    Hi from Azores islands

    regards,

    LP

    Hello lamap, I could be wrong, but I don't think anyone else here is from the Azores.

    What kind of bike have you got?

    Welcome to BF!

    Hi! Welcome to bikeforums.

    My family is from Candelaria in Ponta Delgada. I've never been to the Azores, but hope to make the trip someday. Is there good riding in the Azores?

    Thank you for your interest

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for your interest. You all make this a great site!

    I have two bikes at the moment, a Trek 3900 MB and a Cube litening road bike. This one may is less know to the majority of the forum, came from Germany and I bought it used. I attach a photo, so you can see how it looks (much better than me!!!). This one is my favorite, I love road bikes. I use also the Trek, that I like very much, depending on the roads I have in mind.
    The island I live is Sao Miguel, but I travell often on duty to the other islands, including Terceira, witch is the most populated after Sao Miguel. The total population for the 9 islands is about 130 000, half of them living im my island.

    All the islands have lots os hills, so sometimes a simple 10km ride gets tiring. On the other side the biggest island is less than 100km long, so you can cycle it in two days!!!.

    Last week end, my ride included Candelaria!!!. These are very beautifull islands and you will not regret to visit them.

    Best regards to all,

    LP
