The Granfondo Lisboa starts from Praça do Império in the heart of Lisbon and follows the Tagus River before taking a turn onto Avenida da Liberdade at Praça do Comércio. The race tracks north onto Odivelas and continues onto Venda do Pinheiro. Once past Venda do Pinheiro, the route will head off towards Mafra and past, up to the Atlantic coast, in Ericeira. It will then make its way back south towards Sintra, and through the Sintra-Cascais natural park. Upon reaching Sintra, the route will return to the the Atlantic coast via Barril, to then follow the coastline past Guincho, Cascais, Estoril and Oeiras before crossing the finish line located in front of the Torre de Belém.
The three main difficulties of the route will be between Odivelas, Venda do Pinheiro and Mafra with many steep hills to climb. A formidable climb will also await cyclists in Sintra-Cascais Park, just before arriving at Barril.
