Hi! My name is Eduardo Abalada and I’ve been in love with sports for all my life. My project is SeedCycle (instagram @seedcycle), a human energy moved seed bank. I travel by bicycle to get to know my country and its nature.
We want to invite all of those interested in getting in touch with our culture, nature, traditions and country, to take part in one of our tours.
When we take a tour we carry all of our equipment, no support vehicle whatsoever. This is what pushes us to get to know new people and places, to dive in the authentic Portugal.
We know that for those who arrive to our country, the 900 kms long shores might be what looks more attractive, but if you dare into the deep Portugal you will discover some of the most beautiful villages, picturesque places, rivers, mountains and real portuguese people, very different from those you can find in the highly touristic Algarve.
In June 2019, after months of obsession with the National road number 2, the longest in Europe and number 3 in the world, right after route 66 in the US and ruta 40 in Argentina, we decided, me and Tiago Farraia, natural born athlete and dedicated yogini, founder of the project Yoga na Terra (integral @yoganaterra), to depart for an adventure. There are around 740kms that connect Chaves, next to the border with Spain, to Faro, capital of the most touristic region in Portugal, the Algarve.
Through the way you find such an intense culture, so much history and views so stunning that it gets hard to get it all in at once.
That’s why we need to do it again.
And we want to take you with us! We want you to know the National Road 2 and the real touring Portugal.
