Climb Summary

Climb Summary

PJAMM will ride and document this climb in 2019.  We have confirmed with several Strava members who have ridden this climb that it can be done on a road bike:

Hi, I would recommend gravel bike for this climb; this road is magic and the landscape unbelievable, with a narrow porton ( 6 meters large ) with on both side a huge gap. For road bike, I would suggest in canarias island the road to roque de los muchachos : https://www.strava.com/activities/100019042/overview  . The road is clean, gorgeous landscapes and you have a mix of fast/steep sections. Gauthier

Gauthier, Roque de los Muchachos is already on the list :) .......For the Ribeira Grande: is there much gravel on the road much of what I read is that is it fully paved though with cobblestones?

Gauthier D. fully paved with cobblestones, uncomfortable for a road/racing bike, you need a bike able to absorb/resists vibrations.

We appreciate any input you have regarding cycling and getting around the Cape Verde Islands as we have received mixed information on that.  Please contact us at john@pjammcycling.com .  Thank you.
