Note :- Clients wishing to arrive a day or two earlier or leave a day or two later can be accommodated, please contact us for price confirmation

Tuesday 16th: Arrival

We recommend you plan to arrive Tuesday, allowing you to join all of our five guided tours during the week starting Wednesday.

Upon your arrival in the Algarve, we will transfer you to your quality hotel accommodation situated near the old town and beach of Albufeira. This is an ideal spot to recover from your day’s cycling, as the hotel features two outdoor pools, a heated indoor pool, gym, hydro massage and sauna.

Wednesday 17th – Sunday 21st 

The week’s programme includes five professionally guided tours along scenic cycling routes, where you can discover some of the Algarve’s hidden charms, along quiet, smooth tarmac roads.

Each day we will cycle or transfer to a region of the Algarve, where the Pro’s will be racing. You can try out parts of their route and watch the race from a strategic viewing point. We aim to cycle around 75km a day, depending on the terrain, and our programme will be flexible to accommodate varying group abilities.

As well as watching the Volta ao Algarve, you will have the opportunity to tackle some of the Algarve’s iconic climbs, which feature in the Pro event. This, coupled with picturesque routes through historic towns, sleepy villages and unspoilt countryside, provides the perfect chance for you to kickstart your cycling season amongst like-minded people and pick up some tips from some of the best in the field.

Monday 22nd: Departure

We will transfer you from your hotel for your journey home.
