This tour in a nutshell

/ Discover the portuguese Silver Coast, riding by the Atlantic Ocean, starting in Alcobaça and Óbidos and finishing in Sintra and the oceanic retreat of Cascais. Visit the historical villages and monuments of Óbidos, Sintra and Pena Palace, considered world heritage sites by UNESCO. Taste the gastronomical delicacies of this region, with the highlight being the fresh fish that is truly wonderful; we should pair it with the region wines and the local monastic pastries and sweets. Relax in the historical Pousadas and charm hotels, while you have the Atlantic Ocean, an historical castle or the Leiria pinewoods as backdrop, exploring the trails that lead you from beach to beach.

In this bike tour you will get to ride from the northern Silver Coast city of Alcobaça, with its iconic Monastery, immerse in the medieval village of Óbidos and make your way towards the south, discovering the piscatorial villages and amazing natural beauty of this coast. Ride by Sintra and visit its UNESCO world heritage sites.

2 INTERMEDIATE

You will get to feel different riding experiences, from tougher climbs to rolling along in great company. You’ll have time to enjoy the great landscapes, gain speed in the descents and also push yourself and climb those tough hills. You’ll enjoy the variety of terrain, riding in a peloton and pushing a little harder just before the stop at the café.

3 EXPERT

/ I ride my bike an average of 100 kilometres or more per week and enjoy a fast paced ride for an extended period of time. I love to train, improve and be challenged by other riders. I enjoy all riding experiences, from big climbs to long, technical descents, especially the ones that allow me to push my limits and make long lasting memories.
You’ll get to ride in a peloton along with your peers but also challenge them on the long climbs. Lead the pack and take on the special extra-challenges we have in store for you – try to keep up with our guides as you go for the extra mile just before your well deserved rest and massage at the hotel!
