Bike trails and cafe hopping in Portugal (Algarve).
It’s a beautiful December day and the tourists have cleared out and gone home (except for the smart British snowbirds).
I hopped on my bike for a glorious, sunny, and fragrant ride through the pine trees on the trails through local beach preserves. This one is a few kilometers long and runs between the beach towns of Monte Gordo and Vila Real de Santo Antonio (VRSA).
I stopped at a few cafes which are set on a raised wooden boardwalk along the beach and then ended up enjoying a perfect sunset and chestnuts (yes roasted on an open fire) in VRSA.
Come along with me on my little journey and I will share with you the beauty and fun in, around and between these two towns.
