Three lovely bicycle tours in central Portugal

Around the Ecopista do Dão

Abelenda Bike Rental has elaborated three beautiful circular cycle routes in this part of Portugal.
The Ecopista do Dão is always part of the routes, but only for a few kilometers.
You will cycle on country roads with very little traffic and some times on unpaved roads, passing little hamlets and villages, wineries, woods and rivers in a beautiful landscape.
An excellent way to explore the country.


While cycling on the Ecopista is very easy, these three bike rides are more difficult, because you have to go up and down several times, sometimes on unpaved roads.
But it's definitely worth it.
We recommend a good bike, preferably a mountain bike and a helmet.
