Highlights include a scenic ride through the dunes of the Sao Jacinto Natural Reserve and an overnight in the picture-perfect fortified village of Obidos.
After a week of cycling and plenty of free time to enjoy some of the best beaches and restaurants of Portugal, a full day is dedicated to the visit of Lisbon, one of the most charming capital cities in the world. The tour runs from Porto to Lisbon.
This trip is classified as Road and level 2 (leisurely/moderate) with an average daily distance of 52km (32miles) and a leisurely pace of approximately 9-13 km (5.5-8 mi) an hour. Cycle paths and quiet roads are used where possible. The first three rides are shorter, mainly flat and easy and on Day 4 the ride is longer and more hilly. The ride on day 6 has the most ascent as the terrain changes, but the pace will be slow and with plenty of coffee and cake stops. A support vehicle (with limited seats) is available throughout the trip, it will not be able to follow the group at all times but it will meet you at the end of cycle paths and at junctions to give route directions and allow access to any items you don’t wish to carry on the bike.
