Comments:  Thoroughly enjoyed an recent cycling trip around Albufeira with Algarve Bike Holidays. The booking system is simple and I got a bike exactly to the spec supplied to Paulo by e-mail. I went on two tours with them, the first around the Padern Valley which was a relaxed trip with guide Marc, who was helpful, informative and entertaining on the way round. The second was a more challenging spin to Foia the highest point in the Algarve, Marc was again the guide and his knowledge and expertise of the area and of the sport give great confidence to all participants on this tough ride. I am looking forward already to booking with Algarve Bike Holidays for next year.

Comments:  We did the Coastal Challenge this year. Beautiful place, great route, amazing way to see the Algarve. The route's a nice combination of track, road, hill and (once) beach! Tiring but very satisfying, and a really nice group of people to pass a weekend with. Fred and Marco were brilliant, though beware - Marco sets a tough pace!

Comments:  I had the pleasure of being part of a bike camp organized and guided by Algarve Bike Tours. It was great cycle experience. Well run in all respects, routes, length of cycling each day, stop times not too long and not too short, flexible when needed. I highly recommend this company if you are thinking of a cycle vacation in the Algarve.

Comments:  I booked 5 days road riding and to be honest I couldn't asked for any better riding. Marco the guide is a top rider you knows where to go to find the perfect rides. the hills where great before we got to them he would tell us about them and if we wanted to push it we could. I couldn't recommend algarvebikeholidays.com highly enough.

Comments:  Have just finished 3 tough days road cycling in the Algarve. I had previously gone mountain biking with this form and as it was so good I returned. We cycled approximately 290kms but the climbing was in excess of 5000mts. We had a great group but my sincerest thanks to Marco our guide who was great. Our last ride was to Monchiche and Foia ( highest point in the Algarve at 905mts) was great and Marco helped us with his approach and good humour.
