Description

Travel the entire length of Portugal on the longest continuous road in the country
The perfect Tour for those who are pretending to explore Portugal and it's traditions, history and culture. One road to ride across all portugal offering an extraordinary diversity of landscapes. 
Known as the portuguese "Route 66" the N2 road is the biggest road of Europe and the world's 3rd biggest and it becomes an international touristic route due to it's history and cultural value. It's the only road to cross the entire country from north to south. It has more than 70 years old and it was in the past called the Royal Road. 738kms is the distance to cover from Chaves in the north of Portugal to Faro in the south of the Algarve region. 
The mountains of Trás-os-Montes, the slopes of the Douro Valey, the hills and rivers of Beiras, the rolling roads of Ribatejo, the unforgettable horizons of Alentejo and the warm Algarve coast are the main ingredients of this cocktail that will show a perfect country for cycling. The course will follow the longest and most mythical road in Portugal (National Road 2). However on some more busy sections of this road, the course leave the EN2 and go on alternative, more interesting, quiet and safer roads.

In the first stage / cycling day you will ride the region of Tras - Os - Montes untill you get to Peso da Régua by the Douro river. Get yourself enchanted with the magnificent douro valleys covered with vineyards that produced the famous Douro and Porto wine.

Day 3 - Viseu and the Chist villages - Termas do Carvalhal / Aguieira - 95km / 1500mts de subidas - 60mi / 5000fts of climbs
The cross of the Viseu council mark this day. The beauty of the city of Viseu will possibly make you slow down to enjoy it. With the city already behind you it's time to ride along Mondego river

Day 4 - From Mondego to Tejo River - Aguieira / Pedrogão Grande - 94km / 2000mts de subidas - 58mi / 6.600fts of climbs
This will be a hard stage in the center of Portugal with constant up & down terrain.  This stage starts with a first rolling section along the Mondego region. Take time to enjoy from the pleasant views. Then it will get harder with long climbs as you pass close to some of the famous and typical villages of this region, the chist villages where houses are built with chist.

The change of the landscape and the terrain is clearly noticeable as you ride south. The mountains, and valleys stayed behind and it's now time to ride flat along long plains and large farm fields. Already in the Alentejo region, you will pass by some of the most characteristic and genuine villages that perfectly represents the habits, customs, people and their traditions of this land.
