The 22nd edition of the mythical BTT Raid Alvalade-Porto Côvo is scheduled for May 16, 2021.
It was in 1998 that, for the first time, the Alvalade mountain bike group proposed to link the Alentejo village of the municipality of Santiago do Cacém to the sea, with the destination of the tourist village of Porto Côvo, in the municipality of Sines. That wish came true in 1999, and had eighty fearless participants. More than two decades after its debut, it continues to attract thousands of participants and family members to each edition.
The recipe for its success remains the same – the possibility to travel from Alvalade do Sado to Porto Côvo (70 km) or return to Alvalade, completing 120 km.
