08/08/13: Pedal Joe arrives in Faro, Algarve

The São Brás BTT Team welcoming Pedal Joe

Yesterday evening, Pedal Joe surprised everyone by arriving at São Brás de Alportel, one day before schedule. He found lodgings at a friend's house, where he rested deservedly.

This evening he was accompanied to Faro (with two cyclists pushing him in turn - at high speed!) by the BTT Club (Mountain Bike Club) of São Brás, where he had a warm welcome by the local Lions and was offered a kingly dinner by the Faro Moto Club.

Joe will meet José Lima and Rosa Carvalho in Quarteira on Friday, the 13th of August. Then he will start another leg of his trip in direction of Seville, and from there on to Algeciras where he will embark to Marocco to start his long African journey.
