Algarve Senior Bikers explore eastern Algarve

The forecast of shower and thunderstorm didn’t stop ASB riders from having a great day out in the hills of the eastern Algarve on September 20.   

No doubt those who decided not to turn up due to the weather forecast would have been sorry to have missed a great ride when the predicted showers didn’t appear, and it was warm and sunny all day.

With super views to the coast followed by a nice lunch at restaurant Bela Vista in Odeleite, overlooking the ‘barragem’ (dam), a great day was enjoyed by all the members who managed to arrive home safe and dry.

The two groups were led on this occasion by Phil Smith and Hans Veninga and started near São Brás do Alportel. After heading towards Tavira, they went north across some of the highest hills in the Algarve to the lunch venue.

The next ride will be on October 18 and details will be shown on the website soon.
