Register Now for the 2021 Granfondo Madeira Island

2nd edition confirmed to take place Sunday May 23rd around the beautiful Northern shores of the Portugese Island of Madeira

Granfondo Madeira Island is a non-competitive cycling challenge organized by Club Sport Marítimo.

An overseas territory of Portugal, Madeira lies some 1,000km off the coast of Europe and 500km off Morocco. It’s 400km north of the Canary Islands.

Madeira is at its finest between April and October, when the coastline is positively teeming with up to 20 species of whales and dolphins. Madeira boasts a pleasantly mild Mediterranean climate year round, so the best time to go is whenever you're free.

Aimed at amateur cyclists, the route will cover much of the North Coast (São Vicente, Porto Moniz) and the West (Calheta and Ponta do Sol) of the Island. It starts and arrives in São Vicente and climbs up the highest plateau on the island of Madeira, located 1,580 meters above sea level, Paul da Serra.

All participants will be challenged by the steep climbs and rewarded with beautiful landscapes of across the mountains to the sea.

After the success of the 1st edition, the organizers have prepared a wider range of activities to make it a memorial experience for athletes and their families including a bus tour to the North Coast on May 22nd, visiting the Natural Pool of Calamar and also the Caves of São Vicente, two unique wonders of nature on the Island.

There is the traditional Madeiran festival after the Granfondo which will provide regional skewers, bolo do caco and drinks. All athletes and their families are invited to celebrate after an action packed day of cycling.

All participants will be challenged by the steep climbs and rewarded with beautiful landscapes of across the mountains to the sea.

Madeira has direct flights of around three to four hours from several UK airports. You can also fly via Lisbon, with TAP being the airline with the most frequent services to Funchal’s airport.
