ASB entertain group of bikers from Scotland.


On Friday May 18th and Monday May 21st the Algarve Senior Bikers put on two special rides for a group of visiting riders from Scotland.

On Friday the ride started in Paderne and after a long tour through the mountains into the lower Alentejo finished with a superb BBQ lunch including a marvellous selection of desserts at the Cooperativa in Montes Novas near to Baranco Velho.

Stops were made along the way at various viewpoints and for refreshments.

On Monday the ride was from Silves. The route taking in some of the highest roads in the Algarve through the hills in the Monchique area offering great views of the Baragem at Odalouca and the latter part the ride towards the west coast.

Lunch on Monday was at restaurant Sol e Serra in Marmelete. A good weekend enjoyed by all the ASB members and the Scottish contingent who promised to return for more of the same in the future. My thanks go to all the members including Hans, Phil, Peter K, Steve, Ken, Roger, George and Miriam who helped me check out the rides and acted as leaders on both days.

Also for photos provided by John H, Michael, Ken and Bertil.

A great weekend introducing our friends from Scotland to some of the best biking roads in the Algarve.
