On Saturday April 6th, La Palma will host an extreme bike race called Ultrabike. Actually, there are two races, a short one of 34 km and a long one of 110 km. Both routes go through gorgeous scenery in the south of the island, and both involve lots of climbing. For example, the high point of the long ride is 1,575 m above sea-level, but the total climbs add up to 4,072 m, which is pretty much like climbing Teide.
There’s also a kids’ competition in Los Cancajos (any children who want to compete must be there by 9:30 am with their bike and helmet.)
Personally, I plan to spend the day sitting on the couch eating chocolate. But if you want to sign up for the race, the official website is at: http://www.ultrabikelapalma.com/index.php/en/en-competicion/event-data
