Cycling the Camino Portugues: Porto to Esposende

Cycling the Camino Portugues: Porto to Esposende

Early the next morning, I set out from Porto. It’s very simple and you don’t need a map. Just stick to the coast and after the harbour, then the steel bridge, then round about, take the first left.

The route was mostly on board walks and I didn’t need to follow the map, I just stuck to the coast.

My friend for the day was a Polish volunteer who worked in Porto. She had dreadlocks, a rusted bike, no cycle pants (she did have pants) and had made the panniers herself.

The last three hours was in strong winds, which created a bit of a challenge.

I checked into Hotel Miro Rio in Esposende and asked for a take-away beer from the bar. The first thing I did was take a bath while downing my ice cold beer.

I had a great dinner of fish and salad at Restaurante Lima.

I explored Esposende on foot and loved the Farmers Market early on Saturday morning.
