We'd run out of time. We needed to be back in Tui by early afternoon, and there was no way we could do that. Also, the quickest route was on a main road that would certainly have been dangerous for cycling.

After lunch in the walled city of Monção, we took the ecopiste - a cycle track on the old railway line, along the river to the Eiffel bridge leading to Tui. The track was very easy cycling, except that the start was hard to find, and it had barriers every time a vehicle track leading to the river crossed it.
