#louzan #weekend #party #tasco #medronho #chanfana #5beersandaginequals9euros #bikes #amaddict #magic this basically resumes a weekend during November in Louzan! (Lousã – Portugal).
Amazing, as not being the first or even the eleventh time we come here, and after repeating those same spots, and trails, there’s always something new and the mystic environment of Lousã always stamps a stupid bike smile on your face. We feel like teenagers again, away from our parents for a weekend, suddenly it just makes sense to leave every alcohol bottle empty, and 3 hours sleep tops is more than enough rest to attack a full day riding down a mountain!
This time we took a different approach and on Sunday, we decided to get lifted to the highest point of Lousã (Trevim) and discover the trails that go down the mountain throughout the ancient cobble stoned villages (aldeias de xisto – quite nice to visit btw) now occupied mainly by these groups of foreign “kind of hippies” people and some who recover them houses to rent or to spend their sweet and quiet vacations. These villages are connected by a network of amazing “single tracks” that make every biker happy as a dog in a barn. There’s technical, steep, slow and fast action trails, combine this with a group of chilled and hungover’ed old friends (we usually basically just race each others on every chance!) and Magic Louzan once again made us feel like home, but just better.
