About Algarve Cycling Holidays

Algarve Cycling Holidays was founded by Jerom Pannier; keen cyclist, athlete and professional snowboarder from Belgium.

Jerom's passion for different sports led him to the sports holiday business and he has been organising active breaks since 1998.
After 10 years teaching snow sports in the Alps and travelling around for competitions, Jerom decided to move to the coast.
He has been based in Sagres 'The End of the World' since 2010 and quickly realised that cycling is the best way to explore this peninsula.

Jerom started with Algarve Mountain Biking, which later became Algarve-Cycling-Holidays with the extension of the business to road cycling as well as mountain, and additional packages and accommodation options.

Jerom's professionalism and friendly nature, combined with his expertise and experience in both cycling and holidays, work together to bring clients high quality cycling holidays with a personal touch.

Jerom holds a Masters of Physical Education and Science at the University of Brussels, Belgium and is a speaker of 4 languages - English, Dutch, French & Portuguese

An alternative top destination for mountain biking, away from tourists and blissfully enjoying the tranquility and beautiful surroundings!

Paradise on wheels

Spectacular scenery

The rich diversity of the landscape offers a striking combination, meaning your tours include:

  • Cliffs towering over the Atlantic Ocean
  • Tiny white villages glinting in the distant hills
  • Picturesque little harbours
  • River valleys, hills and streams
  • Woodland, sand dunes, farms and floodplains
  • Wildflower meadows and grasslands meeting secluded beach coves
