NOT EASY, BUT DEFINITELY NOT AN HARD TOUR. PERFECT SOLUTION FOR BEGINNER MOUNTAIN BIKERS INTERESTED IN AN EASY TOUR WITH A MODERATED UPHILL ACCUMULATION.
The tour starts close to Abrigo do Pastor (Alt.1150m), and feel minutes later we start our main climb, inside Montado do Pereiro forest park, it´s more or less 5 km and 250 meters of uphill accumulation. Moments later and after the guide's suggestion based on the skills of the riders, we have the possibility to ride in some easy single trails until we get to the 'levada' (water-channel). From here (Alt.850m) it is a 20km relaxed ride along the 'levada' where we will be surrounded by a beautiful mixture of laurel, eucalyptus and pine trees. Near the village Camacha we stop for a cold drink and a light lunch in a very typical bar. After the stop, we continue our 'levada' that crosses through the colorful village of Camacha, before we start our final ride with more or less 10km of smooth road, all the way down back to the Lokoloko shop, that only requires the effort of fingers on the brakes, but always with a big view over the ocean.
