Filipe Gaivão will be travelling from Braga to the Algarve and will end his campaign in Lisbon.

The route is over 1.300kms and will take 12 days to complete this journey. He is cycling through the interior of the country and representing the Portuguese Association of Asperger’s Syndrome with the initiative of bringing much needed attention to the important cause.

The cycle route is a form of mobilising local authorities about the importance of promoting social inclusion programmes for those suffering with this autism spectrum disorder.
