Alentejo, Portugal.


Some say the fastest and most exciting gravel tracks in Europe are located in Alentejo. However this isn't just about speed. The hills will challenge the participants' climbing skills. Warm/hot weather also plays a role. Along the Algarve, Alentejo is the last (or the first) stage of the European Divide Trail. 


Castro Verde is surrounded by large and protected areas of birds species. The wildlife enhances a special sensory experience through the Alentejo hills and plains. The village is 3 hours away from Lisbon: less than 2 hours by train plus 30km easy bike ride.

applications open soon
