Cycle Portugal

Saturday 7th October 2023

This classic journey follows the fabled N2, Portugal’s answer to Route 66

700km from historic Chaves in the north to Faro in the sunny south.

This extraordinarily scenic ride takes you through terraced vineyards and fields of olive and cork trees, along river-banks and over winding hills with sweeping valley views. The undulating landscapes of the Alentejo, with its traditional white-painted houses, give way to the citrus orchards of the Algarve and the breeze of the Atlantic Ocean.

With long days in the saddle offset by shorter ones, and the long, steady climbs rarely steep, this challenge ticks all the boxes – the epic achievement of pedalling the length of a country, at an achievable pace with a hefty dose of cultural discovery!
