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:
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.

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.

LEVELS OF SUPPORT
Portugal A2Z | Walking & Biking Tours offers different types of support on its tours (Guided, Guided (Supported) and Self-Guided) and in all of them we assure a high level of service:
Be a part of a guided tour with previously fixed dates. Our guided tours include 2 guides (out of Portugal 1 European guide fluent in English + 1 local guide).
Guided Tours (Supported)
On our supported guided tours, you will travel independently based on accurate route directions, maps and/or GPS tracks. These tours also include the service of 1 guide to drive a support van and transfer your luggage.
Choose your own pace and find your way. You will meet one guide at the beginning and at the end of the tour. Throughout the tour you will have:
- 24h phone support line. In some of our tours, we provide a mobile phone so that you can call us free of charge and receive messages with the weather forecast.
- GPS, map and/or route directions so you can follow the route at your own pace.
In all our tours, you will receive detailed information about the itinerary and the country you are visiting and, in cycling tours, route directions. This will not be standard documentation, but carefully revised documents for each individual tour. Even if we have done the tour a million times, all documentation is reviewed and adapted to YOUR unique tour.
This is what we consider first class service.
