Nice report. My wife and me also ride together and that is the best that can happen you. Thanks for sharing.

If any day you want to come to Barcelona or Catalonian pyrinees, you have someone to ride with.

Thanks to everybody

Some more...

On the mountains the tracks turns bit dificult





to ride the 600km on road at the first part of the trip, I put in the lc8 an old KAROO, finally I ride 8 tracks with this wheel, up to today.. two flats and one break of air tube on rear wheel, moment to change....

the old KAROO, for on road..



must change...



to a semi new DESERT



Another flat, this time with desert



Everything is blue



Pretty free camping







this is the entry track to a very good camping, "praia da gale" is in a very wonderful place, on the beach and round by sand forest. near Melides. very awesome.







next some action...

I like sand and in the tracks of the route there is not too much, so we get off the paniers and go looking some sand and fun!!















Fun fun and more fun, GOOOOOO!!!


we meet some animals in the tryp

Those are for "jamon de pata negra", dont know name in english



This is "toro bravo". Brave bull, those are very agressive and dangerous.

Is shut but better in the distance, about 500kg



we eat some very good typical portuges food





The last track



Its time to return home . About 1000km on road.



near home



Finally we arrive at home without problems.

Thank you very much.

Great RR, thanks again-I wish I had your riding skills! Did your wife have any problems with the weight of her bags so far back on the bike?
