Distance 81.6 km
The longest route of the network, of high skill level, it starts towards "Alto da Serra de São Mamede", later returning to the foothills on the other side, where it goes left to the north towards "Porto Espada". Here you go up to "Serra da Selada" to cross it towards "Portagem". In "Portagem" there are already routes of the cycling network of Castelo de Vide and Marvão. The route then continues until Carreiras by rural dirt and tar roads in a degraded state of conservation. In Carreiras go south and turn right at "Rua do Cigano" after the fountain. Arriving at the intersection, turn left and continue on dirt until "Fonte de Sapo". In rainy conditions the terrain here is heavier and makes it difficult to progress. The route crosses the N246 and follows its almost parallel up to "Peninha". In "Peninha", the route follows the N18 to go up to the Chapel of Nossa Senhora da Penha. Go to the "Fortios", make a small loop and resume the road leading to the Chapel of Our Lord Jesus of the Afflicted. Continue on this road and then turn left and go to the Bullring of Portalegre. Then follow the road behind the Polytechnic Institute of Portalegre, until you cross the IP2, following through the urban environment to the Cycling Center.
