“A great bike ride down hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

I was part of a group of 7 Canadians that hired Happy Biking to provide a day-long descent ride on Gran Canaria. We drove by van for 45 minutes to an elevation of about 900 metres at the village of San Bartolome for a ride through some quiet countryside and then a great fun ride down to the ocean. Dennis was our guide and we were followed by a sag wagon, which fortunately we did not have to use except to carry our back packs and lunch, which was provided by Happy Biking at the village of Santa Lucia. Dennis was very knowledgeable about the vegetation and history of the area and continually supplied us with information. The views of the canyons were breath-taking. It will be hard to find a ride better than this one anywhere back home.
I wish to thank Jose of Happy Hiking for his understanding of our change of plans for a hike after have such fun on the bike ride. This company is very good to deal with and I highly recommend using this company for either a bike ride or a hike in Gran Canaria.

“Brilliant 2,000 meter freewheel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

This was the second best bike ride I have been on and I have got around many cities on bike tours.
You climb to around 2,000 meters by mini bus with the bikes behind and you just freewheel down, there is some cycling but very little, the views and sights on the way down are brilliant, around 4 hours from start to finish.

“6 days bike hire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2013

Ok not as flashy a shop as freemotion but it makes up for it in friendlyness and helpfulness. Only go to the other shop if you are a extremely serious road cyclist. Happy Biking all the way for me
