... half way to the bottom as he doesn't do so well going down. Had a good laugh with him as we waited for our little mini Peloton to catch up. the whole group had a beautiful ride coming down a valley to ride along the Douro river to our winery hotel for the night. Those great support staff at InGamba, when we were leaving our coffee stop, slipped a can of beer into my back jersey pocket.

It was great to see a group of local residents using one of the cloisters to rehearse a play. Leaving the village of about 800 people our GPS tried to take us further up the hill on what looked like a local goat track so we declined and retraced our route back to Lamego and on to Porto.
