Bikes, Gear and Support

In order to provide you unique expirences, we have the best equipments at your disposal. We present you different types of bicycles and materials according to your type of tour.
 

HYBRID BIKES
We have a fleet of hybrid bicycles from TrekKTM and BH. With aluminum frames (regular or open) and 27 speeds (mountain bike gears), they are light and efficient, the perfect bicycles for the cycling tours we run in Portugal and Spain. These bicycles come with bike computer, handlebar bag with map case, lock, water bottle and panniers support (panniers are optional).
The bikes have flat pedals (we don't recommend cages). If you don't like riding on flat pedals, please bring your own clipless pedals and we will be happy to put them on your bicycle.

ROAD BIKES
We have beautiful road bikes for different circumstances and certain details that make difference to your tours, such as Trek Emonda and Trek Domane, both made of carbon frame.
The first, also with Ultegra, serves the purpose of achieving higher speeds, as it is a lighter bicycle, with sensational ride-tuned balance and handling that elevate Trek ride performance to a whole new level.
The second one, with IsoSpeed, is characterized by the incredible race comfort and stability.

ELECTRIC BIKES
An E-Bike (Electric Bicycle) is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. Great for those who want to pedal from north to south of Portugal without much effort.

Since the beginning, A2Z Portugal - Walking & Biking believes that new technologies are an added value when traveling, making it an easier, safer and more knowledgeable experience. All our tours are geo-referenced and our guests are invited to use their GPS's to travel at their own rhythm, and track where they are at all time.
If you don't like these new gadgets, no problem! Our guide will always be nearby motivating you and telling you all the secrets of the places you visit along the way. And of course, we provide very accurate route notes.
If you don't own a GPS, A2Z has brand new user-friendly touch-screen Garmin Dakota and Etrex Touch GPS´s for your use.

 

HELMETS
Helmets are mandatory on all of our cycling tours. We recommend you bring your own helmet. If you don't want to do so we can provide the helmet for free during the tour, if available.
You can also buy a brand new helmet with the A2Z Portugal - Walking & Biking logos on it.
