Ride location

Algarve Cycling Camp and Granfondo map

Type of Terrain: Predominantly flat along the coast with two mountain ranges the Caldeirão and Monchique.

Flat and rolling stages: As a rule of thumb the coastal roads are flat with a few rolling hills.

Hilly stages: Long climbs to Fóia in the Monchique mountain range and Barranco do Velho and Alto do Malhão in the Caldeirão mountain range.

Descents: Short but spectacular descents in the Caldeirão mountain range and a long sweeping descent from Fóia till Silves.

Landscape: Huge variety of beaches, some below the cliffs and coves and others just long stretches of sand that reach as far as the eye can see. Rural setting in the mountain ranges of Caldeirão and Monchique where orange, almond, carob and cork trees abound.
