Best way to get to know                                              


Travelling by bike is probably the best way to get to know all the aspects of the country you are travelling in. Being an open top vehicle and moving at a lazy like speed, cycling gives you the opportunity to enjoy the breeze, the heat of the sun and the characteristic scents of the places you are travelling through.
Portugal is an ideal country for cycle tourism, with an almost flat terrain, good secondary roads with low traffic, a beautiful landscape and a breathtaking sea coast. To which we must add the friendly people and the mouth watering gastronomy and wines that can be found along the country.

Safety, an important matter


Like in any leisure and sports activity safety is an important matter. All the safety and security measures must be taken into consideration to avoid and minimise any problems. It is mandatory the use of a cycling helmet also following the highway code is a must to guarantee the safety of all the road users. Insurance is also a requirement and you should make sure you and your bike are insured.

When choosing to travel on your own without the support of a specialised operator you must be more cautious about your travel arrangements and try to anticipate any problems you may encounter. It is important to have with you all the necessary contacts like the emergency number ‘112’ in Portugal and preferably a mobile phone so that you can contact or be contacted on.
