More than 1,000 km to cycle in SW Portugal!
Rota Vicentina premiers its first cycling routes with an official network of mountain biking trails, varied for each specific taste and level of cycling, for a unique experience with nature and the rural, authentic culture of the region.
Rural and hilly paths will take you through breathtaking landscapes and hidden villages, as you bike through the region and meet the locals who know these trails as part of their heritage and home.
At this stage, it is mainly the Municipality of Odemira these routes travel through. The routes themselves are organized into 5 locations, or start points. Since most of the circuits are circular, you can choose any starting point. As several tracks cross each other, you can also easily combine sections to create circuits best suited to each cyclist’s wishes.
The 38 routes are organized in 4 levels of difficulty and always have a defined direction, so that the cyclists can do each route in autonomy and safety. The best time for biking is preferably from September to June.
If you like MTB, then you have arrived to a seaside paradise. Welcome and enjoy your trip!
