ATTENTION:
Although is not too large, this is one of the most demanding days in physical and technical terms, in both directions, as shown the accumulated. The climb to the Picota, the second highest point of the Algarve is a very hard ascent, coming to the top rocky cluster will force you to have to carry the bike on his shoulders, which make it more difficult this day.
