Ride location

Porto Granfondo cycle sportive map

Type of Terrain: Mixed. A good mixture between typical urban landscape of Porto and open views by the Douro river and oceanic rides towards Espinho.

Hilly stages: Long climbs to the vantage points alongside the river, they're great challenges for those who wish to push themselves a little harder;

Descents: Beautiful descents towards the big dams across the river, but not technically difficult.
