Itinerary description

Since in the upcoming weekend I probably won't have the chance to ride, I decided to train yesterday evening after work. I took it a bit more serious than I planned, but no worries :)

Until I have reached Porto, I have done 57k, 750m+ elevation with an average speed of 31,7 km/h. I was pretty much satisfied with this. So I decided to go through the city and relax a bit.

The sunset was awesome, the sky was purple and red, and the city was buzzing. Great experience. The only thing I haven't thought about when I left home, that I am going to arrive at night, so I didn't brought my front light with me. Oppps :)

This route is ideal, if you want to see the river and the ocean side of Porto and at the same time you also enter to the Serras do Porto mountains just in the outskirts of the city.

Are you on holiday in Portugal? Looking for some training or some exclusive rides? I can organize you your holiday trainings in the most beautiful places in Northern Portugal! Send me a private message!
