Lagos to Monte Gordo
Apr 26, 2005
Lagos to Queteira
Ride Time: 4 hrs
Avg Speed: 20kph
Weather: We had a cruisy tail wind all day. Temp 24 degrees.
In the morning in Lagos we checked out some more beaches and then left around 12pm.
Nice ride. Good to be back on the bikes again - especially in this weather. Queteira is english tourist central. With all the restaurants along the beach front parade selling mushy peas - wicked. We passed on that and grabbed another pizza. Just before we arrived in this town we went through golf course central. The small, but very rich resort town was surrounded by 6 top class golf courses.
Day 24 - April 25th
Queteira to Olhau
Ride Time: 2hrs 40 mins
Avg Speed: 17kph

Well, we came down here for the warm stuff and we sure have found it.
So today we pulled out the singlets for the first time and the portuguese ladies were not disappointed.
It was a day of firsts really:
1st singlet worn
1st day above 25 degrees
We got to Olhau thinking there'd be an awesome beach just by the campsite. But no, there's no beaches near this town, they're all out on the coastal islands. We didn't have time to catch the boat out there, but luckily the campsite had a pool and a tennis court so we spent the afternoon swimming and making Andrew look pathetic with a racquet.
