Hi! I used to live on Lanzarote for 5 months in 2012, its a really nice island for cycling!

I dont know where you will stay, but if you will stay in Club La Santa, i would go on this route for example:

La Santa-Famara-San bartolome (But before you enter the city, take a left in the roundabout to Teguise) - Teguise
Once you came out of teguise, take a right and go along the seaside, then climb up to La Haria, and the highest point of the island. Then descend back to Teguise on the other side, and go back on the same way.

This one is a really nice ride for example. If you are interested in detailed routes with road numbers etc, just send me a message, in that 5 months ive been to almost every road on the island...

In NYC I would bike around Manhattan. I love beautiful road rides in the mountains but biking around manhattan is a real thrill and you get to see so much. It's fun to to pretend ou are a bike courier an doge traffic

For the canaries I have been to both Club la Santa and last two years Playitas ( http://www.playitas.info/ ) on Fuerteventura and I prefer Playitas as a resort and I also think the cyclingroutes are just as good as from La Santa.
The food buffet on Playitas is actually pretty good imo. So you don't have to eat at restaurents or make your own food everyday.
This year we travelled with our daughter (10 months old at that time) and the evening buffet was a lifesaver.

Here is my strava log from the groupride december 2012:
