6CI2303 - Riding Academy on the Canary Islands

Saturday, March 11, 2023 | Peter Kuhn / Michael Göbel | Europe

Sunset at our hotel

Day01 - Class room and practice area

Our first riding day started with some classroom training to be prepared for the exercises on the bike at the training course. 

The group was doing really well at the course and everybody had fun. The afternoon ride was spectacular and we could practice what we learned. We deserved a bootbeer at the hotel. Great first day!

Michael trained the viewing
In the Slalom we exercise the viewing and the cornering
Braking and going around obstacles
After a hard exercise we enjoy a beer on the sun terace

Day02 - Training on Teneriffa northern roads

What a beautiful riding day! We explored the northern part of Tenerife on some really twisty and challenging roads. Perfect weather, great scenery and a great group. What else could you ask for? Lunch at the remote mountain village of Teno Alto was the highlight. The roud leading up there was fantastic. 

The first stop of the day with a nice view over the Ocean to the peak of La Gomera

Day03 - Training on the road southern loop around Teide

Today we were heading South on the TF28, one of the most twisty roads in Teneriffa. An outstanding ride! But the moonlike landscape at the Teide volcano was also spectacular and the afternoon ride to the hotel was a blast.


After enjoying the TF-28 we went up the Guimar Vally and could enjoy a nice view to the coast

Day04 - We go on Tour to La Gomera

La Gomera is so beautiful,  a dream for bikers. The scenery is breathtaking, the roads are superb and our hotel is excellent. All riders in the group did really well and it is hard to find anything they do wrong. A perfect day in motorcycle paradise!

Day05 - Final ride around Gomera and one more time to the Top of Tenerife

It was hard to leave paradise today. But we had a wonderful morning ride over La Gomera with one outstanding road leading to the coast. What a ride!

The afternoon on Teneriffe was also nice, visiting El Teide again. We had a great Gala dinner and it was time to say good bye to a fantastic group. Well done Ladies and Gentleman! See you on an other Edelweiss trip!
