Road cycling in Gran Canaria: where to rent a road bike?

Gran Canaria is one of the most beautiful and diverse islands in the Canary archipelago, offering everything from stunning beaches and warm climate to rugged mountains and picturesque towns. And what better way to explore this wonderful island than on a bike? If you’re planning a cycling adventure in Gran Canaria, Free Motion is the #1 bike rental company that you should definitely consider.

Free Motion #1 bike rental in Gran Canaria

Free Motion offers a wide range of bikes for rent, including road bikes, ebikes, e-road bikes, mountain bikes, and urban bikes. Rentals start at just €16 a day, making it an affordable option for any budget. During high season, however, you can only rent a bike for a minimum of 3 days. If you want to rent for 1 or 2 days only, you can visit the shop to see what’s available.

Apart from bike rentals, Free Motion also organizes tours around the island for multiple levels. The tours start at €25, excluding the price of renting your bike. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced rider, there’s a tour that will suit your needs.

Free Motion also sells high-quality second-hand and brand-new bikes. So, if you’re thinking about buying a bike, you can check out their store.

When it comes to collecting your rental bike, it’s essential to know that FreeMotion does not deliver bikes to hotels and accommodations. Instead, you need to collect your bike from one of their shops, where they can provide the best possible service in adjusting and fitting the bikes. By Spanish law, you need to wear a helmet when riding your bike on open roads and outside the urban area. You can rent a helmet for a one-off fee of 3€ (1-2 rental days) or 6€ (3 or more rental days).

You can pay your deposit by credit or debit card or in cash, making it convenient for everyone.

Many people wonder if there are any bike paths in Gran Canaria, or do they have to ride on the main road. Unfortunately, there are only a few cycle lanes in the city area. All cycle routes into the surrounding mountains are on open roads and shared with other road users. Therefore, it’s essential to take necessary precautions and be aware of traffic rules while riding on the roads.
