Proper Cycling Holidays

Imagine a place where you can ride all day on quiet roads, with smooth tarmac, incredible views, climbs and fast descents... Now add barely any traffic, 300 days of sunshine a year, great beaches and the friendliest people in Europe...

Well, this place isn’t imaginary. It actually exists. This unbelievable combination is a cyclist’s dream. Welcome to the Algarve, Portugal.

The Algarve has been a cycling secret for years. Several pro teams train and race here in the famous Volta au Algarve - the oldest running stage race.
Proper Cycling takes a new fresh approach to cycling holidays. We offer relaxed guided social rides, full support, self-guided rides and training camps for the more serious riders.
Whatever your preferred option, all our holidays are run on a fun, no pressure approach to riding. Don’t fancy the guided ride? Just head out on your own with a provided route and vehicle support if required… or just chill by the pool or head to the beach. It’s entirely up to you.
All our holidays take place from our purpose built villa located in Moncarapacho, just 25 minutes from Faro Airport.
