Get back on your bike

A new group aimed at encouraging people back onto the bike saddle has been set up by Activity Algarve.

Organiser Samantha Diamond said: “We feel sure there are lots of people in the Algarve who would love to get back on their bike but perhaps lack confidence so we have started this new entry level ride to encourage them to join in.”

The rides will be taking place every two weeks on a Sunday morning from 9.30am and are aimed at being a great way to get some exercise while also being a chance to make new friends and to socialise.

The first ride will be along a mixture of dirt tracks and mostly quiet roads and will be taking place on Sunday, September 4 with the meeting point being at the Café Rústico Car Park, Fonte de Boliqueime on the EN125 and costs €5 to take part.

To be able to take part in the bike ride all participants must have a clean bill of health and wear a helmet. It is also recommended that everyone brings a spare inner tube and plenty of water for the ride.

For further information about the ride and full location details, please call Samantha Diamond on 914 665 870 or email [email protected]
