Donkey week returns to Portugal for 2017 and we believe this is one of the best weeks of Mangia, Beve and Bici we have on our calendar. The itinerary is gruelling, but if your motto in life is “Go big or go home,” then this is the trip for you.
Not sure if you are a Donkey? Well, if you are a hard-charger or at least aspire to being one, then Donkey Week is right up your street. We will do plenty of miles, with some of the best climbing Portugal has to offer and we will be going out of our way to hit all of the best “Portuguese rollers”. And rest assured, your time off the bike will be spent indulging in some of the best meals, finest wines and coolest accommodations Portugal has to offer.
And just like in years past we will be calling this a Randonnèe, although we will not be moving every night which will allow us to take in the best routes in the best parts of the country. So if you’re looking for some early season miles with a pack of animals, it is time to sign on the dotted line.
