Activity Algarve Bike Rides

We managed a good ride on Sunday from Guia for Evelyn's farewell ride, and the weather certainly warmed up. In fact the weather forecasters predict that we are in for a spell of dry and warm weather, so we should have ideal cycling weather for the next few rides.

Now is a good time to get going again if you haven't been out on your bike for a while !
