Why Algarve?

Sea, beach and mountains

The landscape is extremely rich. Here, you can cycle on a relatively flat ground. You can follow a rolling trail and even briskly climb to an altitude of almost 1000 meters. And then you get this view on the Atlantic ocean! This area has it all: beautiful beaches and rough highlands, from a green cape to a bare mountain.


A very important fact – the weather is always good in Algarve! You can come here through the whole year for a relaxed tour ride or a challenging training camp. Above all, this is the place to get through the winter and yet to enjoy cycling. Even the winter temperatures are around 16-20 degrees Celcius, so you can hit the road in your shorts and a T-shirt!


Our base in Algarve is the central Portimão. This is a pleasantly sunny place in the heart of Algarve. You actually sleep on the Praia da Rocha, a rocky beach, which fully corresponds to its name. From a hotel, you step on to the beach and the boulevard and look out at the azure blue sea and its breathtaking rocks.

The routes

Whether you like climbing or prefer cycling on a flatter ground, you can do it all on the south coast of Portugal. For the most part, you will be riding on quiet roads covered with excellent tarmac. You can ride the routes at your own level, between 31 and 74 miles (or 50 and 120 km respectively). We have chosen some really challenging climb routes, but also some flatter routes closer to the coast. Something for everyone and challenging for every level!

Let us help you to discover the most spectacular places near Portimão. We will give you the tested GPX files of your routes, so you won't miss the right turn. Do you prefer to explore the area with a guide? No problem, we will make sure that an experienced English-speaking bicycle guide will join you.

The villages and the beautiful surroundings make your day trips more than worth it. Do you want to go further than your legs can carry you? Get in touch with us and put your own trip together. We are always happy to help you!

This offer is covered by the STO Garant guarantee. You can find the conditions for this guarantee scheme on STO Garant’s website.
