Episode 066: Cycling On Tenerife

A few months ago I was approached by Jet2 Holidays who asked if I would be interested in discovering the joys of cycling in one of their winter destinations in southern Europe. Of course I said yes and had a look at the map. Where would be nice and warm in the middle of February? The Canary Islands seemed the most likely place to deliver good weather so I arranged to travel to Costa Adeje on the island of Tenerife. I hired a bike and headed along the coast and up the hillsโ€ฆ This was a different approach to travelling on two wheels. How did I get on without a tent and four panniers but in a luxury hotel on an unfamiliar bicycle?

  1. I have not listened to your podcasts before, but after listening to this I like it very much. Well done and it sounds like you have a good time with a nice balance of planning and winging it.

What do you think?
