Ride for your LifeLine – Sponsored by Avis // Monday 9 October

The route will pass the parish of São Roque, which is primarily known for its beaches, with the typical dark sand of this volcanic island, traditional Azorean houses and the parochial church, whose altar is decorated with hand-painted azulejo tiles. Upon return to Ponta Delgada, all participants are invited to a lunch hosted by Avis.
