Join SRAM President Stan Day for an eight-day cycling adventure in Portugal, benefiting the life-changing work of World Bicycle Relief. You’ll get to know one of Europe’s most enchanting countries, all from the vantage point of your saddle. The riding is perfect for this time of the year and the effort is enough to warrant the extravagant meals we have planned – not that we really need an excuse. You’ll sample the best fare that each region has to offer: seafood straight from the ocean, traditional soups and sausages, beautiful broa, which is a traditional bread and world-renowned specialties like leitão, the unforgettable Portuguese take on roast suckling pig.
On this point-to-point odyssey starting in Lisbon, the oldest city in Western Europe, you’ll head south toward Alentejo, and find your way to the countryside for some well-deserved wine-tasting. And after a long day riding and a quite possibly a longer evening eating and drinking, a hand-picked selection of some of Portugal’s finest hotels will ensure that you’ll be relaxed and rested and ready to do it all again the next day.
