Circular route of accessible skill level that extends to the village of "Esperança", and then passes "Nave Fria" and "Mosteiros". It starts on the road at the entrance to the Cycling Center, which has some traffic, but soon from "Esperança", it goes on secondary roads. From here the roads are narrow, with a medium pavement and without any pronounced unevenness. The main crossing point is "Aldeia da Esperança" where you can find various support services such as cafes, water points and toilets. The landscape is dominated by the cork oak and holm oak, with also extensive grazing area, both for cows and sheep. 80% of this route also coincides with other routes of this Cycling Center, with different distances and degrees of difficulty, allowing you to choose to extend or shorten the circuit to be followed by a different route during the activity.
