Its beaches bounded by the magnificent cliffs that stand watch over the ocean, the western Algarve attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every year, and offers an array of irresistible options for cycling enthusiasts. The lively Praia da Rocha beach is the starting point of a route that brings together marine ambience and rural atmosphere. After crossing the peaceful waterfront zone in the city centre, continue on to Rasmalho, heading towards Senhora do Verde. Here, in the heart of the municipality’s hinterland, you ride towards the Algarve International Motor Racing Circuit and then embark on a slightly undulating stretch that ends at a narrower road where you need to pay quite close attention to the road surface. On the way back, ride to the Arão Stream, going around the Bay of Alvor.
