Welcome to Gran Canaria – The island of eternal summer and the perfect destination for your next training camp and holiday. Velocasa’s ambition is to make sure you get the most out of every pedal stroke!

Introduction

Our base is in the south of the island (Sonnenland, Maspalomas). The south peak is well protected from the Northern more humid climate and has stable, good cycling weather with around +25-30 degrees the whole year. This is a quiet and safe area, but still very central. The super market is within walking distance (700m), and it takes only 7 min by bike to Playa del Ingles and 5 min to the beach and the ocean.
