Back in the early days, Portugal pretty much lagged behind the other Western European countries when it comes to developing a good system on the national highway. But recently, it has decided to increase its road infrastructure that includes motorways, which now makes the country more accessible than ever before.
If you will decide to go on Portugal motorcycle tours, you will be surprised to know that the roads in the country vary from being busy around and in the area of the Lisbon and the completely empty Oporto.
There are three primary types of highways in Portugal. First, you have the main toll roads where you will pay for charges. These roads are really quick and are 90 percent empty, which makes it very pleasurable to drive on and even quitter compared to the toll roads in France.
The main roads are the second type which can be bit busy near the major towns and cities as these are being used by the local people. There are no charges on these roads and these are extensively used by lorries. However, even these roads can become really quite outside of the cities and towns, particularly in central mountain regions.
The last type of roads are the smaller B class roads that are commonly used by the local people and again, these are also very quiet. These are the roads that typically have the most breathtaking views, with all its great stretches and the amazing twists or sometimes, just plainly straight, all of which are factors that can make your Portugal motorcycle tours even more fun and exciting.
But before you go riding on and on for your Portugal motorcycle tours, you have to remember that you need to ride on the right side of the road. Some riders will find this natural but for others, it can be a pretty new experience.
All in all, the Portugal roads are properly maintained, making them a true pleasure to ride on. The roads in Portugal are also very stress free, with the names and places all well signed.
The riders from America and the United Kingdom will surely find the roads in Portugal to be entirely different from those in their country. Without the traffic jams and being just a sheer joy to ride on, there are vast stretches or roads without any vehicles on and sometimes, there are only an odd few. Even if you ride around their main towns and cities, as compared to the US and the UK, you will find it relatively easily to have a reasonable riding experience.
