Integrated in our initiative "1 ride = 1 tree", 200 trees were planted on the 3rd of March, in Sintra, Portugal.
The initiative, promoted by Live Love Ride and Portuguese ONG "Plantar 1 Árvore" saw 30 volunteers gather in the Sintra Sierra on a beautiful Sunday morning to plant a tree for each rider that joined our bike tours.
Together, we planted 200 endogenous trees in a patch of land that was in need of reforestation in the area. Here's the list of endogenous trees planted:
30 Laurus nobilis (Loureiro);
25 Myrtus communis (Murta);
25 Phillyrea latifolia (Aderno-de-folhas-largas);
45 Quercus faginea (Carvalho-cerquinho);
67 Quercus robur (Carvalho-alvarinho);
8 Sambucus nigra (Sabugueiro);
Thank you to all the volunteers that participated! And a big thank you to all the guests that joined our bike tours and helped us give back to nature - we need to cherish if we can continue to ride by it's beautiful landscapes.
