Register Now for the 2022 Granfondo Madeira Island

The Granfondo Madeira Island is a non-competitive cycling event, organized by Club Sport Marítimo, whilst not competitive in character, it presents a real challenge for any cyclist covering a large part of the North and West Coast of the gorgeous island of Madeira.

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.

Participants will be challenged by the steep climbs and contemplated with beautiful landscapes, either by the sea or by the mountains and rewarded with breath-taking climbs.

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.
