Distance 20.5 km
Low skill route with a tennis racket shape. The route goes, for the most part, through a busy road until you reach "Esperança", following then secondary roads and roads with a lower volume of traffic. Apart from the road where the route starts and ends, the roads are narrow, with good pavement and without any pronounced unevenness. The main crossing point is the "Aldeia da Esperança", where there are support services such as cafes, water points and toilets. At the entrance to the village, there is a dirt road that leads to "Hortas de Baixo", passing the Rock Art, which are found south of the parish. This route also coincides with other routes of this Cycling Center, with different distances and degrees of difficulty, allowing you to choose to extend the circuit to follow a different path during the activity.
