A Flat Cycle Training Route in Lanzarote

One of the reasons bike training is so good here in Lanzarote is because of our hills. But sometimes you just want a relatively flat route, where you can grind out a lot of miles, without constantly changing gear.

We’ve selected the perfect route for just such a ride!


As you can see, you can start in either Orzóla in the far north of the island, or Tahiche, roughly in the centre of Lanzarote. You then simply follow the main LZ1 road from one to the other. The total distance is almost exactly 30KM, so with a return to your starting point, it’s a decent 60KM ride, and doing both legs three times, you’ll cover a full Ironman distance.

The tarmac is very smooth, apart from two small sections of less than 1KM total, and for much of it there’s a wide shoulder on the road for cyclists. At the Orzóla end there is a supermarket and at Tahiche there is a German bakery, and both are ideal to stock up on drinks and take on some food. There’s plenty of free parking at either end for your car. Read more »

Don’t Be Afraid To Enter Races In Lanzarote!

One of the very best things about the island of Lanzarote is that there are races almost every weekend. Open water swims, triathlons, extreme events, trail runs, aquathons. We’re a genuinely amazing European sports destination, and whether you live here, visit all the time, or you’re a one off tourist, you can enter any of them.


There are two things that put many people off:

“I’m too slow / unfit / overweight”

As long as you’re healthy enough to do the race, then don’t worry about that. In every event you’ll find a fantastic mixture of serous, sometimes professional, athletes, a middle order of decent athletes, and at the back, the slow or unfit athletes. Nobody minds! And you’ll get the biggest cheer of the day!
