Pedal Portugal

Pedal Portugal was set up to provide free information and advice for anyone interested in cycling in Portugal – whether you’re just thinking about a trip, want ideas for rides once you’re there or suggestions for long-distance touring routes.

In 2016 they launched their own guided bike tours, taking small groups (maximum 10 riders) around some of their favourite parts of Portugal. They also now offer a paid-for route planning service for anyone looking for more detailed, bespoke guidance.

Pedal Portugal was created by Huw Thomas, ex-journalist, author, teacher, gardener… and cyclist.
