The 6th and final stage of Ride Across Portugal best closes this challenge.
The Guadiana River is the highlight on this first part of the stage, with the course accompanying the winding path of the river that separates Portugal from Spain, providing fun and challenging moments on the bike.
Mértola and Alcoutim, both situated on the banks of this river, are among the most beautiful villages in Portugal, being other highlights of this stage.
Still with the mind processing the images of the Guadiana and the special atmosphere of these two villages, it is now turn to leave the river and head to the sea, on the south coast of Portugal.
A constant soft rollercoaster brings participants to the place where land meets the sea.
Where the Atlantic blue serves as background for the celebration of this challenging conquest. Also by the sea is the final party that will consecrate as a winner every athlete finishing the race, and among these the fastest woman and man athletes' crowned as Ride Across Portuga's King and Queen.
More than just six days crossing a whole country from north to south, this is an unforgettable journey full of challenges and personal overcoming. And above all, a week full of conviviality, emotions and the sharing of a common passion with people from all over the world.
