Day 11: Cycle from Aljezur to Sagres

Our cycle from the Herdade back to the main road at Aljezur was c8k – a lot up hill, but then we had a rather long and steep (but quick) descent (remembering the steep climb the previous day!)

The journey to Sagres was around 32 miles (a bit longer than we thought) and the whole day was very up and down with long stretches of both uphill climbing and long descents; with long and windy roads through a natural park (with not great road conditions). Vila do Bpo followed, which was another long uphill but then we practically had 8km down into Sagres (note: it follows that coming back the same way tomorrow will be 8km uphill!)
