Cycling the N2
Cycling from the North to the South of the country the journey began on May 1st, 2022. For 15 days we cycled through the mountain ranges and rolling hills of central Portugal following the National Road 2 (N2). We began the journey in the Chaves, a picturesque town 10 km from the border of Spain, weaving our way through the center of the country towards our coastal destination of Faro.
This trip included a few firsts for me. It was my first trip cycling with a partner, my first trip cycling with a group, and my first trip cycling with a young child. When I cycled across the US in 2010 it was with a friend, when I cycled along the Mediterranean in 2016 it was with my sister, and when I cycled around Portugal in 2020 it was a solo adventure. My takeaway from this is that there is no wrong way to see the world; the joys of travel can be experienced as a team or as an individual.
