AQR AQR COACHING & GUIDING WEEKS 2013 - ALGARVE, PORTUGAL
Every March AQR's Ian & Kate Potter depart their home in the French Pyrenees and head to their favourite winter escape in Portugal - Alte. Here you will discover the rolling hills of the Algarve hinterland and hidden single track beside fresh water streams and through disused olive and orange groves. Ride in the early spring heat and feel the warmth from the sun invigorate your mind, body and soul. March is a great time to escape those concrete trails of life and improve your mountain bike riding along the way.
The AQR Coaching week is one of 6 weeks AQR will be running mountain bike holidays in Portugal. If you can't make the AQR Coaching week, but still fancy some early spring warmth then check out dates below -

"Both Pete and I had an really great week in Portugal which makes getting back into the work routine so much harder and I’ve been totally shattered this week but guess that’s to be expected after such fab week and I don’t think I’ve done that amount of cycling in 7 days the past 2 years!" (Dawn & Pete, 2011 Coaching week)
“It was a really, really, really enjoyable week. It was great to get to know you and Ian a little & see you both in action. I'm inspired to do a hell of a lot better than I was previously. The whole week was amazingly useful. I am really looking forward to putting all I have learned and soaked-up into practice...To become a better all-round rider.” (Anth, 2011 Guided week 3)
“Many thanks to Ian, Kate & Anne and all for a great week of riding, coaching and eating!” (Kirsty, 2011 Coaching week)
“Thankyou so much for an amazing week in Portugal, so many great memories and good friends made.” (Iain, 2011 Coaching week)
“What an amazing place Alte is to ride a bike and enjoy a holiday in the sun during March. The hotel was spot on and both breakfast and evening meals perfect! I will miss Portugese coffee and those delicious fig treats Ian persuaded us to try. I will definitely be joining you both again in 2012." (Kathy, 2011 Coaching week)
