I had been warned off any such trip by an engineer in the marina who told me all Portuguese drivers are crazy and out to destroy cyclists, but I think that is the same the world over and I had no problems.
Day one Wednesday was back across the beasty hills to the north, staying at Ribamar to the north of the surfie town of Ericeira, inspired by son in law (and surfie!)Ollie who had been there.
Thursday I headed inland to Torres Vedras, on a day trip ( up and down multiple smaller hills) which rang bells from history lessons as being important in Wellington’s era.
Today, Friday, started with First Swim in the ocean before retracing tracks back over the hills to Raven.
Some lovely scenery, good to get inland, many vicious guard dogs , friendly people and drivers no worse than
