The first ride of 2020 for the motorcyclists of the Algarve senior bikers group took place on Tuesday 28th from Paderne.

The two groups where led on this occasion by Steve Wills and David Shirley.

Taking a route through the hills around Alte through Santa Margarida to Messines before heading north on the IC1 to Sao Marcos de Serra. There taking a break just outside the village for a coffee before riding the  curves all the way to Monchique.Then back over the hills on some challenging roads offering some super views to the coast and down past the Odalouca dam to Silves. 

The day usually finishes with a group lunch but on this occasion riders made their own arrangements as a suitable restaurant could not be located due to many being closed for the annual holidays.

The weather was a bit grey and chilly at times but did not spoil a good day out.


First ASB ride of the year.
