Did a longer ~90km test ride this last sunday.
Woke up early and rode my Gazelle 8km to catch the train that would took me to the south margin of the tagus river. Got off the train and rode all the way down to the Espichel cape.
Some road sections were in not so good condition so as I stopped to eat something I kept checking the wheels and the spokes.
Arrived safely at the cape.
The Gazelle resting with some friends while I absorb the scenery.
It has been a long time (20 years?) since my last visit. I completely forgot about the cape's old monastery... it's completely in ruins I'm afraid.
Did all the way back to the train station but then turned towards the coast and then up north doing another ~25Km. End up taking the boat back to Lisbon.
The wheels survived the "beating" with flying colors. Still straight, no broken spokes and no punctured tubulares. On the other hand the headset is starting to show some signs of "index steering" so I'll have to find a new athena headset sooner or later.
