about bml..

Out of António Gavinho’s endless pursuit of adventure, Bike Madrid Lisbon was born.
Around 2005 he started his first tourism organization and has now very well-established brands in Active Tourism in Portugal for incoming visitors.

The Bike Madrid Lisbon’s first draft – Mountain Bike – route started in 2010. For about one year the sketch was drawn, scouted, and tested until finally being presented at the first event in 2011.

Through the Central Range mountains, the backbone of the Iberian Peninsula, privileging the landscapes of greater natural beauty, more and more participants joined every year.
The route evolved and improved, but soon the need for a Road Bike event arose, with many followers asking for it. Since we wanted to include all bike lovers, in 2014 the first Road Bike journey was made.

Nowadays every year we organize Mountain BikeRoad Bike and Gravel Bike (new) bike challenge events for riders all around the world.
The Bike Madrid Lisbon has matured, but is still fresh and young, being reborn in every edition with new participants (or survivors, as we call them), new challenges, and new adventures!
