Explore and experience the beauty of Algarve with a fascinating biking tour! We kick off this tour by taking you to the top of the Algarve Mountain where you can stop and enjoy the views of the west & south coasts and the beautiful scenery from the highest peak in the Algarve. The restaurant on top of this mountain is always open (except Saturdays) and can serve you a lovely coffee to start your day!
After a clear safety briefing, you will cycle back to the Algarve south coast, easy going downhill! Start your ride and we will lead you on forest paths with tarmac/asphalt and through the green valleys of the Serra de Monchique. We will explore the breath-taking area and stop so you can take beautiful pictures. Included are a healthy and tasty homemade picnic lunch with vegetable soup, a pasta salad with vegetables and tuna, and a freshly squeezed orange juice. In Summer, we change this to a delicious Portuguese gazpacho, a freshly squeezed orange juice, and locally grown melon.
For our smallest bike (14″ frame) we usually see that the minimum height required is 150 cm.
The largest bike size is suitable for riders up to 200 cm (6ft6).
The trip starts at the office in Mexilhoeira Grande. From here you are brought to the highest peak in the Algarve in the middle of the Serra de Monchique, by a mini-van.
The experienced multilingual guide will lead downhill you onto quiet land roads. The guide will stop at the most picturesque sites and shares information about the local wildlife and nature.
