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.
For 2024 we have moved the location of our Authentic Algarve gravel holiday to Alte, a small village in the heart of the Algarve hills.
Guests will stay in the beautiful Alte Tradition Guesthouse, a newly renovated traditional guesthouse in the centre of the village. With a rooftop hot tub and a plunge pool we know you will love the choice of accommodation for the week. Every morning you will enjoy a fresh and plentiful buffet breakfast to fuel the day ahead.
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.
