This tour by flat terrains is our easiest one. With routes by the ocean side, you have the chance to enjoy the west coast sunny beaches, stopping in one beach bar terrace for a coffee or tasting a grilled fresh fish lunch. Ride along Douro River until its mouth.
Then you will head south along the coast, mostly on bike paths, with beautiful sandy beaches on your right. During this ride, you’ll have plenty of places to stop and enjoy a traditional Portuguese meal or just to have a drink looking at the Atlantic Ocean!
At Miramar, you will be able to see a small and intriguing little chapel built on the top of a rock situated right on the shoreline. This Chapel has amazing views both out to sea and to the white sandy beach stretching in front of it. With a hexagonal design, it’s called Senhor da Pedra (Lord of the Rock). It was built in 1686 and restored in 1996.
At Espinho, a cosmopolitan holiday resort with beaches and a Casino, you can continue on a cycling path along the pine tree forest to Furadouro beach, cycling the final 21 km. You have also the option to take the train to Ovar and there riding 6 km more to get your final destination, the Furadouro beach.
You will then pedal towards Ovar train Station and back to Porto city by train. (You can take the bicycles in the train).
