This is a compilation video illustrating the best parts of a 4 day cycling tour on a circuit around Portugal’s mid-Atlantic coast region, which I did with a good friend of mine. The place of departure Caldas da Rainha, which was also the destination.On the way down the coastline, we dropped in at Porto Novo, Ericeira and Guincho. When we reached the very popular coastal holiday destination of Cascais, we headed north back towards Caldas via an inland route that took us through the famous Sintra, as well as a visit to the spectacular Mafra Palace.
The weather was absolutely stunning, the food was superb, and to have the company of a good friend along for this tour was the proverbial icing on the cake. I hope that you’re able to capture even a fraction of what we felt on this ride, at being able to see such amazing places, both natural and man-made. For me, the absolute highlight was experiencing the simply magical, awe-inspiring sunset at Praia do Guincho.
I also hope you like the special cycling song that Pedro and I wrote, Snarky Puppy Roadkill.’, inspired by the many short, but rather sharp uphills enroute.
