Cycling Trails

A new opportunity for bike lovers!

If up until now the Historical Way constituted the only opportunity for cyclists, the Rota Vicentina has gone further and started to offer a network of routes dedicated exclusively to bicycles!

There are more than 1000 km of MTB / Gravel trails, a Long Distance MTB Trail and a Touring Bike / Cycletourism path for all those who are looking for nature, adrenalin and a contact with the rural world that is so typical of the Southwest of Portugal.
