Algarve Bike Rides - Explore the unspoilt areas of Algarve by bike

Activity Algarve Bike Rides

Join us for one of our bike rides through the Algarve countryside, on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year. See details below.

As the weather turns cooler, thoughts turn to Xmas and an annual dinner. I am thinking of Saturday 14th December. Please make a note in your diary and any suggestions on venue are welcome. I have one place in mind and will start to organise soon. 

Saturday Rides : For a number of reasons, I have decided that it doesn't make sense for me to do the Saturday rides anymore. This has been under consideration for a while, and now I have an enthusiastic volunteer to take over I can confirm this. Please support Diana Houtzager in leading the Saturday rides from now on, details below.

Wednesday Rides : I am thinking about making these more like Sunday rides. There is a larger and growing population of Sunday riders and relatively few Wednesday riders in comparison. If you are a Sunday rider and you would like a Wednesday morning ride at the Sunday level, the please let me know. If there is sufficient interest, I will consider making this a regular change, if not the Wednesday rides will stay the same for the time being.  

Charity Ride : The annual Estoi Palace Rotary club charity ride will take place on Sunday 24th November. There will be two different rides, one up the hill and the other towards the coast. Please make a note of this date in your diary , further details at https://algarvedailynews.com/community-news/charity-news/17141-end-polio-now-charity-bike-ride-nov-24th and on Facebook.

We have our annual Rota Vicentina MTB tour scheduled for November 14th to 17th, more details HERE. We have also been working on some new long distance routes along the Guadiana river and across the Algarve, and we will be running some guided tours on the dates below.
