The bicycle has arrived some time ago and finally I had the chance of going for a small trip where I took some pictures and I decided to share it with you.
This time I had a lovely fellow cycler with me, my couchsurfer Yael from Israel.
We headed slowly for the typical "pasteis de Belem". Do you know a better breakfast than this?

After the "pit stop" it was time to start slowly to be heading to the beach. Weather was still lovely, and seizing the last summer day at the beach seemed a good plan to both of us!

The path takes us along the river and the views are great!
This is the path I will be using daily to go to work!
The first beach we stopped for a little swim, was just after Cruz Quebrada.

After a little break we proceed with some more cycling!
|We got some company|

We reached the "Passeio Maritimo de Oeiras". Shame that is forbidden to cycle there, but well, we were cycling slowly, so we took that way.

Cycling along River Tejo at Passeio Maritimo is very nice!

Cycling with good company is indeed nice!

It was then time for a short stop and try to have new "flying style pictures"!

Well, day was nice and we were not the only ones at the beach that day!

After some swim and sun bathing, it was time for some meal!
We have returned to Alges by train.
