Mountainbiking

Centro de BTT

Portugal's first official mountainbike centre, the Centro de BTT, is located in the naturepark Serra d'Aire e Candeeiros.

There are 7 routes in the area, varying in distance and difficulty. The total length of the tracks is 265 kilometer. It's possible to combine several routes, or to switch from one route to another during your track. All routes cross nature and the best places in the area, where you can also have a stop for something to eat or drink.

The mountainbike center is located next to the ecological park Pia do Urso, in the Serra d'Aire e Candeeiros. There are changing rooms with showers available, but there is also room for cleaning your bike or do some small repairs. There is plenty of parking space around the center, and there is a restaurant and cafés at the ecological park.

The center makes sure the tracks are checked maintained throughout the year.

Cycling

Lots of cycling possibilities

Although the Portuguese are not very keen cyclists, the number of cycling paths is increasing and the government is working on the promotion of cycling.

If you would like to explore the area by bicycle, you can contact for example Buka Bike, or Bikerent Silvercoast. You can pick up the bikes at their place, but they also deliver the bikes at your holiday rental.

At BikeIberia you can rent a bicycle for the whole of the Iberian peninsula. Please make sure you make your reservation at least 72 hours before rental date.
