A relatively small country in the extreme south-west of Europe, Portugal is off the beaten track and often overlooked by cyclists. However this very much stands in Portugal's favour. With a population of just over 10 million there are plenty of open spaces and get-away-from-it all places - with some exceptions. During the summer, the Algarve in particular, sees a big influx of tourists and the large cities of Lisbon and Porto have many of the usual big city cycling issues.
Portugal has quite a varied landscape with the terrain ranging from plains in the south and along parts of the Atlantic Coast, to rocky shores, beaches and mountains.
