You’ll definitely be challenged with an overall distance of 729km and almost 10,000m of climbing needed to reach our end goal at the resort of Faro.

Arrival / Departure Transfers
We are offering transfers from Porto to Chaves, some 150km away. Porto provides flight options from several UK airports. Our transfer bus will leave no later than 1pm for the 2 hour journey to our starting point at Chaves, so your flight will need to arrive at least 1 hour before then.
For anyone travelling with their bike, depending on the numbers, there may be an extra charge if we need a vehicle with a trailer.
We will happily transport your bike to Chaves and back from Faro at no extra charge. If you drop your bike off at our Sheffield office up to four days before departure we will carefully pack it in the support van, drive it to the start and then return it to Sheffield ready for you to collect.
If that isn’t convenient then depending where you live we may be able to collect your bike on our journey from Sheffield to Dover. Please get in touch with us to discuss arrangements.
