- Meal: starters, Vegan 'Feijoada' with Rice (vegan version of the typical dish Bean Stew), fruits, chocolate cake, coffee and drinks: water, lemonade, wine (think twice);

- This session is 100% exclusive for participants and invited partners. Less people, more intimist. The goal is total focus on the event/HSW community.

PAYMENT DETAILS BELOW

TRAINS TO COIMBRA! The trains have a limited number of spots for bicycles. If you didn't buy your ticket yet, you should do it online soon as possible and select (before the payment step) the 'Transporte de Bicicleta/Bicycle Transportation' option.

By train it's easy, cheap and bike friendly. From 'Lisboa-Oriente' to 'Coimbra-B' stations takes around 1h50m and from 'Porto-Campanha' takes approximately 1h20m. Attention, you can only travel with your bike in the 'Service IC' trains (Inter-Cidades). If you buy the ticket online in advance, it can be 50% cheaper: CP WEBSITE.

If you didn't get a ticket with bike transportation option, there are some alternatives: try different departure hours, traveling by bus (check here) or 'Linha do Oeste' (very very very slow voyage, just in last case).
