Ok, no idea on road bikes, but if you do any MTB I recommend 'The Mountain Bike Adventrue' especially the shuttles he does, 10k downhill!

On road riding, you can make a good 100k day riding to the Cabe Di San Vincente (westerly most point of continental europe) and back, there is a hard to follow back lane route (the Eco via do algarve) but it was very hard to follow when I did it, there's a pretty straight highway out and back with plenty of climbing/coffee/ views, possible by visiting the villages on the coast road, Burgau in particular...

Have a great trip!

Riding up Monchique (tarmac to the top) is as bigger climb as you'll find in the algarve too.
