Itinerary description

Never ever ever and before I felt like this. I do not know what happened on that day. I was ok more or less until Santo Tirso after that the sufferfest begun.
At the climb in Braga I had to get off from the bike and sit down, I couldn't pedal, I couldn't walk... no comment.

After I have seen hell and been there, I managed to get down from the top of the mountain to the city. We had lunch, a nice "Bacalhau á Baraga" in Braga. Soon I felt better, and I could cycle home.

It is still a mystery to me, what happened on this day :)

Are you planning or already on holiday in Portugal and looking for some outdoor activities? I organize personalized hikes, walks and bicycle rides (cycling and MTB) mainly in Northern Portugal. Please visit my website and contact me for more details! Take care!
