Volta Pro Tours offer guided luxury cycling holidays in Portugal, and they've teamed up with us to offer one lucky reader an expenses paid weekend away.

The newly established cycling tour company is the brainchild of Adriano Placidi, a passionate cyclist who fell in love with the Portuguese cycling experience and wanted to share it with others.

In their inaugural year, Volta Pro Tours are offering four unique and tailor made experiences - including a women's only 'Grand Tour Alentejo', a 'Grand Mountain Tour' over some of the most notable climbs in Europe, and the 'N2 Challenge' which takes place over the longest road in Portugal - a real test of attrition at 500 miles over five days, supported by professional rider Yanto Barker.


All tours feature vehicle support, and Team Volta's pro mechanics and soigneurs are always on hand throughout. Accommodation includes some stunning hotels, with equally impressive restaurants offering fine local cuisine.

Our competition winner will be able to ride on any event in 2017, but most relevant to Total Women's Cycling readers is the 'Women's Grand Tour Alentejo' - taking place between September 29 and October 3.

Here's a taster...

A place on this tour means the opportunity to live like a pro - and all rides will be led by none other than Portugal's triple National Champion, Daniela Reis.

The tour consists of five stages - with rides ranging from 50 to 65 miles. Not only will riders have the chance to drink in the stunning scenery and sail over the smooth roads and climbs, but they'll be able to learn skills and technique from Reis along the way.


Whilst some of the tours Volta offer move between locations, this holiday is entirely based in the Alentejo Marmoris Spa Hotel. Professional masseuse and physiotherapist to OnePro Cycling Team, Kyle will be on hand after every mile munching day, to make sure hard working muscles are repaired for the roads ahead.

Each ride will be followed by a post ride buffet, a selection of off-the-bike activities, followed by fine dining and an evening briefing.


The winner will receive a weekend trip, including flights and transfers - though of course there is still time to sign up for the full experience here.
