Cycling in the Algarve

Algarve Cycling Easter Portugal

Cycling in the Algarve

I just got back from a couple of weeks in the Algarve, Portugal with my family. I took my bike, of course, and managed to sneak out most days for ride of between 40 and 120km.

The tubular tyres used to make the CorsaSC wallets came from the Giant Alpecin ProTour Team (Collected from the mechanic at the Tour Downunder). Each type of tubular tyre has its own look depending on its manufacturing / construction: VITTORIA...

Planning our next cycle tour

Planning a cycle tour is exciting, and it’s always nice to know you have a holiday in the pipeline - otherwise there’s a danger that work can become all stick and no carrot. It will have been two years since my last tour, when 5 of us followed the historic Route des Grandes Alpes. That tour took us due south from Geneva through the high French Alps leaving the Swiss Alps and Italian Dolomites unexplored and perfect for another trip. And this is it. For this tour, we’ll be flying out to Venice and riding more than 1000 km west...
