There are four roads which are mainly used for cycling around Comporta, all of which host a number of cyclists who normally ride in packs.
The roads are relatively flat and one only has to take caution with being clearly visible to the passing vehicle.
Parts of some of the roads include purpose-made cycle tracks which offer convenience and security.
Although, we do not hear of many accidents involving cyclists, one must always take care and make sure that one is wearing the necessary garments and accessories.
As it can be quite hot in the summer months, it is recommend that you carry sufficient liquids with you to last for the duration of your journey.
