Touring in Tenerife

It's cold, so CTC's Anna Cipullo and her bike have taken a trip to Tenerife to catch some winter sunshine and cycle up some very steep hills.

We decided to stay all week in a half-board chalet on the north west coast in Playa de la Arena, so that we could keep our bikes safely inside at night and make our own food and packed lunches.

The north west is not as sunny as the more tourist-ridden south coast, but it is at the foot of a set of mountains. Prime cycling territory was just right outside our chalet door.

On the first day it poured with rain. So we decided to acquaint ourselves with the local bar. Warning: Spanish measures apply in Tenerife too!
