Join us at the Douro Granfondo and get a free registration

Book your cycling weekend in the Douro until the 15th of December to get a free registration to ride the biggest road cycling event in Portugal.

In May of 2017, the Douro will again be the center stage for the Love Tiles Douro Granfondo. And we wouldn't dare to miss it!

Friendship is Love Tiles Douro Granfondo's theme for 2017, which seems to fit the feeling our participants get after visiting and riding by the Douro valley for a cycling weekend, topped off by this great event! For 2017, the bar is raised up to 4000 cyclists and you can expect all the previous events had – stunning landscapes, three different and challenging courses suitable for everybody, emotion, parallel activities, gifts and surprises.

We will again be organizing a cycling weekend in the Douro region ( check the link ), from the 5th to the 7th of May, in which you'll be able to participate in the Douro Granfondo, Mediofondo or Minifondo, in a three day cycling packed adventure. Besides being able to participate in daily guided bike tours from friday to sunday, you'll also get to visit local wine farms and cellars, experience the Douro's wonderful gastronomy in two group dinners and enjoying the pro like experience with a private briefing before the event and mechanical assistance througout the weekend. And you can share this experience with other cycling enthusiasts at Quinta do Vallado, a sophisticated wine hotel just 2 km away from the starting line of the Granfondo.

Book a "three day guided experience" with us until the 15th of December, and we are offering a free registration to the Douro Granfondo 2017!
