High skill level route of the Arripiado Cycling Center - Chamusca, attributed mainly due to its distance and positive accumulated height. The main crossing points are in Vale Cavalos, Chouto and Semideiro where you can find several support points. This route is also characterized by passing through different types of landscape, from the Ribatejo hills where the cork oak predominates, as well as other forest areas and agricultural areas.
