Stages three and four of inGamba’s Donkey Week were ostensibly the calm before the storm – stage five is a 208km monster – but ended up being two monumental, heroic and outrageously fun days in the saddle.

Day three was “only” 112 kilometres starting in Sertã on a “flat” parcours that had some 1,900m of elevation gain, over a series of seemingly endless rollers. That brought us to Crato, a small town built around a Knights Hospitaller fortress, which we called home for the night.

Our fourth day covered 166km and 2,400m of climbing to Estremoz, a town close to the Spanish border that’s famous for its marble, its black pigs and its castle – where we bedded down after a feast of local delicacies.

These have ben long, happy rides alongside some of the most incredible cyclists – and the nicest people – you’ll ever meet, with the kind of support that would put a lot of pro races to shame. With inGamba, you’re never far from a fresh bottle, a snack or a fast and steady wheel to draft. We believe in riding hard – and making everything else as easy as possible.







When we're riding, only the best is good enough. So we've applied that philosophy to everything that we do at inGamba. Our mechanics and soigneurs have Pro Tour experience and our clothing and equipment are the best that money can buy. Nothing we do or use is left to chance and we've left no stone unturned in our quest to create the most incredible experience possible. Because we know that even the smallest detail can make a big difference.
