Cycling

 

The Island of Fuerteventura is an undiscovered gem for road cyclists. Good quality road surfaces and generally little traffic provide an almost perfect recipe for the ideal ride - regardless of how far or hard you want to make it.

The routes range from 2 to up to 6 hours with distances between 50 and 160 kilometers. Altitude difference can be between 600m to 1.600 meters. 

The cycle center offers advice on routes and maps are available. There are over 100 Giant bikes of various sizes and types. Bike mechanics are on hand to help bike set ups. It is recommended that you take your own pedals.

MTB;
The points of interest on the island (the volcanic region in the interior, the dunes to the north and south, the mountain ranges of the central west coast, etc.) make for sensational bike tours that offer everything one could ask for.

Road;
There is very little traffic on most roads, and the highway system is considered to be the most extensive in the Canaries. None of the tours involves complex navigation through towns. Roads are numbered and are posted with kilometer markers, and intersections have clear directional signs

Comments:  What an amazing place, I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a sporty vacation at a great place, with great food and loads of activities insides and outside the hotel to do. Will go again for sure! Hotel rooms are clean and nice, but don't expect something fancy in standard rooms. If you wanna party the nights through, this is definitely not the right place for you. Seems to be a secret rule that everyone's asleep at 9.30 pm.. And you have to be aware that the name of this island is because of a reason: it's pretty windy over there!

Comments:  We just got back from our half term holiday at Playitas and loved it so much. My children, 8 and 10 loved the slide, the pools, the scuba diving, the fabulous food! They came to 'Sun Salutations' with me every morning at 8am which amazed me. It was a nice little routine that I still try to do! Thanks Lena! My husband entered the 5km race on day 1 and also the Lighthouse Race 14km on the Friday. We entered the Aquathlon too! I loved the Olympic pool sessions. Yes, it was windy, but if you are so busy being active you don't really notice. If you are a serious cyclist, then training against the wind is good for you. I found the headwind tough on a bike, and cold if you get out of the pool, but IN the pool was mostly lovely and warm. My children MIGHT have benefitted from bringing their wetsuits I guess, but we were fine without them. Gluten Free eating was not a problem for our coeliac daughter - thank you all for going to the trouble to cater for all diets! She loved the GF pizza in the pool bar, and the chef in the buffet especially cooked her some favourite simple meals. I could rave about the instructors and classes forever - I did have so much fun doing core, pilates, body combat, Zumba, step etc... And we liked our apartment. We ate bread and cheese, fruit and yoghurt in our little kitchenette some nights - it had everything we needed. We hung out there to escape the heat in the early afternoons. The funniest thing was when a cat crept in at night, and slept in my open suitcase ontop of all my clothes. I put my hand in, to get something to wear in the morning and found a black cat in the half light! Very alarming! But cute. So we didn't leave our patio door open at night anymore after that. Thank you too for the kids activities - they really enjoyed the gymnastics Lena, and the team games, Tony and Miguel - such good ideas, and indoors out of the sun was useful at that time of day. I would ask for a few more of those kids activities for 8-15 year olds - it was half term in England but our half term didn't coincide with your kids academies. We did love the mini golf too! Just a brilliant week. Thank you Playitas!

Comments:  Amazing place for every sports jerk. Perfect for families or clubs for an active vacation. The fifth star will come if there was no fee for swimming in the olympic pool, tennis and badminton. And if there where free drinking water on the resort. Maybe raise the price for the hole stay and include it

Comments:  After one week staying at Playitas Aparthotel, I can think of nothing else but staying for another week. Great atmosphere, really kind and helpful people, excellent facilities and perfect climate. The Challenge Fuerteventura was great to watch and I really want to come back next year as a participant. Playitas has won me over.
