    Home sweet home :clap I am really missing it. I am away for a year or so working in the far east. Although I am enjoying the completely different way of life here, it will be nice to get back.
    Thanks for the photo's looks like nice weather :bubba

    Hi there! Being an expat in Belgium, (and not even having my bike with me), it's impossible to update this topic with more of my stuff... But here's a good one from Touratech through the paths less travelled.

    can't properly embed it for some reason...

    My wife is Portuguese and has a lot of family still there. I have been twice and am going back in September. We plan to retire half time in Lisbon.

    Here are a few of my photos of the beautiful country!

    Jim,
    You just made me home sick! And I'm a Brit that moved to Portugal seven years ago!! I have been working out of Hong Kong for the past year. I want to go back and ride my bike around Portugal :D
    Thanks for the pics

    Anybody in the Lisbon area that can please offer me a bit of advice on routes.

    As part of my tour I have a day travelling between Grandola and Tomar.

    Currently I have selected a couple of options

    1) Grandola - Torrao - Montemor O Novo - Montargil

    2) Grandola - Lisbon - Cascias - Sintra - Mafra National Palace - Serra De Montejunto

    What would any of you locals recommend? Do you feel there is somewhere that I have missed or an alternative option?

    Thanks

    James

    James, are you going to be stopping, or just enjoying the view as you ride?
