Hi everyone! What a day here in Tenerife exploring the south of the island. We have started off the trip with a hike a bike from Vento, through the barancos and ascending Roque del Conde. The view up there is amazing, and we had such a clear evening for a 360 panorama. We hiked up the trail then rode down back the same route which was mostly shepherd trails---- with lots of big rock step downs, tight corners and dust.
We hiked up to the top as a warm up and acclimatisation for the next few days of riding and filming with Adrenalin Rehab. Hydration and nutrition are already proving to be important too with the temperature around 27C all day with little wind when climbing, but riding back down to the town is rad!
I'm still trying to get the right setup with tyre pressures and suspension as the trails are a lot more rough than the UK, but tomorrow we are getting an uplift to ride about 2000m of vertical descending so that will be a good opportunity to test out a few different settings.
