Easiest route of the Arripiado - Chamusca Cycling Center, that runs along the agricultural paths on the left bank of the Tagus River. The paths are wide, with a good dirt track and without a pronounced unevenness. The landscape is dominated by cultivated fields and the Tagus River. This route coincides with other routes in the center, with different distances and degrees of difficulty, allowing you to choose a different route during the activity.
