Tenerife Training 150 150 Reading Cycling Club

Mike Fenwick and Greg Woodford went for a week to Tenerife. Here is Mike’s summary.

I expected to work hard on a week’s training in Tenerife but managed a bit more than expected.

The weather was ideal and when I am paying to hire a bike (Ridley) I am certainly going to use it. Greg Woodford and I booked Hotel El Medano in the small town of El Medano on the coast.

Tenerife is unique in that you can be constantly climbing for 2 – 3 hours.

There are not too many roads up the mountain so we would invariably end up at the Parador at over 2000 m for refreshments. As the week progressed I realised I might be setting my highest ever climbing figures for a week.

My Garmin recorded the 7 days at 812.6 km and 22717 m of climbing. Probably never to be repeated by myself. Feb 2016.
