Beautiful up and along the coast with a fairly flat ride until the last loop where there is 200+ foot climb. This is one of the most scenic rides I have ever been on, absolutely beautiful. There is a quick out and back right at the beginning (or end depending how you ride it) that goes down to the beach called Cova Do VapÃ´r. My suggestion is to ride this late in the afternoon and finish up at the beach for sunset.
Plenty of places to eat and drink after the ride..
