“Follow your own path”

Rent an All Terrain Bike with helmet and handle bar bag. Choose one of our great routes which cover the best parts of the Western Algarve.

Cycle recreationally or fanatically, on tarmac or off-road; make your choice!

The routes take you through the heart of the West Algarve.

Discover the quaint narrow streets of the cobbled road villages, the terraced fields with wild flowers surrounded by dry stone walls and the warm hospitality of the Portuguese people.


The Algarve is a land of contrast, set your own pace and immerse yourself in a culture and heritage that is both unique and exceptional.

The routes are available with distances between 35 and 95 kilometres, from easy going tarmac to the beach, to roads climbing up to the Monchique Mountains. All routes contain information about cultural and historical sites, about where to lunch or to have a swim and give you clear instructions where to go.
We don’t like cars whilst cycling, so the routes go as much as possible on back roads; off the beaten track!
