The first ride of 2018 by members of the Algarve Senior Bikers (ASB) was a short tour to the pretty village of Querença for a coffee at the Café D. Rosa in the square opposite the church.
After a short break, the riders headed north towards Barranco Velho before turning west towards Benafim, then passing through some lovely scenery and down the valley to Santa Margarida on the way to Alte.
Although it was a bright sunny day with some clear distant views from the hills, there was a cold biting wind and everyone was pleased to have the chance to warm up and enjoy lunch at Restaurante O Folclore in Alte.
The ride was organised and led by David Shirley with the help of Joachim Heinsen on his VW trike and Steve Wills. It was good to see Steve returning for his first ride after several months recovering from surgery on his back.
Upcoming ASB events will be announced soon. Watch this space!
