most likely because you are new here, and to stop links for selling crap or how to meet a lovely Russian wife etc etc. Probably stops after ten posts or something.

Yes I know why, hence why I wrote it.

The links were Hobbes' (quoted) and from my side: links to articles that enticed me to go the N2, the longest road, north to south, crossing all different PT timezones and climate zones.

One can do the same west to east, along the Douro river, on the N222. With west being USA, and east being Spain. Very nice.

My experience is that outside of the English speaking world bikes are regarded as a normal part of the road. An E-bike will make no difference to that.
Having said that, act like a dick and expect to be treated likewise.The most important thing to pack, in my book, is a smile - and the ability to generate one, when needed. They're contagious.
