The Algarve boasts one of the best climates in the world, with typically more than 300 days of sunshine a year, making it ideal for outdoor pursuits. Yet, surprisingly, despite being established as a seaside holiday destination, it’s still one of Europe’s best-kept cycling secrets. From its sparkling coastline to its unspoilt countryside, the Algarve is a cyclist’s ‘dream come true’.
See the ‘real Algarve’
At Algarve Bike Holidays we aim to introduce you to places that most visitors never see and to provide you with a holiday to remember. We have an ever-growing range of carefully selected holidays that cater for all tastes. If you’re looking for a gentle pedal along the coast or a more challenging off road experience, we have established routes that will expose you to many of the hidden gems that this fabulous region has to offer.
Looking beyond the tourist spots there’s an almost undiscovered world of traditional hill top villages and agricultural landscape interconnected by quiet roads, ideal for tour biking. For a more leisurely holiday, there’s a cycle route along the stunning coast, which Algarve Bike Holidays has adapted to show off the ‘best bits’.
There is an endless network of dirt tracks that stretch the length of the Algarve. Plus, we have some of the finest single tracks right on our doorstep and excellent technical tracks for the most serious die-hard mountain bikers.
Road biking is one of the most popular sports in Portugal. With low-density traffic, long and short climbs, varied terrain and smooth tarmac roads, this region has the potential to become one of Europe’s top road cycling destinations. The warm climate
makes it ideal for a winter camp, too.
This growing trend has widened the appeal of cycling. It has all the advantages of a regular bicycle, but electric assistance can be activated and increased as you wish. It’s ideal for a party of mixed ability or for those who want to enjoy a cycling holiday but with the focus on the scenery rather than the exercise!
Most of our clients like to travel independently, so the majority of our holidays are self-guided. But we also run a number of professionally guided events and group tours throughout the year for those who have limited time or who are looking to push the boundaries. They are fully guided and with support vehicles and luggage transfer. Check out the Events section on our website for details.
