CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Masca - a World Most Epic bike climb.

Ride 3.8 kilometers gaining 430 meters at 11.5% average grade.

This is just an WOW - UNBELIEVABLE bike climb.  As I finished the climb, I excitedly exclaimed “this is a World Top 25 Most Epic Climb” and I will not retract that excited utterance a month later as I sit in my office in Northern California - it’s THAT GOOD!

Of course Tenerife is all about climbing Mount Teide, and rightly so. However, the next most epic and prominent bike climb on the Island is Masca which can be done via the Lighthouse Loop - see PJAMM Tenerife Adventure Page (this shows the route in a direction where we descend Masca - however, it is our preference to do the route counter-clockwise and climb Masca.

Climb begins in Masca, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.

One of, if not THE, most epic view on this climb -

View southwest through Masca Gorge at kilometer 2.3 of the North Atlantic Ocean and La Gomera Island.

The serpentine steep roadway along sheer cliffs and rock walls is stunning.

If you are one of the most epic bike climbs in the world . . .

. . . be prepared for tour buses!

PJAMM never misses a photo opp!

Finish at Mirador de Cherfe -

There is a food truck and spectacular views at the finish.  A testament to the popularity of the location is its Google 4.7 rating with 2,138 reviews as of 15 October 2022.
