Trails of the Vicentina – São Teotónio –  11th to 13th December 2020

For this weekend we will base ourselves in the beautiful coastal village of Zambujeira do Mar, giving us the best of both worlds. We can enjoy the fresh sea air and amazing sea food offerings, and then we can cycle the small distance to São Teotónio, with its pretty church square, where we will spend the days exploring a range of trails that span the impressive Vicentina Coast Natural Park.

We will guide two different groups along bespoke routes that have been carefully planned according to the group’s general ability. Our rides will take us across fields, through forests, over hills and alongside rivers. We will be covering a lot of ground and discovering breath-taking landscapes, as well as traditional farms and villages.

And the best bit is, you can work totally within your own individual comfort zone. With a range of black, red and blue trails (that vary in difficulty and distance) we can easily put together a varied itinerary. So if you and your travel partner are not at the same level of confidence or ability, it’s ideal. You can join different groups during the day and reconvene at night for a fun evening with the whole group, enjoying the local food and (a little) wine! 

Our itinerary is a guide only. The beauty of this weekend is we can be quite flexible in terms of how long we spend in the saddle.
