Cycling Camps – what can I expect?

We offer cycling camps for cycling teams, groups and individuals in the Algarve, Portugal. Ride the beautiful and challenging terrain of interior Algarve as well as the smooth coastal roads.

Our aim is to improve your physical condition, confidence and overall performance during the training holiday.

Velo Performance will guide you through the very best traffic-free roads that the Algarve has to offer.

Our cycling holidays are guided by Velo performance cyclists and coaches. At your request Velo Performance can provide your training camp with a mechanic, masseur, support car with nutrition and mechanical service, or anything else you might need.


The accommodation that we use is in Alfamar, between Vilamoura and Albufeira on the Algarve coastline. It is a great location, it being only 30 minutes from Faro Airport, with many local amenities close by. This hotel also specifically caters for sports groups, accustomed to their dietary requirements and sports equipment.

For more information see our cycling holiday page.

    I had a great time with velo performance in my time on the training camp, great organisation lovely place to cycle and most importantly, amazing cakes!

  2. Jennifer

    I went on one of the Velo Performance training camps in February – fantastic local knowledge of the best roads (and best cafes)! Terrain to suit every rider and hardly any cars when you get into the mountains. Definitely recommend

  3. Rebecca Johnson

    Can’t express how grateful me and all my teammates are to Iuri for such a great week. Everything was arranged for us right down to the airport transfers making everything super relaxed. I personally have a new max power and feel so much more comfortable descending. Check out the sprint lead out train if you need further proof of Iuri’s expertise

  4. Emma Lewis

    I went on a Veloperformance Training Camp alongside my team mates ahead of the 2018 season. I have often taken myself on my own camps and arranged my own hotel but I must say that Iuri and his team were exceptional. Professional, hardworking and genuine people, with your best training interests at heart. I learnt a lot on this camp and trained hard. But everything else was covered, food, transfers, hotel. All wonderful. I can’t recommend enough!

  5. Rebecca Goodson

    The team training camp that Velo Performance ran for us was just brilliant. Everything had been organised for us. All we had to do was turn up and ride our bikes with Iuri to guide us along the way. Scenic routes, quiet roads. Iuri went out of his way to make sure that everything was spot on for us, and it was. Thank you!

  6. Jess

    Thank you so much to Iuri, Fiona and the rest of the team – an AMAZING week from where I transformed from an ok cyclist to a confident cyclist, who has come home and attacked the roads! Can’t wait to get back to Portugal to perfect more skills!
    Thank you again Velo Performance!

  7. Kevin Sharp

    The time spent with this great team is already showing results the whole experience was excellent!
    Thank you

  8. Pete Williams

    We did a tri camp this March with Velo Performance providing the cycling coaching. Iuri and Fi were fabulous: highly professional and really friendly, you couldn’t wish for more. We did some brilliant rides and some tough trainjng sessions. Can’t wait to go back.

  9. KIRI Wright

    Velo Performance cycle coaching was totally amazing. These guys went above and beyond to give you the best experience of cycling in Portugal, the best knowledge and tips for improving your cycling from the pros, the best encouragement and support and the best experience of cafe stops!! Along with @JanetteCardyFitness the best all round triathlon training and friends ever 😍

  10. Hannah Allen

    My first ever tri camp was such a brilliant experience thanks to Luri, Fiona and the team at Velo Performance- I was only able to stay for half of it but next year I will definitely be doing the full week! Thank you guys! I loved every minute!

  11. Peter

    Great training camp with great coaches in Iúri and Fiona,excellent knowledge of the local area with some fantastic cycling,
    Would definitely come again,for longer next time

  12. Wendy

    Fantastic week training with the Velo Performance team. Good varied programme covering all aspects of cycling. They were very flexible and catered for all the different levels in our group and had back up support for each ride. Highly recommend.

  13. Natasha Ellard

    Thank you so much to all the team at Velo Performance. I had an amazing time, gained so much confidence and learnt a huge amount. Already had the chance to put it all to good use in my first race of the season!

  14. Lisa G

    As a seasoned “Training Camp” attendee I had a good idea of what to expect when we arrived in Portugal. However I was simply blown away by the experience I had with Yuri and Fiona. Not only is the scenery amazing and the variety of rides (from very challenging mountain days to rolling coastal spins),I also benefited it from one to one coaching from an actual “pro” and by the end of the holiday my descending and cornering had improved 10 fold, unbelievable!!
    The team at Velo are passionate about what they do and that really shows, we were looked after so well and there was nothing that hadn’t been thought of on terms of customer care.
    The hotel is perfect for this type of trip with great food and comfy beds and the location is ideal . The guys were able to adapt the routes to cater for any change in conditions , an our group of mixed ability cyclists became great friends and were able to push ourselves whilst enjoying the rides together.
    Nothing was too much trouble for the team. I can honestly say this is the best value, most organised trip I have been on with the most welcoming, experienced hosts you could ask for. You HAVE to get on one of their camps!!!

    What a fantastic week!!!!

    This was the first time Caroline and I had joined a training camp, so we were uncertain what to expect.

    What we got was a great week’s cycling led by Luri and Fiona with a group of cyclists who were absolutely great both in their friendship but also support.

