“An exquisite tour that offers opportunities to ride in different scenarios and visit the Vicentine Coast”

What a ride. I was the one responsible for the choice of this trip for my friends and it was a winner decision. We are all more than happy with the ride and the trip went as smooth as I hoped, putting the pressure on my friend that need to plan the next trip! I wonder if we are returning to Portugal… at this moment I think that is the choice for everyone. Thanks Xplore for making this trip a great time cycling with my riding buddies.
