Algarve cycling holiday in Portugal
Description of Algarve cycling holiday in Portugal
You’re on your own for this cycling holiday to the Algarve – and it’s grand. Armed with GPS route directions, maps, top-quality hybrid bikes and luggage transfers, you’ll cycle 30-40km a day along some of the prettiest paths in Portugal.
Leisurely does it. Wheel through rural pastureland where shepherds watch over their flocks, lunch in villages stocked with sun-splashed seafood restaurants, pedal through holm oak forests and skim along clifftops laced with head-turner views. Your maps will give you a choice between easy and trickier cycle routes, so you can tailor the trip to your ability.
This Algarve self-guided cycling holiday isn’t all rural idyll, though. Your halfway rest day in Lagos gives you the chance to explore the city’s 14th-century walls and cobblestone lanes. Rest your calves or do as the locals do and walk to Ponte de Piedade lighthouse.
