    Just got back from a weekend in Portugal where the peg now lives. I took a few photo's and a lot of video so some of this may cheer you up 'cos it's friggin freezing back here in the UK.

    And could see the peg!

    [​IMG]
    And a lot of forest as well

    Nice, show us more. Those mountain photos with the wind turbines looks just like I'm riding here in West Virginia.

    Phil, it's near Santa Comba Dao

    [​IMG]
    Location in Portugal - where the A is, it's mostly euculyptas and pine forests, really nice and the smell from the euculyptas is great.

    The first couple of days riding was near here (Santa Comba Dao)

    [​IMG]
    Spent one day here in the forest/mountains where the wind turbines are

    THis is the forest area 15min ride to the north of where my dad lives, amazing area and some tough climbs, unfortunately my shock was blown at the top of this climb, at the end of the video I'm looking at the oil on the floor and trying to work out where it's coming from.

    Finally got a shock sorted for the one I blew - so that only took about 4 months. Now it's too hot to ride there but I'll be back in Autumn.
