From Andrew Mallagh

I visited the Canaries a couple of times this last winter and did a really good vehicle supported guided tour with Tenerife Bike Training. It is run by the Delgado brothers who were fantastic. They are really well organised, great communication and safety and realistic pricing. Below are links to 3 of their tours with comprehensive details. All are 8 days/7 nights/6 full guided ride days   €1373 + €200 single room supplement   €1742 + €100 single room supplement    €2170 + €150 single room supplement

I am proposing a winter tour some time between start of December and early March to suit the majority of any group that is interested. I’m pretty flexible. I did their Tenerife tour this year (2 different hotel locations in the South & North). Would be happy to do that again or one of the multi island alternative if that was preferred. They include everything you need such as airport transfers, hotel to hotel transfers (and ferries where applicable), half board in 4* hotels, full van support with water/bars/gels/fruit/electrolytes, transport to ride starts not at the hotel, at least 2 or 3 ride guides, etc. Bike hire delivered to the hotel is available at good rates for a range of bike specifications to meet your needs. You can see the actual ride itinerary for each tour in the links. Distances and elevations are all very realistic and doable for anyone familiar with out Saturday and Sunday club rides and the brothers are used to catering for groups with a wide range of fitness abilities and offer plenty of options for individuals to shorten (or lengthen) routes where desired using the van.  The Tenerife tour is the most popular and the best priced as there are less transfers.

To make up a group booking we’d need about 10 or more people committed to go and rates shown above include a group discount. (We could go with less but a group discount 8% would not apply). I would be happy to organise/co-ordinate re payments, research flight options, and deal with any logistics issues assuming there was a viable group who were prepared to commit. A small deposit would be required but full payment would not be required until 6 weeks before. So if you are interested and think you could commit (subject to date confirmation) then let me know by return (not later than 18th April). Also let me know if you have any specific date requirements or limitations. If we have a viable sized group of interested parties then we can take it from there.

PS non riding partners can also go for a 30% reduction in price
