First Women’s Tour of Portugal by bicycle starts in September

The first Women’s Bicycle Tour of Portugal will take place from September 2 to 5, and will feature the participation of nearly 100 runners who will cover 259.3 kilometers, as announced today by the Portuguese Cycling Federation.

The teams will be presented on the 2nd, at Marquês do Pombal, in Lisbon, and following the image of what happened in the first men’s Tour of Portugal, they catch the boat at Cais do Sodré, to Cacilhas.

From there, the cyclists begin an 81.5-kilometer link to Setúbal, land of Oceana Zarco, a pioneer in women’s cycling, in the 1920s.

The second stage connects Mafra to Loures, in a 72 km route, with the third stage being decisive for the final triumph, with an individual time trial of 11.1 kilometers, in Vila Franca de Xira.

The Women’s Tour to Portugal ends on September 5, and, again similarly to what happened in the first Men’s Tour, the race ends with the connection between Caldas da Rainha and Lisbon, at a distance of 94.7 kilometers.
