Starting in the picturesque resort and fishing village of Playa de Mogan (“Little Venice” or “Venice of the Canaries”), we head north on GC-200. The first 5+ miles provided a great warm-up to the city of Mogán. Once we leave Mogan, the climb gets a little more challenging and the switchbacks start to emerge along with the amazing landscape.
