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.
We have a fleet of hybrid bicycles from Trek, KTM 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.

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.

Many of our tours also include bird watching, cultural visits and gastronomic experiences. As often as possible we include these activities in our tours to enhance diversity in your experience.

In all our tours, you will receive detailed information about the itinerary and the country you are visiting and, in cycling tours, route directions.
