Bike ride: The best place to cycle around Porto!
A bike ride in Northern Portugal can be magical and refreshing. During spring, this region awakes with beautiful colors and a new buzzing energy. The appetite for surf grows back and our bodies beg for a yoga session. And it is more than that!
The climate during March and April is comfortable, between 18 ºC and 26 ºC. The sun is shining and the days are getting longer and warmer. It’s an excellent reason to get our colorful mountain bikes out and pedal along the Atlantic Ocean under a deep blue sky.
We all know how surfers love to be in the water and yogis on their mats. Also a bike ride connects you with Nature and balances your spirit. We have brand new mountain bikes waiting for you at Golden Waves! And yes, they’re for free!
Bike ride, a perfect way to indulge your senses!
There are several stunning cycle trails that pass through some of the most beautiful and unique landscapes in Northern Portugal. From Furadouro to Cortegaça, you’ll cross 10 km of lush pine forest along the Ocean: the Natural Reserve of Maceda. It’s time to relieve stress and energize your body.
Explore landscape art award winning Buçaquinho Park and the well preserved eco system Lagoon Ria de Aveiro with its famous flamingos.
The best way to discover these unique landscapes is following the well marked trails and wooden walkways over the dunes.
If you’re fit enough, head south to Sao Jacinto and the virgin Sand Dunes Natural Park. You’ll ride about 1 hour until you reach this paradise on earth.
Take a ferry-boat from there to Aveiro and explore the so called Venice of Portugal.
On the way back, don’t miss the chance to click with the Portuguese way of life. Stop for a snack or drink in one of the many cafés and bars and exchange some words with the locals.
By the way, you don’t need to be very experienced to enjoy this bike ride! It’s all about having fun and stay tuned with Nature. You’ll get more relaxed and energetic for sure. And, if you’re brave enough, you can go for a swim in one of the beautiful beaches.
