The easy answer would be this.

I would probably go for a better known rental company. Perhaps you should try this one.

It's quite close to Lisbon. I've been meaning to ride there for some time. I've been in Sintra on my CB, but I was heading to the South of Portugal, so it was a really short "stay".

You will need to be lucky with the weather. It will be cold, and there should be a couple of days of sunshine, but I wouldn't count on them too much.

I will get there one day, and hopefully talk with Pessoa as well, like Richardo did.



This is probably the easiest way you can get in touch with Pessoa. I doubt he will be very responsive, though

Short late afternoon ride

I wish I left home earlier. These were taken really close to home, but the best light was gone...

Greta pics

A great combination of wonderful scenery and skillful photography!

I'd only suggest you'd put legends on the pics... that way I could try and find out where these places are!

On the other hand, when will you get those tires mud dirty...?

Cheers

The last one is on the way down from Rio Caldo. The others are near Viana do Castelo.

My tyres will get dirty when I find someone to show me some trails... I don't know anything around here... Too much time spent on national roads
