There have been always trails used by messengers, warriors, farmers and shepherds and we will follow them between Évora and Monsaraz! Away from the tarmac we will ride trails in a way that no one does anymore. People are living their lives and going about their duties in their old way: apparently not impressed with modern lifestyles. Our helmets and bike gear will get some curious but friendly looks! The ride's length is the main challenge; technically, the most interesting and difficult portion will be the last four miles down to the River Guadiana — a fast downhill over slate!

Your Itinerary:

Day 1: First ride, easy to moderate with 85% off-road, we will leave Évora to see a host of enchanting villages such as N. Sra. de Machede, then following the trail to a recently restored watermill. Begin: Évora. End: Restored watermill. Length: 40 km/24 miles. Level: Easy to moderate (due to its length). Terrain: 85% Off-Road. Double track and dirt roads. Highlights: River Degebe valley. Optional tour to a local traditional leather processing unit. Overnight camping by a restored traditional watermill. Plenty of wild life among with farm cattle. Evening fishing possible!

Day 2: Another easy to moderate, 95% off-road ride. Monsaraz is a solitary place of privilege for those seeking beauty and peace, appreciated for the genuine mediaeval atmosphere.
