A gorgeous day is awaiting you! You will ride in the true countryside of Portugal by a landscape of cork trees, olive groves and flocks of sheep! Admire the beautiful water of Albufeira de Vale do Gaio just as you leave and follow the trail of picturesque villages painted white to reflect the heat in the summer months. Enjoy your rest at your hotel and don’t forget to reward yourself with a delicious meal for dinner.

 

 

 

Today you start by the sea, but soon go inland where a different scenery shows up. Typical villages, white houses with red roof and beautiful countryside will invigorate you! By incredible valleys of limestone with vibrant green Mediterranean vegetation you will approach your final destination – Ericeira, the Portuguese Mecca of Surf. Ericeira is also one of the most beautiful fishing villages and will be your home for the night.

 

 

On the last day of biking cross the hills to the top and get involved by the mystic environment close to Franciscan Capuchin Convent installed in the rock and lined with cork. Continue riding to the Atlantic Ocean and get to the most western point of continental Europe - Roca Cape, a promontory rising 150m from the sea. Discover impressive beaches nestling between cliffs artistically sculpted and finish in a scenic easy ride along the coast to get to Cascais, a lovely town on seaside.

Évora is classifed in UNESCO’s International Heritage and has 2000 years of history, but after a late breakfast it is time to explore the surroundings. Soon you will arrive in Arraiolos noted for its colorful, handstitched woolen tapestries. There must be one that fits in your living room back home! This is the last day riding so take the opportunity to celebrate with some portuguese wine. Saúde!
