45th Volta ao Algarve – Lagoa traffic restrictions

The 45th Tour of the Algarve (Volta ao Algarve) attracts thousands of spectators every year.

It is an event of rare beauty, not only because of the setting but also because of the movements and magnificence of the performance by the top-level cyclists taking part. The municipality of Lagoa has, once again, been chosen to host one of the stages of the Tour of the Algarve in Cycling. This year, the Individual Time Trial will take place here, starting and finishing next to the FATACIL enclosure.

And this is the reason for this notice, because the Tour of the Algarve in Cycling is going to be passing by your door. While this means that you will have the chance to see a unique event, it also means that some disruption to traffic is inevitable.

Please note that traffic will be restricted on the roads and at the times listed as the cyclists pass through.
