WE LOVEBreathtaking Coastal Riding
The Algarve is one of cycling's biggest secrets. The most southerly point of Europe offers cycling to rival big hitters like Mallorca and Girona. The smooth, tarmac roads wind themselves up and over the Portuguese coast and into the mountains. The roads are of such great standard that brands like Cube use them to test their new bikes.
WE LOVEGranfondo Algarve
The Granfondo Algarve is a great sportive to start your season. Choose to ride the Mediofondo (78k) or the Granfondo (121k).
