Route of moderate difficulty that crosses one of the flatter areas of the municipality, with open landscapes and dominated by the sparse cork oak and holm oak. The degree of difficulty is attributed essentially to the distance covered, as the rural paths are wide and with a floor without steep slopes and with great fluidity throughout the landscape. The main point of passage is the village of Grandaços, where there are support services such as cafes, fountains and public toilets. This route coincides with other routes of this Cycling Center, with different distances and degrees of difficulty, allowing you to choose a different route during the activity.
