Just spent the last 2 hours reading your RR!
After meeting you all in Cepo Verde and picking my bike (the big orange pig that T. kindly brought), when returning to Bragança it rained heavily and got soaked. Soaked with a smirk! Glad my contact had a drying machine. The next morning was returning to Lisbon, and got a lovely 500km ride under heavy rain... kept thinking how much fun you guys would have!
Glad you had a great time!
