    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).

    ETA:
    but that's a few years old and may have changed.

    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 :okay: They'll have to catch me to ticket me.......

    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.
