Torrão to Évora – Whoosh!

Well maybe whoosh is a bit strong, but we certainly romped the 45K despite 10K of climbing at the start and arrived to check in at exactly 14.00.  After eight days of cycling we are getting a bit fitter.

We stopped once for coffee and met this amusing pair.

Then it was water stops only as we pushed to get our average up towards 14 an hour well fast for us!

In passing at our hotel we met Cornelius and Marita who had been cycling for 88 days, all the way from their home near Frankfurt. Not only that they were Trans America veterans with all sorts of good tips to share.  Cornelius’s Blog provides a super account of their trip.

Now we have a wee Holiday ahead in Évora and Lisbon to look forward to with time off the bikes. Micro-touring at its best!
