N247 : Cascais - Cabo da Roca

Central Portugal > Portugal > Europe
March 2, 2006 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.2

Turn right outside Hotel Baia and head towards Guincho keeping to the Coastal road. Great road with Ocean on your left heading towards Guincho beach. Surface is good, with fast sweeping corners. Once you have passed the beach you enter a woody section which begins your ascent to village called Malveria da Serra surface is good but corners are tighter. As you enter village turn left and follow signs to Cabo da Roca. This section continues rising and as you leave the village the views are fantastic and the road has some great turns where you can put you sliders to good use if you dare! The local bikers all come out along this section to Cabo da Roca every Sunday morning and on sunny days in the summer kids line the road to watch all the bikes. After a few miles watch for left turn on a corner, caution! Proceed into Azoia village (avoid restaurants here as are tourist traps) then follow signs to Cabo da Roca which is the most Westernly point of mainland Europe for a coffee at the bar/restaurant. During the summer can be very busy at weekends so midweek morning best time to go as it is cooler too.


N379 : Cotovia - Setúbal ( Arrabida )

Southern Portugal > Portugal > Europe
April 24, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

A very nice road at Arrabida Natural Park between Sesimbra and Setúbal. At 38º27'39''N 9º0'38''W two roads are possible to reach Setubal, by the mountain(front)or near the sea (turn right). For this route I choose the 2ª, the ride is more pleasant near the sea. Sometimes it is possible to see dolphins. Driving on this road is very cool, the surface is generally good with good corners. A good 35 km's ride.
