Breathtaking gravel cycling
We believe the gravel cycling in Portugal is some of the best in Europe. This is your chance to be taken into the hidden valleys and secret trails of the beautiful countryside of the Algarve. We can guarantee this is a true escape from your normal every-day life and an unforgettable week of sublime cycling. We don’t like traffic and we know our clients don’t either. That’s why we have invested hours riding and plotting the most spectacular, quiet and gravel-bike friendly routes we possibly can.
For more competent off-road riders there are some more challenging single tracks that we will introduce you too. Novice? Don’t worry, for you we will have beginner-level tracks and trails for you to enjoy! Most tracks are suitable for 4×4 vehicles, and so couldn’t be better suited for any gravel thrill-seeker.
Guests will stay in the beautiful town of Loulé which is a perfect place for gravel cycling; away from the busier coastline and within minutes of some of the best tracks and trails of central Algarve.
Loulé itself is a charming, traditional Portuguese town. It’s castle, market and small cobbled streets are all popular with tourists and the town has a particular buzz on a Saturday morning when the outdoor fruit and vegetable market is held.
The hotel is (of course) very bike-friendly, with a secure garage.
We love to support the local restaurant owners, so the group will eat in different hand picked local restaurants each night, most within walking distance of the hotel. By the end of the week you will have had a taste of the many traditional dishes of Portugal and in particular the Algarve. Allergies or dietary requirements? No problem, we will ensure that every restaurant can cater for this and confirm with you in advance.
Heritage and Culture
However it’s not just a gravel cycling holiday… as you ride, you will also experience the culture and heritage of this amazing country – the local cuisine, wine and liquor making, the agriculture, historic monuments and the ancient creative traditions. Guests will leave with a taste of authentic Portugal – and we know you will want to return!
