A twisting road with a rapid succession of corners,
physically very demanding if youre a sports rider.
You will start by placing the bike on the right trajectory
for the first and second corners, on the third you will be
a little off the line, by the fourth you wont care about
trajectory or apexes and just cut the corner. Thats because
some stretches have no straights between corners so its hard
to keep a good line.
The tarmac is reasonable with the occasional small stones on
the middle of the road. The camber is accentuated in some
corners, but in the right way.
The road is not very wide and is mostly surrounded by trees
with some places where you can stop for a view of the landscape
high on the Serra do Caldeirão.
Please keep a sensible speed while crossing the villages
on the route.
