Love Tiles Douro Granfondo 2018: a familiar colossus!

On 2018, Love Tiles Douro Granfondo is once again the colossus everybody knows and that year after year has solidified the status of largest and most participated cycling sportive in Portugal. A familiar colossus yet designed with the family in mind.

We added Family as the main theme to the challenge of riding through a world heritage region, following Friendship and Love. The result was the renewed edition of Love Tiles Douro Granfondo 2018.

The largest cycling for all event in Portugal will take the peloton through dream scenarios within the world’s oldest wine demarcated area, familiar scenarios which are renewed in every new glance, in every new pedal stroke.
Starting from Peso da Régua, we will pass by Sabrosa, Alijó, S. João da Pesqueira, Tabuaço and Armamar. And we must climb the Cadão Wall and the Armamar Peak before returning to Régua and to family confort.
Minifondo, with 50 km, Mediofondo, with 114 km, and Granfondo, with 160 km, are the three course distances of the event, as usual. So that everyone may take part in the biggest two wheel challenge together with their beloved ones.

Come to Love Tiles Douro Granfondo and feel in family!
