Percurso fácil, um pouco desgastante a nível físico se não tiver já algum treino, o percurso passa pelo Trilho do Paul do Serra, estradões, singletrack, zonas abertas, zonas de bosque, pequenas pedreiras, ligeiras subidas e muitas descidas, aconselho a fazer da Bica da Cana para o Rabaçal, tem mais descida, no outro sentido, tem mais subida. Apanha lindas vistas do norte da ilha, vale mesmo a pena. No fim, se gosta de algo mais Hardcore, pode ir ainda até as pistas, Pipeline, Cabeças e outras até ás da Ponta do Pargo, vai pedalar um pouco, meu conselho, ir até a Hunters com Redline, descer até a Calheta e se tiver ainda força, ir pela levada nos Prazeres até a Raposeira e descer a Atalaia ou então até a Fajá da Ovelha e descer os Zambrianos, finl no Paul do Mar de ambos.

Access Info

Na reta da casa da Bica da Cana ao ir para a Encumeada, entrar no segundo estradão á esquerda
