Long Description:
This Bicycle Repair Station is at the start point of an old railroad line that connects the cities of Guimarães and Fafe and that was transformed in a bike trail.


"In order to meet the needs of residents and tourists visiting us, the Municipality of Fafe took advantage of the layout of the railway line connecting Fafe to Guimarães, which was deactivated in 1986, and created a cycle tourism trail.

The shared 15.4 km cycle tour crosses part of Fafe County on the southwest side and part of Guimarães County on the east side. The municipality of Fafe has 8.3 km and the remaining 7.1 km are in the municipality of Guimarães.

The layout of this equipment is based on the principle that circulation on the Cycling Trail is a priority in relation to all roads that cross it, following a norm that the municipality of Fafe has defined, which is not true in some cycling trails and ecovias. .

Along the track there are relaxation points with furniture that allows various uses and drinking fountains at key points, properly marked."
