Don't get fooled by the pics... Next time we can do those tracks as long as you do all of them! But take this as a warning...

Great pics continue...

Nice to see some shots of the silver coast, and sooooo much nicer than arid espania. Makes me wonder why folk even bother with Spain, but hey, oh... you have to, inorder to get the better bit: Portugal.

A nice afternoon ride.

Moving Time: 2:46:36
Average Speed: 27,74 km/h (17,2 mi/h)

Blurry tree, overexposed sky.... Not one of my best works. I guess I was still shaking from stopping too close to the edge and trying to push the bike while thestand was down.... Most of you must know the feeling when you do this and the stand his the ground... Talk about a long way down... :(


Note to self: Clean mirrors.

Sundowner at Foz da Arelho

You really are getting around on that GS Karbono. You must like it . Nice pictures again. So here's some from me. I am trying out my 20mm prime lense. Not sure I'm making the most of it yet though.

Not a very impressive sunset tonight but the view is always nice. The road to get here is also worth riding whatever the weather



















I was on the Bom Successo side of the Obidos logoon looking across to Foz. This side of the logoon is still very natural, but this is changing fast with the building of another Golf course . This area is great for off roading and walking. I'm sure the golf course will still be fun for riding though

I have really enjoyed your comments and photographs. I will be in Portugal this summer for the first time for a conference and plan on renting a bike in Lisbon and ride north to Braga where the conference is, with a few days to spare for exploring. What a beautiful county you have. Thanks.
