Make no mistakes, Algarve is as beautiful as it is challenging for bike riders. Don't get fooled by the beautiful and golden beaches, the beatiful tans strolling on the streets of the picturesque villages and towns perched over the ocean. And don't be enchanted by the delicious and fresh fish and sea food. You need to climb and climb hard. And you need to roll and roll hard. After each stage, after you deserve it, by all means indulge your self on all the pleasures offered by the beautiful Algarve region.

But make sure that you are well rested for the next day! We'll start our Tour around Lisbon, then will head South, alongside the South shore of Portugal flanked by the rugged landscape of the windward Lagos, where we'll stay for two wonderful and harsh rides. After Lagos, we head towards Tavira. Be prepared, the climbs here are amazing...and so, so hard! But the innerland landscapes form the most overwhealming experience we can have while riding our bikes. Back to Lisbon for the final stage.


 

 

"There is no delight in owning anything unshared", Seneca said it a few centuries ago and it still prevails and makes more sense when you start discovering the untouched landscapes of Algarve innerland. The secluded villages are a must, the roads barely have cars and the people is always helpful! On the top of it, you'll find the most gorgeous beachs in Algarve that serves as the perfect backdrop for our Tours. And the food? Prepare yourself for a feast!

Algarve is more than what you might think it is! Probably you have heard about some beaches and resorts...they are fine, but we are going to show you another side of Algarve that is most of the times unspoken, like a little secret! Come and enjoy the almond trees blossom whitening the landscapes, enjoy the seclued villages, the beaches, the people, the luxury hotels and, of course, everything always feeling more intense since you'll be riding your bike and feeling the breeze, the warmth and scents on the air.  May be the word that best describes the overall experience is Overwhealming! Come, and feel it for yourself!
