Route of moderate skill level in 100% asphalted roads on municipal and national roads with minimal traffic traffic, and a landscape characterized predominantly by cork oak and holm oak, as well as some cattle grazing areas. The main crossing points are the towns of Beirã, where the route begins and ends, as well as the town of Santo António das Areias and Barretos. This route partially 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.
