There is nothing like the incredible feeling of summiting a Tour climb with blue skies all around and the sun on your back.

    not sure about the climb but we did the coach trip to the top. On the way there were loads of DHers all over the mountain. Theres some pretty mad runs down at the treeline level.

    Not my cup of tea to be honest.

    We went for the Mountain biking and used Lavavtrax. We did a route called "The Long Way Down" it starts at the cable car station at the base of Teide and desends 2400M over a distance of 70Km into Medano, highly recommend.
