The Gran Fondo is a cycling event suitable for all levels, ages and goals. Some of these events include long-distance routes in more mountainous areas – ideal for those with more experience in cycling – and others take place on flat terrain, along the coast.
It’s great for those who want to excel, improve their physical shape or simply enjoy the environment and landscapes at their own pace and in the company of friends.
Whether you want an alternative to the standard beach holiday Gran Fondos are an excellent choice and a great way to explore our coast, the mountains in the interior and the historic villages. In Northern Portugal, cycling lovers will find some of the most beautiful cycling routes in the country, a temperate climate and hospitable people, who like to welcome you with open arms.

While it is essential to put the miles prior to the big event, don’t forget to slow down in the final two weeks. Arriving fit is important, but it is just as important to arrive fresh so avoid excessively long hard days in the saddle prior to the event. The inclusion of a few high-intensity intervals will ensure you stay sharp and fresh without accumulating further fatigue.
The nature of the training depends on the terrain covered by the Gran Fondo. Where high mountain passes form a part of the course, training at intensity prior to the event is essential. For those Gran Fondos that take in flat and scenic terrain, then a solid endurance base should be the main focus in training.
7 nights – from 1310€ per person in double room
