I was offered or asked. I ride with
Must wear helmet in Canaries, fine if caught without one.
Saves you getting a ticket !
I'm not scared of the ticket itself but what's the associated punishment? I might regard it as worth paying to avoid what I perceive as increased risk (but discussing why I perceive that or whether or not it's a correct perception should probably happen in the ghetto).
but that's a few years old and may have changed.
Lo siento, Señor Guardia. I am British, Spanish law does not apply to me. Arrivederci!
* do not try this line
The Guardia Civil are not necessarily known for their sense of humour, so best not.
Saw lots of cyclists during the airport-hotel transfer. Not a single one with a helmet!
I have booked my bike for collection in the morning. Have brought a helmet from the UK with me but won't be wearing it They'll have to catch me to ticket me.......
I'm liking your style
50+ miles MTB today. Got driven past by locale policia but not even a second look.
In other news, this place is barren, harsh, windy, brutal, and did I mention windy!
Was fine on the way out but fought the headwind most of the way home. Will need to rethink tactics for the next ride
You were warned about the wind. The name of the island means strong winds.
That's why I prefer Tenerife . It does have windy parts of the island, but not everywhere. Gran Canaria is similar
Lanzarote is also seriously windy - had two weeks riding round it, and it's not very big.
I heard Skolly can be seriously windy too.
Correct.... and the lot of us last weekend in Wales - too much beer.
Prefer gran canaria....only been there 11 times, will be the 12th in september, after only returning from there on monday lol
