Re: Route loops back according to website

Try picking up the ACT Portugal for the way back Wow! Nice! Thanks for the tip! Didn't know about this track. Great suggestion. Now for the dilemma, 8 days for the TET, 5 days for the ACT, assuming I can ride the allotted times (I'm fairly new at this, and alone, and a heavy bike), plus I meant to ...

Re: Route loops back according to website

Hi!

Yes, you are correct! 1st version featured that loop but it was decided to drop it in favour of a linear route and due to some issues regarding the tracks themselves.

If you look carefully, the current route is somewhat different from the "western part" of the map on PT homepage...

Cheers

Re: Riding TET Portugal (Southwest part)

Hi! I haven't been down south for some time and can't honestly say what to expect. Last time I did them the trails I was riding a KTM 950 with no issues but after these last rains I don't know what you might expect. A ride report is a nice way of helping others too and, to see great pics :D Staying ...

Re: Portugal end of february-CANCELLED!

That's bad news! Hope your friend recovers soon. Anyway, the country isn't going anywhere soon :mhm Just get the bike and go! Do it in the UK or France or wherever... if Portugal/Spain is the objective, just ride the bike here and (if possible) leave it here for a couple of months and fly over next ...

Re: Some Sctions Tougher Than Others?

So... not wanting to put you off coming to Portugal... Are those the bikes I'd recommend? No! Is it doable with those bikes? Sure! Will it be easy? Hell no! But it's also not a damn Hard Enduro course... (I'd say 10% will be hard but even that can change...) There are some corrections being made now...

Re: Some Sctions Tougher Than Others?

It's true the northern part is harder than the center and south ones. That being said, a lot depends on your definition of "big bike", your own riding preferences and skills, if you'll be alone or in a group and, finally but not less important, weather and road conditions. Answers to those questions...

Re: Portugat TET in April'18

Hi! Expect to find all conditions! Northern part of the TET will give you a lot of rocky trails and some mud, going southwards mud will get more difficult and you'll be greeted by sandy trails. This, if there is some rain on the days before, otherwise it's mostly hard packed surfaces. There are some...

Re: TET .gpx Routes Editable?

Hi!

8 days should be enough to do P TET if you have a steady rhythm, not necessarily a race rhythm though. If you're planning to skip some parts it's impossible to evaluate that...

Re: Portugat TET in April'18

Hi! Not an easy answer... Usually April is a very wet month though it's not unheard of beaches being crowded in some years! It's basically a lottery. Be prepared, bring weatherproof gear and get ready for soggy days. Better safe than sorry... If it's raining it's a 2h road ride from Porto to the nea...
