The Challenge

Portugal, especially in its interior, offers a vast network of roads with little car traffic, good pavement and fantastic landscape settings, making our country an exceptional destination for cycling. Its this kind of roads that will mark Ride Across Portugal's® 2023 course, with a varied profile between more mountainous stages and other flatter ones.

The great experience accumulated by the organisation, while organising Volta a Portugal (Tour of Portugal) among other amateur and professional cycling events, allows the choice of a selective route, with passage in some of the best scenarios to pedal in Portugal.

The spectacular landscapes of Trás-os-Montes, Douro Valley, Serra da Estrela, Tejo Internacional and the most challenging and preserved areas of the Alentejo and Algarve will be some of the scenarios found throughout the six stages. of the best and most challenging routes to cross Portugal, from North to South, by road bike.

The end of each stage, located in typical cities and towns, will give us the opportunity to get to know our country even better, enjoying at the end of each day the best that the different regions crossed by the athletes can offer.
