What you'll do

After a brief introduction about the use of the electric bikes and the total track of about 60 kilometers, we will jump right into the cycling tour starting in Silves countryside. Gently cycling among the orange groves, cork and almond trees, I will tell you more about the rural side of the region, its genuine people and their traditions. You will learn why figs, almonds, carobs and olive trees have always been so important for the region. Passing through the small white-washed villages we will then stop for a traditional lunch in a local Taberna, where you will taste a delicious lunch in a friendly and informal location. After this stop we will visit the cozy village of Messines and its unique cobble streets.
Cycling on our comfortable power assisted bikes, I'll guide you to an amazing hidden lake where we will stop to contemplate the inland Algarve in all its beauty.
It's time to go back where we started, but the memories of this unique landscape will stay with you forever!
Other things to note

I'm the owner of the B&B Gato Preto located in Silves, right in the center of the Algarve. Me and my wife, we fell in love with the unspoiled side of Algarve in 2012 and decided to refurbish an old ruin and start a new adventure here. Since we moved to Silves, we spent many day trips cycling and walking across the small villages and the amazing landscapes still well preserved from the mass tourism of the coast. During the last 5 years, we learned a lot about the nature, the food and the people of this unique area called the "Barrocal" so today we are happy to share our passion and knowledge with our guests.

Where you'll be

We will visit many small villages connecting the inland Algarve around Silves. I will guide you off the beaten track but always on good conditions roads, through the orange groves along the path known as the "Algarvian Way". We will stop for lunch in a traditional Café and then visit the cozy village of Messines. On the way back, a fantastic hidden lake will reveal its unique landscape.