    Hotel accommodation was ideal for cyclists with good food, large rooms, comfy beds and we were able to keep bikes in the room which takes the worry out of storing them out of sight.

    Rides were challenging, interesting and varied supported by Luri and Fiona who were happy to share their considerable experience and professionalism.

    Veloperformance is in our calendar for 2019 and we can’t wait to return

    A fantastic week despite the weather not being at its best!

    Great rides and support all week, I’ll be back next year for some more and hopefully better weather!

    Well doing Iuri and Fiona 👍🏼

    Excellent training camp / cycling holiday in the Algarve.

    Veloperformance organised an excellent week of riding along scenic routes on quiet roads in the Algarve. Iuri and Fiona provided great support and made this a memorable week. Their local knowledge allowed for routes that catered to riders of a range of abilities. One of the best organised trips I have been on.

    Will be back in 2019!

  18. Rudy Pedri

    Just arrived back from a fantastic week of cycling in the Algarve. Head coach Iuri, together with business partner and co-host Fiona, were keen to ensure that everyone had an enjoyable holiday. Coupled with the quiet roads, challenging hills and good weather, they succeeded on every level. Thank you.

  19. Karl (verified owner)

    Veloperformance training holidays in the Algarve provide a great base to your training or final preparation for your events. Iuri Jorge plans each of the rides to suit your training level, abilities and goals. Rides are led by himself or one of his team on the quiet well maintained roads of the Algarve. I can highly recommend Veloperformance for coaching and trips!

  20. Dennis K.

    Just got back after an amazing experience with velo performance! Brilliant rides and coaches!
    They made us suffer in a good way and I’ll be back for some more for sure !

  21. Rudy

    Had such a good time when last here in April, that I came back for more in October. Thank you to Fiona, Iuri and the rest of the team at Veloperformance for another faultless effort.

  22. Richard Burnham

    Just had a fantastic week with VP. Everthing off the bike was taken care of so we could spend more quality time on it. The roads were quiet, the weather was warm & sunny. The team were brilliant tailoring the rides to what we wanted and making tough rides fun. I fully recommend a week with Velo Performance as a training camp!

  23. Phil Tilley

    Thank you Luri and Fiona, everything went so smoothly so we could get on and ride. Felt truly challenged by the rides and much stronger for it. It was a pleasure to ride with you and learn from real pros. Would recommend to any keen cyclist

  24. Tim Morris

    Wow, what a week. Fiona & Iuri-thank you so much. I rarely write reviews but felt I had to following a fantastic training camp with Velo Performance.
    A group of us from Monmouth Tri club have just had a week training in Portugal and it was fantastic; from our initial enquiry, booking, through to a weeks training on great roads and routes. What really made the week standout from other camps was the way Fiona, Iuri and their team welcomed and looked after us – totally awesome. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were all over everything, we just had to train, the rest was taken care of. Would I recommend- definitely, will I book again with Velo Performance – definitely.
    What did I get out of the camp? Exactly what I wanted, hard sessions that pushed and improved my fitness and ability; fun and lots of laughs – we definitely had this; advice and guidance-definitely got this.

  25. Minh

    We enjoyed a lovely week in the Algarve – would most definitely be back. Iuri and Fiona were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. They have a very good set up and provided some very good advice for places to visit whilst we were there. It’s an excellent base for cycling, running, swimming and walking. Highly recommended.

  26. Mark Lewis

    A brilliant week organised by Velo Performance. Luri and Fiona made us feel extremely welcome, and were incredible guides. The routes were veried and taloured to what we fancied. They are both great cyclists and helped, coached and supported us through the rides going over and above to give us a great holiday. Fiona’s swimming coaching was really useful and will definitely help my speed. The Algarve is a hidden cycling gem.

    A great week and couldn’t recommend the trip enough.

  27. Audrey Kellar (verified owner)

    Great week cycling with Iuri and Fiona, they have managed to get that perfect balance between professional and fun. Always felt safe, cycling was great, bike hire all organised, perfect. I rarely go on the same holiday/camp twice, there are other places to see other companies to try but I will definitely be back to see Luri and Fiona. Thanks for a great week.

  28. Louise Hart

    What a fantastic camp! We had the most amazing week being shown the Algarve by Fiona and Iuri. Their organisation was brilliant not to mention their flexibility over rides enabling us to split occasionally to suit everyone’s requirements. The routes were well planned and the communication by the guides excellent. Both Fiona and Iuri were extremely helpful when it came to the odd mechanical issue and even drove out with a spare tyre on one occasion.

    This camp is not just a holiday, racers I encourage you to go too. The Algarve may not be as famous as Majorca but the quiet roads, amazing scenery and great Pastel di Nata make it well worth it! It’s also definitely not flat as I assumed as we flew in…

    If you want a great training camp look no further!

  29. Emma

    I had so much fun on my training camp with Velo Performance! The riding is so nice in the Algarve, but having people who knew the roads (and cafes, stops, etc) really well was invaluable! This was important not only for an enjoyment standpoint, but also a safety one.

    There was a lot of variety in the terrain: some long climbs, some shorter but steeper climbs, rolling ones, and some flatter roads, and this made it exciting every day.

    The VP staff made me feel comfortable, welcome, and safe. I would definitely recommend booking a training camp with them!
