About us

Meet the founders

Jean-Paul, Yves and Frederic are all three passionate about cycling and the island Tenerife. The DNA of cycling is simply in their blood. As Belgian, cycling is taught to you from an early age and you simply grow up with it. 

The goal is to be different than other organisations, we want to create a new dimension of cycling in Tenerife. TeideBike and our team are happy to welcom you at this beautiful Island.

Cycling in Tenerife

Want flat cycling? Then don't come to Tenerife. The terrain is constantly going up and down.

This is why the volcanic island is so popular with professional athletes for training. You can climb up to 2,000 metres above sea level.

The ideal climate for cycling

Tenerife is the cycling paradise on earth. The climate here is very stable. You can expect pleasant temperatures all year round. So leave those sleeves at home because the sun is already shining.

In the morning it is already 20 degrees and that rises smoothly to 28 degrees. In summer, it can get a little warmer, but never extremely. It really is ideal cycling weather!

Our team on the spot

"I was born on a bicycle, so to speak. My father Hilaire Maes won more than 120 victories as a cyclist. So being a cyclist is in my genes. For a while I was an elite rider without a contract at continental level. I rode for a Belgian/Lithuanian continental team.

Entrepreneurship is another passion. Combining the two, is the challenge I take on as creator and founder of TeideBike!"

“As the organiser of El Teide Challenge, I know Tenerife like the back of my hand.

Moreover, I have managed more than 13 fitness centres in the past and still do to this day. With that experience in my pocket, I am happy to put my shoulders to the wheel for TeideBike”
