Three us picked up from our hotel and taken to the office in Mexilhoeira Grande, from there we were taken to the highest point in the Algarve, with great views of the South and West coasts. Then starts the exhilarating ride back down to Mexilhoeira Grande some 35k away , this is on a mixture of good roads , not so good roads and tracks through wonderful countryside. Many stops for information from our fantastic guide Thomas and for more cold water from our back up driver Mark , who did a great job of keeping us hydrated. Halfway down a stop in a village for a wonderful lunch and then back on to the office , only difficult bit , the last 1km is a steep hill !! But would recommend for families , our 13 yr old daughter coped well and thoroughly enjoyed the experience as we all did. Thanks again to the team at outdoor tours .

Hello Lyndon,

many thanks for your review.

Indeed our office where we cycle back to lies on small hill. The last 500 metres are going slightly uphill and in the August heat that is for many a challenge.

On the other hand the accomplished feeling is unforgettable and the free and cold beer (or soda) offered in the office does taste extra well we hope.

We hope to see you again on our Downhill rides.

best regards,
Frank

Great day with friends cycling from the top of Foia towards the coast. A range of abilities but everyone made it. Not too strenuous but a few hills to get the legs working. Stopped for a lovely lunch in a tiny quaint village. The views and scenery are incredible. Would definitely recommend this for a fun activity in the Algarve

It already starts with meeting in the morning and driving up the Foia hill; everything is well planned and up-to-date. Relaxed atmosphere and ability to help you where needed.
Coffee up at the top is the best, with a AA view of 2 coast lines.
Then going down-hill in the group is just great, safe and a good exercise as well!
