I am thinking about doing this tour mid to end September.
Just wanted to check if anyone has done Portugal or similar? Recommendations?
I have done the Via de la Plata, southbound, on the Spanish side.
May loop round and do the Trans Andaluz, offroad trail.


  • I hope to set off for a month of touring, next weekish.

    Hearing a lot of negatives about Portugeuse drivers.
    Maybe I will fly to Morocco again and cycle back up to Spain, then do the south coast.

    Just got back from my tour. I heard a lot of negatives about drivers in Portugal. So ended up buying the cheapest Easyjet flight to Spain, which was Alicante.
    Cycled to Sierra de Espuña, where I had (have?) done plenty of mountain biking in the past. Alpujarras - bloody hilly. Rhonda. Seville for the flight home. I wanted to go further but flights double during half term holidays. Great weather as usual.
