1200m above sea level. This is the highest point I reached on my bike trips on Gran Canaria this summer. High enough to catch a view over to Tenerife with Mt. Teide. (far in the back of the image)
And high enough to reach another climatic zone. It became green up there.
Imagine the fun riding it all back down to sea level.
This trip was from Maspalomas up to Parque Nublo. Roque Nublo almost marks the center of the island of Gran Canaria. As the island has 4 different climatic zones (sea level north and south, mountain area north and south), the goal was to go up to Nublo national park and see a different climatic zone.
The photo was taken on the way back along canyon walls, always the magnificient ocean view ahead.
What an awesome place to be. A short but steep trip uo to Arco del Coronadero. Another early morning start to climb uphill before the heat kicks in.
Vacation time! Another bike ride in perfect conditions. Short 42km trip to the Ayagaures reservoirs. The short round trip to get used to the conditions on Gran Canaria.
This bikeride was the first time I rode a modern era mountainbike. First time 29er, first time 2×11 drive train, first time air fork, first time short stem and wide handle bar. And I liked it!
Did a 40km ride to Ayagaures and back. In a magnificent scenery while the sun was climbing higher. Truly a magical atmosphere.
Riding a bike through the canyons of Cran Canaria was a thing I had planned for a while. The mixture of summer/beach life and activity is a goal for every vacation and this island seems perfect for that.
I finally managed to visit this beautiful tarn. A perfect halfway break on my bike ride along the Rennsteig from and to Oberhof.
Upper Saale valley as original as it was before the well known cascade of dams were built. Beautiful nature together with Water mills give an idea how the whole area must have been looked in the past.
Ziemestalbrücke. A stunning piece of engineering, built in 1895. Hasn’t seen any train since 20 years.
