Mountain biking, Rides & Routes

Mountain biking

CicloviaI’m not a mountain biker so the touring routes and day rides listed on this site are predominantly aimed at road cyclists like me.

However, mountain biking (BTT as they call it here) is very popular in Portugal and – not only are there plenty of mountains – but there are also lots of routes out there.

I recently discovered the Ciclovia website, which has an extensive list of all kinds of cycleways – from town centre circuits to longer routes like the Ecopista do Dao mentioned in the last post.

It also has a list of BTT routes – and maps. To take a look, click on the Ciclovia site and scroll down. Click on the individual names for more details – there seem to be links to Google Maps for all the rides so even if you don’t understand the Portuguese it should make some sense!
