This holiday is completely flexible and can be tailored to your requirements. Arrive any day you like and stay for as long as you like.

Upon arrival in Faro, you will be picked up and taken to Monchique, an hour or so into the hills. Check in, relax and discover the beautiful 5* resort which has an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, sensuous spa, wellness rooms and a great restaurant and terrace, not to mention all the cycling facilities you could require.

Your bike will be delivered directly to the hotel and there is a bike workshop if you need any adjustments made to the bike.

To climb, head inland and enjoy the Serra de Monchique mountain range.

On departure, your bike will be picked up and you will be taken back to the airport.

What to ExpectFrom challenging mountain rides to traffic free roads

The mountains and west coast of Portugal offers a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the Algarve’s thronging beaches. You will stay inland in the Serra de Monchique, a rolling mountain range with slopes made up of deciduous oaks, chestnut woods and dazzling colours. Your rides will take you out onto roads used by the pros and tested by bike manufacturers, and towards the quiet west coast beaches where the only noise comes from waves lapping at the shore.
