Bruno Neves (September 5, 1981 – May 11, 2008) was a Portuguese professional road racing cyclist born in Oliveira de Azeméis. He was one of the best sprinters of the Portuguese peloton, having won one stage in the Volta a Portugal. He was also the winner of the green jersey of the Tour de Avenir, in 2006.

On 11 May 2008, Neves was involved in an accident during the Classica de Amarante, when he was wearing the leader jersey.
