Hi there.
This is my introduction post to you guys.
My name is Rui, and I’m portuguese. I currently work at a museum, and the main project I’m involved with is the restoring of an early 1910’s industrial mill. Living in a cape area, surrounded by the ocean, my favourite hobbies, besides bike building, are surfing and fishing. I also enjoy small time agriculture.
These are my bikes:
The Red Baron

The Fat Man (check out building at http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=32043&st=0&sk=t&sd=a)

My 66’ Raleigh

All of them


All of them plus my dog

Me and my current Project, the Villiers boartrack racer (http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=33749)

OK, so now we’re taking a tour through my zone
I’m gonna show you the Cape Espichel

Everything is mostly green around here

Lots of old abandoned houses. This one was a house used by one of our kings (D.Carlos) when he came hunting in the 19th century.



If I would have taken this right turn, I would show you two dinossaur footprint tracks, but the path is rough and I don’t have mountain bikes (don’t like ‘em too many wires and strange stuff)

We’re almost there


This is a 15th century chapel built in honour of Our Lady of Cape Espichel. Almost all the capes in Portugal have building honouring cults to Holy Mary Mother of God.

Here we are



Good but dangerous spots for fishing


It’s kind of a dangerous but beautifull place


The sanctuary

Goin’ back home

And at last, the other thing I like to do: growing stuff up

Thanks for watching guys, and keep on rollin’

Wow that is absolutely beautiful! How far is that ride from your house? I don't think I would ever go to work if I lived that close to that scenery! Great looking bikes too! I love the fat man bike. Pretty kool hiding the shifter in the tank. It's pretty pathetic that i'm half portugeese and never been over there yet. Your pictures make me want to go though. I wonder how much it would cost to take my bike there to go riding around with you when I get the chance to go? Thanks for sharing these photos!

Hi there guys.
I've been sick these last few days, with the flu or something.
Thanks a lot for the comments on the bikes.
This place is about a mile from where I live.
But don't make mistakes, there are also lots of things to be sad about around here, like wreckless ATV riding for instance. And this is a protected area...
I don't know about the cost of that trip but I guess that bringing your bike would be expensive... But it would definitely be cool.
Do any of you guys surf?
Keep rollin'
