ANSITE

ANSITE

A challenge for the lovers of the distances shortest and explosive.  About 50 kilometers no rest from Santa Lucía to the coast of Arinaga. The southeastern part of the island, with a very characteristic vegetation and mountains await you so that you can achieve the goal of crossing the finish line of the Transgrancanaria Bike.


The most explosive route

  9 October. Santa Lucía – Arinaga

Our modality Ansite will have its starting point in the municipality of Santa Lucía. We will be making here an exclusive section of this modality until hooking later on with the rest of the racesthat take place on Sunday in the track of El Gallego. Afterwards, we will be reaching the reservoir of La Sorrueda, a fertile landscape of the south east of Gran Canaria that shelters a lush palm grove in the foothills of the Fortaleza de Ansite, an emblematic settlement and pre-Hispanic sanctuary, continuing along the ravine to the Aldea Blanca. You only have to go through the last kilometres, filled with low mountain vegetation, typical of the eastern slope of the island. You will be arriving at the town of Agüimes, where you can see the end of the route: the coast of this part of the island. This last section will be the descent to the mountain of Arinaga, where the event will end.
