Indian Motorcycle has been attending the rally for a number of years now and it has everything you want from a biking festival; hot and sunny weather, sparkling sea, great roads and plenty of live music and entertainment.

24-hour bars – Live concerts each night – Erotic shows each night – Wet T-shirt contest – Bike Show – Trade stands – Biker Fair – Tattoo stands – Tattoo contest – Camping

Indian Motorcycle marketing specialist for Spain, Miriam Torrens says: “The rally has a perfect mix of hospitality, great music, terrific weather and incredible views on rides around the Algarve region. The rally is held just a few kilometres away from the coastline where you can enjoy the best seafood in the region.”

The rally is hosted on recreational grounds just north of the airport (co-ordinates 37 01’28.00”N, 7 58’38.00”W).
