Much of the ride will take place along the National Road 2 (N2). Built in 1945 the N2 was born from a project that gathered several old routes and paths like the Royal Road and some of the most important Roman roads that crossed the ancient Iberian Roman province of Lusitania to create this mythical road.

 

The project started in 1930, the Portuguese Government aimed to create a single road that would cross the entire country, north to south, through its most central axis.

 

With 739 Km’s in length, the N2 crosses 7 provinces, 11 districts, 29 municipalities, 4 mountains and 11 rivers, joining the cities of Chaves, right at the portuguese northern border, to Faro on the south coast of the Algarve, crossing some of the most iconic cities, towns and villages of Portugal.
