“Easy going Downhill”

Nature friendly, fun and safe cycling tours from the Foia; with 902 meters, the highest mountain in the Algarve. You will cycle with our guide downhill through the green valleys of Serra de Monchique. Enjoy the beautiful panoramic views and let gravity do the work!

The trip starts at the office in Mexilhoeira Grande (no car? no problem!) From here you are brought to the highest peak in the Algarve in the middle of the Serra de Monchique, by a mini-van.

Enjoy here the stunning views to the west & south coast. The restaurant on top of this mountain is always open and can serve you a lovely coffee before you start the trip. After a good explanation you will cycle back to the coast… easy going downhill!


Mountainbiking Algarve, easy going downhill

The experienced multilingual guide will take you on quiet land roads. The guide will stop at the most picturesque sites and give you information about the local wildlife and nature. Since 2001 rolls down this mountain. We have now developed this tour into a safe & fun concept of cycling in the mountains, suitable for young people and for those who stayed young!

The trip is suitable for everyone between 14-70 years with some cycling experience.

To deliver optimal service during the tour a service car will follow with water and your belongings.
Does this sound like too easy going? Join our Downhill Off-road Trip, for skilled riders only!

The aluminum ‘all terrain’ bikes are custom made and have safe hydraulic brakes from Magura, comfortable gel seats and front suspension. The handle bar is higher than on a normal bike, so you will enjoy a safe and comfortable sit position. We provide you with a helmet and a water bottle.
But, for just a relaxing ride, shopping or exercising, bikes can also be rented in Carvoeiro.
