Jovan & Marian Dierkx, Países Baixos
In a country with little more than 570 km long and 160 km wide, at each pedal there is a discovery of new landscapes and environments.
Ocean, Rivers and Estuaries
From the Atlantic to the thousands of rivers and streams, passing through hundreds of dams, weirs and reservoirs, there are many blue water mirrors to behold. And of course, thousands of ocean and river beaches, across the country.
Cities, villages and hamlets
From the great metropolitan areas of Lisbon and Porto to the small towns and semi-desert villages in the interior of the country, each section is a new discovery
Castles and Fortifications
With greater emphasis on the border regions, from north to south it's possible to see military constructions, walled villages and towns, the ancient testimony of wars and political tensions within the Iberian Peninsula
Bike lanes and Rails-to-trails
Several infrastructures dedicated exclusively to light mobility are appearing all over the country. From urban and leisure bike lanes to rails-to-trails - old railroad deactivated sections - there are many ways to travel by bicycle in Portugal
Macadam rural roads
Mostly on macadam, but also on asphalt, these are the "out of traffic routes identified so that you can travel by pedal through the real country, unknown to many and away from large urban areas.
