The activity begins at the Arts Platform, where a brief briefing on the tour and bikes will be held.
The route continues through the historical center of the city, city park and follows to Paçô Vieira where begins the ascent of the mountain. Here the trails cross forests, fields, and villages and take you to the destination, the peak of Penha mountain at 605 meters of altitude.
