EASY RIDE WEST COAST

This is an incredible Cycling Tour over the Atlantic West Coast of Europe! Visit typical fisherman villages with their beautiful beaches and pass by Nazaré, the place where the famous surfer Garret McNamara have surfed the biggest wave ever with 30m on January 2013. Visit Alcobaça, a village where you will find an amazing old Monastery. Stay in wonderful coastal villages of the west coast of Portugal. Finally discover the most well preserved medieval village in Portugal, Óbidos, and feel the history walking on medieval roads pretending that you are in the Middle Ages... a great way to finish this tour! These will be days where you can relax in the swimming pool, go for the SPA, swim on the beach, ride horses, visit some great historical sites, like castles and Monasteries, just relax and appreciate your time here!

Start biking from the center of the village and follow the river Lis that flows out to the ocean… this is the same goal for you today. Ride through the ancient and beautiful pine forest, visit the Ervideira Lagoon and spend some time to appreciate all the activities and the calm waters. After this the ocean will be close and the first sights will be in Pedrogão Beach. After touching the white sandy beach is time to ride along the coast to Praia da Vieira.

On this day you will ride in quiet roads inside the beautiful pine forest and visit the village of Marinha Grande. Here you can find parks, cafés and local shops. From here you will return to the ocean side and finally you will arrive at São Pedro de Moel, a beautiful beach resort from the late twentieth century. This little town, with its sandy beaches and nice walkways on top of the cliffs is a great place to watch the sunset.

Lodging in a great hotel by the ocean with a great lounge area on the roof that can make your delights in the late afternoon watching the sunset on the Ocean.

The journey through the pine forest continues. Following the coast line heading south this day, the riding is done almost completely by dedicated bike lanes with nice infrastructures for bikers. The goal for the day is to reach Nazaré, a beautiful old fishing town that became worldwide famous because during the winter storms it is possible to see  giant waves from the clifftop reaching the North Beach of Nazaré. This is where Garret MacNamara surfed the record breaking wave of 30 meters on January 2013. But don´t worry, all this action happens in the North Beach and the village develops next to this quiet and protected bay to the south of Nazaré. The village is full of different attractions.

This day you will leave the ocean behind and travel along Alcoa River to reach Alcobaça. Halfway in the day there is a little settlement of Valado dos Frades to visit an old train station, famous for its tiles and past winner of prizes of the most beautiful train station of Portugal. Past Valado the river indicates the way to Alcobaça. This charismatic and historical village can offer a wonderful afternoon visiting the town, and relax in one of the several terraces next to the Monastery. Heading to the accommodation there is the possibility to try the swimming pool, SPA.

This day will get you to the coast again. The day starts by descending again to Alcobaça, where you can go your favorite terrace again, and then ride through a soft and quiet agricultural field. Finally you will arrive at the lovely village of São Martinho do Porto, with its incredible ocean bay. Don’t forget to make the passage from the village to the ocean.
