Just had our first Warmshowers guests here in Torres Vedras. Amie (USA) and Olli (Finland) are near the start of an epic 15,000-mile trip from Portugal to SE Asia.
They had a ‘warm-up’ ride from Malaga to Lisbon and then did the official start from Cabo da Roca (Europe’s most western point) near Sintra. After months of drought in Portugal, they managed to arrive in a torrential downpour!
Their project is the International Supper Club – basically an excuse to ride, eat and meet lots of people. Makes perfect sense to me!
Amie and Olli are now heading north and east – towards Spain. Hopefully they’ll report back on their route and I’ll add any advice to what’s already on the blog.
If anyone else out there has ideas or comments on good routes, please let me know: the more advice I can add to this blog, the more useful it’ll be to all your fellow cyclists!
