places to cycle to from Puerto del Carmen

hi, can anyone suggest places to visit within bicycle distance from PDC?

bearing in mind I'm no expert, I only cycle when on holiday. we are in our 50's.

Anywhere of interest, a nice beach, village, town etc.

Also, recommend a cycle hire shop.

Thank you

The cycle path takes you along the front, through Matagorda and to the airport you can watch the planes land, the approach being directly over your head. You can then head on to Arrecife which is the capital, perhaps grab a snack or refreshement in Playa Honda along the way. You can then decide whether to push further on to Costa Teguise.

As for cycling shops, there are plenty to choose from. Never heard any horror stories, best advice I could give is use the one that is most convenient to your apartment.

You'll be falling over bike hire shops in PDC ! They're everywhere. If you say where your staying can point you direction of your nearest ?

There's a cycle path that runs the length of the coast, from the old town in PDC right along to Matagorda almost back to the airport, it's a lovely cycle ride with plenty of places to stop en route.

End to end it's just short of 4 miles........... http://goo.gl/maps/oGZlq of course you could carry on to Playa Honda beyond the airport too.

Failing that I can recommend Rent-A-Bike which is on Calle Anzuelo, just round the corner from you. They also do a half day hire if you don't plan on being out all day, I think you need to have the bike returned by 4pm.

I wouldn't personally use apartment rental bikes...........they tend not to be up to much and often more expensive UNLESS they have a reciprocal deal with one of the hire shops which sometimes happens.

You closest out and out bike shop is Rent-A-Bike on Calle Anzuelo - Map - http://goo.gl/maps/OsFmt 5 mins walk away - €12 for 24hr rental
