Bikes, Gear, Support

In order to provide you with an unforgettable experience, we ensure that we have the best equipment at your disposal. Read below to find out more about the types of gear we can offer you during our tours:

OUR GEAR

 

HYBRID BIKES
We have a fleet of hybrid bicycles ranging from Trek, to KTM and BH. With aluminium frames (regular and open) and up to 27 speeds (mountain bike gears), these bikes are light, efficient and the perfect gear for the cycling tours we run in Portugal. These bikes also come with a bike computer, handlebar bag with a map case, a lock, water bottle and panniers support (panniers are optional).

All our 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 know details matter here and that’s why we offer models such as the Trek Emonda and Trek Domane. The Utrega-equipped Trek Emonda is a lighter bike making it perfect for reaching higher speeds with sensational ride-tuned balance and handling that elevate the Trek ride experience to a whole new level.

The Trek Domane, equipped with IsoSpeed, is ideal for bikers looking for 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. This is perfect for those who want to pedal Portugal from north to south without breaking a sweat!

Since the beginning, Portugal A2Z believes that new technologies are an added value when traveling, making our tours an easier, safer and more knowledgeable experience. All our tours are geo-referenced and our guests are invited to use their GPS to travel at their own pace and track where they are at all times.

If you don't like these new gadgets, no problem! Our guide will always be nearby to give you that extra bit of motivation and tell you all the secrets of the places you visit along the way. If you want to do it the old-fashioned way, we also provide you with extensive route notes to guide you along the way.

If you don't own a GPS, Portugal A2Z has a brand new user-friendly touch-screen Garmin Dakota and Etrex Touch GPS at your disposal.


 

HELMETS
Helmets are mandatory on all our cycling tours. We recommend you bring your own helmet. If you don't want to do so, we can provide you with a helmet for free during the tour, when available.

Alternatively, you can choose to purchase a new helmet with our fun Portugal A2Z logo on it!



VANS
Our Mercedes and Renault vans offer refreshing air-conditioning for front and rear seats and all the needed comfort for you to relax during the transfers on our tours. We even provide free Wi-Fi access onboard so you can update your social media with the latest photos of your tour with Portugal A2Z!

A bike trailer is also available to safely transport your bike as needed.
