Alvor coastal bike trip

Alvor coastal bike trip

If you would enjoy cross country mountain biking on the rocks, magnificent cliff top views, secluded beaches and challenging single track our mountain bike guide can take you out on an off road bike trip along the coast from Alvor to Portimão.     

From the meeting point on national road 125 in Mexilhoeira Grande the tour starts heading south on double track along the banks of a meandering river. We continue with cliff top single track near the estuary of Ria de Alvor. From there we travel in easterly direction to find the cliffs of Prainha, very popular amongst local freeriders. 

This tour will challenge your riding skills but most of all show you some of Algarve's most magnificent sites. It is an active way to experience the beauty of this golden coast with its endless ocean, white beaches, impressive cliffs and unique flora and fauna. And there's more, the tour will also take you to the city of Portimão. A chance to observe typical local city life, perhaps while sitting on a terrace with a refreshing ice cream.

The experienced multi lingual bike guide will lead the tour choosing the best tracks and stop at interesting panoramic view points. The total biking distance is 32 km which takes a net cycling time in between 2 and 3 hours. The trip is suitable for everyone between 15 and 65 years old, with a good level of fitness and some mountain bike experience. The use of a good quality aluminium mountain bike and safety helmet is included and you are provided with 2 bottles of cold water.
