I've only been once but was there with the family earlier this year. We based ourselves in Costa Adeje, but to be honest as a stand-alone cycling destination I would avoid the west coast as this is the most built up area with mostly busy roads. That said, I would definitely try and get to the north-western point and do the descent/climb around Masca/Bueanavista. From my initial research it looked like there might be some nice off-road/gravel routes west of there to the lighthouse at Punta de Tena, but having not ridden it I can't advise on it's suitabilitity.
If you're looking to get up Teide I enjoyed the TF-38 route from Guia de Isora. Very quiet and well graded, but a good couple of hours if you're starting from the sea, as I was. Not sure if you've booked all of your accommodation but there is a hotel at the top of Teide (Parador) which is where the pros famously stay. Not sure there is much to do when you get there, mind; though that perhaps is the point for the professionals in training.
