Vuelta al Teide - Round Teide Cycle Race

Vuelta al Teide - Round Teide Cycle Race

The Vuelta al Teide, a cycling event with more than 700 registered participants from 15 countries, will take place this Saturday 8 May 2021 with the support of the Cabildo de Tenerife in its fourth edition, and which will depart from Puerto de la Cruz at 7.00 a.m. and with an expected arrival in the municipality resident of Los Realejos around 1:00 p.m. 

However, Covid and the closure of some territories have prevented many athletes from traveling to Tenerife. The non-competitive event is the most important on the island and one of the best in the Canary Islands, “mainly due to two reasons, the first is that it crosses the Teide National Park, the second is that it is an interesting incentive for those people, federated and non-federated, who want to participate in a sporting event of this magnitude”, stated the insular director of Sports, Laura Castro. 

Technical director of the race, Andrés Gómez, pointed out that “it is a popular event but one that is very attractive among all cycling fans, both from here and from many other countries, mainly due to the attractiveness of the landscape. through which it circulates that it is unique in the world”, who added that “all security measures, distance, masks, etc. are contemplated, cyclists have to leave at a distance and there will be no public”.
