To enjoy cycling on Tenerife at full, some of these clothing tips might come handy:
During summer (July and August) : As it hardly rains during this periode, expect warm wether, sometimes even warmer in the mountains as at sealevel. r i n g s u m m e r. 26 C . is the normal overade temprature during this period. The ideal clothing to bring are summer pant and summer shirts (take care of your skin as well, the sun is very strong) . During the whole year we do recomend bringing a windbreaker on all mountain climbs as the descents are long and can make your body cool off too much (even sometimes during summer) . Always prepare to take enough wáter during these months!
During Spring and Autum (September, October, April and May): The tempratur in these months is a steady 24 C. On most days, also the temprature during midday is similar in the mountains if it isn’t to cloudy up. Summer clothing in combination with a warmers and windbreaker is the ideal kit. Morning or evening rides can be a bit colder and might require an extra layer on some days.
During Winter (November to February): In general the temperature at sea level on the South side of the island is mostly the same as during the spring and autum. The North side of the island can be cooler and wetter as during the rest of the year. A waterproof jacket is a must if you plan on cycling on the Nord side or in the Anaga- Massive. The temprature in the mountains will be a lot colder during these months. Sometimes you can even encounter frost/ice above 2000 m. During Winter we therefor recomand taking arm and leg warmers along as well.
