Activity Algarve Bike Rides

It has been a hot & busy August for us, but we did manage two good rides over the weekend.

On Saturday we had a good ride from Santa Barbara up and over some hills towards Querença and then up to a great little café in Tesoureira just outside Sao Bras. A little section of Roman road on the way down to Estoi and then a few new tracks back to Santa Barbara.

The American Dream Comes To The AlgarveIf you pass through Faro at the end of August you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that the Algarve had become America’s 51st State!

The Algarve is going all-American on August 29 and 30 for the fourth annual Americancars Algarve Show at the Parque de Lazer Das Figuras opposite The Forum in Faro.
Organiser Carlos Miguel Vila said “The show has been a big success over the past three years. And, this year, because the event has grown so big it is to be held over TWO days for the first time to squeeze in all the extra family-friendly activities that will now surround the parades of the classic cars”.

It really is The American Dream!
