    This tour is in the truest sense of the word a borderline experience. Because you follow a stretch of about 20 kilometers of the border between the regions of Algarve in the south and Alentejo in the north, which is marked by the small river Ribeira de Seixe, through whose beautiful valley you drive back towards the Atlantic coast.Before that you will once again pedal through the breathtaking hills of the Serra de Monchique and get to know the Fóia mountain from its north side. The road is wonderfully secluded and so winding that it can not be boring for that alone. After a beautiful descent you will reach the upper course of the Seixe, which you follow to Odeceixe.If you like, you can stop here again at the beautiful beach at the mouth of the river or take a look at the windmill that is so typical of the Algarve. Then we go over one or the other hill back to Arrifana.
