Earlier in this year we showed you the other side of the Algarve, Monchique style with long descents and epic views, but the Algarve is also well known due to its beautiful beaches and long nights.
This golden Coast it’s a touristic destination but not only for bikinis and Martinis, the singletracks action with the ocean by your side can be a great experience on your mountain bike. Riding on the top of 20 to 50 meters into the cliffs, doing some crazy lines, jumps and drops but all natural. It´s perfect to open the appetite to toast in the hot sun.
The Alvor has a privileged location between the sea and the river bay and there is a untouched place with several lines to ride or even taking a walk with the family .
There are several places to ride along the coast but this one, particularly, is my favorite backyard trail, great to start (or end) the day.
My favorite time to ride this place is earlier in the morning or in the sunset. Just a perfect background with the sun going up or down, you get this amazing light and colors making the trails feel pretty much breathless.
The lines are a mix of super fast flow trials and rocky drops and the level of difficulty equals the power of your legs. The fastest you are, the harder are the trails. This trails are available for everyone and a relaxed ride to enjoy the view and fauna is also a very good program.
Beware of the cliffs, the fall could be very bad and is better if you know how to swim.
Perfect place to explore the local wildlife and some natural obstacles even if they appear strange.
Next time bring your bike and give us a call!
Go outside and ride. Soak up what the nature have to offer.
