#2 CROSSING THE SW OF PORTUGAL BY TOURING BIKE
SELF-GUIDED TOURS by BICYCLE
The Holiday allows the cyclist to discover the best of both worlds available in this part of Alentejo, once the stages/routes will mix a great variety of landscapes.
Starting pedaling inland will provide many opportunities to explore the countryside places and towns, using undulating secondary asphalt roads.
By the Coast, the cyclist will be surprised by the Atlantic views and stunning beaches along the coastline. Cycling inland or by the coast, gastronomy, and wines will be always a highlight (seafood, fresh fish, and black pork).
The region is also extremely popular during Summertime, because of beaches and Surf, but there is much more to explore behind this idyllic scenery and cycling this area will allow the cyclist to build an all-new experience out of that period/season, having the same feeling of locals that live there all year!
The experience will be full of natural scents, flavors, and new friendships, creating memories about a part of Portugal that is loved by all but that seems forgotten during all year.
