If you don’t feel comfortable repairing a flat tire, a broken chain or anything else on the rear derrailor, but you still wish to do a bike tour in Portugal on your own (without a Guide) you should choose a Supported Bike Tour

As you are on your own, the Guide will not be there to take care of your bicycle, this is your responsibility: you will be responsible for the good use of your bicycle and its components. You must handle your gears gently and carefully; you must park your bicycle safely in order not to make scratches on the frame and manage that it is safe and secure, using the supplied lock, to avoid theft

You will also be responsible for the good use of all the supplied equipment: bicycle, helmet, bags with accessories, GPS device and mobile phone; all the equipment must be returned to Portugal Bike Team as it was given to you

When you receive the bicycle for your bike tour it is tuned and prepared for the tour. As you are cycling on your own, on a Supported bicycle tour you are responsible for the bicycle during the tour

On Supported tours you can start any day of the week. Ask us about our availability!

Self-Guided Tours (with a GPS device on your handlebar)

You will have all the information to guide you. You only need to follow the arrow in your GPS device with all tracks of the bicycle tour recorded that will be on the handlebar of your bicycle

Self-Guided Bicycle Tours do not include dinners, daily picnics, energy bars and water supply during the day and some activities specific of some bike tours, as you are on your own
