The main headtrail of the network of cycling routes!
Odemira serves as the central headtrail of the MTB network, containing the main centers of support for cyclists, like the MTB Center of Odemira.
These routes mainly run through rural and forested paths and have several smaller single-tracks. The routes travel through a wild landscape of preserved nature, with minimal human presence.
Apart from the village of Odemira there are also other picturesque locations that are worth a visit, like Pego das Pias, Senhora das Neves, the Mira River and Ribeira do Torgal.
Along the coastline you will find routes that offer stunning panoramas as you pass through Almograve, Cabo Sardão, Porto das Barcas, Vila Nova de Milfontes and Zambujeira do Mar.
