What our clients say about us
Alex Zhuravlev
General partner in Mento vc
Transitioning from running to cycling, I faced several challenges, but Portugal Cycling Academy was exactly where I found the help I needed. The Academy's coaches not only adjusted my bike fitting to make it more efficient and comfortable, but they also significantly improved my aerodynamics. Thanks to their professional approach and guidance on pedaling technique, I was able to greatly increase my endurance and speed. As a result, for the first time in my life, I managed to cover a distance of over 100 km with an elevation gain of 1000 meters. This was an incredible achievement for me, and I am grateful to PCA for their support and expert knowledge!

Switching from running to cycling due to a knee injury, I found incredible support at Portugal Cycling Academy. Their coaches improved my pedaling technique and perfectly adjusted my bike, enabling me to conquer a 1000m climb for the first time. This achievement has inspired me to aim for my first GranFondo next year. Thanks to the Academy, I can pursue my passion pain-free and with new confidence. Join me and let's reach new heights together at PCA!
