Escape to the authentic Algarve with us! During this cycling holiday you will experience the very best roads of the Algarve – the hidden gem of Europe for road cycling. Easy coastal riding near Faro, challenging climbing in Monchique and rolling hills of the central Algarve. In April the spring flowers will be in full bloom all around, and the summer warmth starting to approach. In Autumn the fig trees will be full of fruit, and the weather is almost always hot!
Heritage and Culture
This week is not just about the bike… as you cycle, 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. You will leave with a taste of real Portugal – and we know you will want to come back.
You will be staying in the beautiful town of Loulé, Algarve. It is located in the perfect place for cycling, away from the busier coastline (but only an easy 10km away), and right in the heart of the best cycling areas of the 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.
We love to support the local restaurant owners, so you 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 can take care of everything.
