Route of moderate skill level, that covers the rural paths in the surroundings of the village of Almodôvar. The degree of difficulty is attributed essentially to the distance covered, as the paths are generally wide and have a good terrain. The paths are mostly dirt and without pronounced unevenness, with some asphalt sections on secondary roads and with little traffic. The landscape is dominated by cork oak and holm oak and the main crossing points are Monte das Mestras and Curvatos, where there are support services such as cafes 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.
