Tenerife is an island renowned as both a holiday destination and an athlete's training ground. So I invited a few members of my cycling club and we all travelled to the Canary Islands for a couple of weeks ;D.

I surprised them by booking to partake in a Volcano Tour tenerifebiketraining.com/ which consisted of a week long adventure. The extremes of temperature, altitude, climate and terrain created the perfect training environment. Many professionals praise the island for it's tauntingly difficult conditions as they really push a person to their physical limits.

Before leaving England I made sure my bike was in top-notch condition so I replaced the bushings and crank bearings from www.ggbearings.com/en/company/... and splashed out on the Campagnolo Thermal Water Bottle totalwomenscycling.com/road-cy... . The bottle retains the temperature of the drink you put in it, so basically my water stayed cooler for longer. Definitely necessary for exercising in the Canarian climate!

Of course after the first week of intense cycling, our second week was spent exploring the island, climbing up Mt. Teide and sunning it up!!
