), I booked on the advanced tour advertised at 37Km with 600m of climbing and 90% off road for advanced riders. Now I’m not an advanced rider by any stretch of the imagination and in the week before the holiday I had found a tendency to crash a lot, five times in one 20Km ride, even worse they were on the benign stuff. I was unsure how technical this tour would be, after all the island is very rocky with little vegetation, put it this way I wasn’t expecting loam!
