Long Description:
-:-

I have visited this Bike counter in the day it was turned on and at that time 18 cyclists had passed.

The City of Fafe official website tell us about the Pista de Cicloturismo:

quote:

"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."
