Cycling in the Canary Islands

While doing a bit of research on the Canary Islands for the post that was inspired by my friend’s story of her mother’s life as a lady’s maid on a cruise ship, I found this video on You Tube. Tenerife looks like a cyclist’s dream which is one reason why quintessentquirk posted this video. Quintssentquirk owns a cycling shop on the island. There’s an informative write up about the process of making this video and the song choice–“Kalifornia” by Kashmir.

Tenerife is one of those places where strong legs and lungs is an asset when bike riding. Watching this might entice you to hop on a bike.
