In Lanzarote for a few days. I hired a MTB and did the 'trails' around the Caldera Volcan.
It was tough work: the trails were rough in most places but with some nice sweeping runs with natural berms.
I must say I was not impressed with this 1x10 gearing. It's OK at the low end but I ran out of gears once the speed picked up - whereas at this stage I'd have about 10 more gears to go on my traditional 3x10 setup.

Lovely pictures. Last time I was down at Torq waterfall, I thought the signs said no cycling that route, buy I could be mistaken.

Is it a trail you could do on a gravel bike

Yeah, not supposed to be cycling there, I can't say I know why. I prefer to ask for forgiveness than permission though. Definitely couldn't do it on a gravel bike, it's rougher than a badger's arse.

I thought it would be a bit pants too , i bet the gearing is for tourists so quite low.


Its great, no mental maths or thinking to wonder about where you are in the cassette and does it make sense depending on the trail ahead to change the front.


Up or down, left side for seat, right side for gears means you can cane it concentrating on the trail.
