Mira Norte

16 KM

This route starts along the Mira River and, right away, this justifies your choice. The view over the river is wonderful and passes through a wide variety of native vegetation. With the exception of the first kilometre, of short half-sections and the last 700 meters that run on asphalt or sidewalk, the rest of the route follows rural and forest paths, which give you an idea of the importance that working the land has always had in the region. . With a steady rise and fall, this blue course is suitable for people with little experience but some practice. The biggest difficulty is a climb that starts at 3.5 kilometres, with parts slightly above 15%. The most technical section is at 10.5 km and it is a single track descending with some stones, with about 250 meters and average slope of -11%. If you prefer, walk with your bike here.

Warnings

The route crosses and, at points, covers a little of the N120 and part of the town of Odemira, and therefore you may encounter some traffic. Caution is recommended.

A part of the route coincides with the Rota Vicentina walking paths – namely the Historical Way (GR11) – so it is very likely that you will encounter walkers.

The final part of the last descent is on calçada, which can sometimes be very slippery.

Please note that this route does not pass through any location to buy supplies, so you should stock up at the starting point in Odemira.

Points of support: Only in Odemira at the start and finish of the route.
