Following the success of randonnées such as the famous RAID Alpine, Pre-Alpine, Dolomites, Pyrenean and Corsica, Polka Dot are launching a brand new challenge, the RAID Tenerife.  Unlike other RAIDs, this one has been principally set-up with the idea of it being an early starter to your randonnées/sportive season. 

It’s another significant challenge with 12,000m of climbing in 100 hours, but covering a shorter distance, being deliberately designed so that it’s rideable early season.

Tenerife like Corsica, is a very mountainous island, with the snow-capped Mount Teide rising to 3718m overlooking the whole island, although the roads go to 2330m.  The island has seven different vegetation zones, with two additional separate small mountain ranges and even a small rainforest! This makes the scenery very varied and constantly changing.

The route of this RAID is a circuit of the island including the mountain range to the North West, one to the East, as well as taking several routes up Teide.  The final day finishes at the Paradores hotel, over looked by Teide and the hotel where all the pro cyclists stay. A fitting finish to this great journey.

Like the other RAIDs, a medal is awarded for all those completing the challenge within 100 hours.

  • Total Distance:  450km
  • Time to complete: 100
  • Total Climbing: 12,000m (averages 2400m/day)
