After enjoying this beautiful landscape you will start riding down the hills always surrounded by dense vegetation until you get to the main road.

TESTIMONIALS

“My mother, sister and I decided it would be great fun to do a day-tour with Portugal Bike. (…) We did the Cascais-Sintra tour, which was very beautiful. We made it to Cabo da Roca and saw cliffs, seaside landscapes and forests. The bikes were outstanding and in excellent condition! Jose and Cristina were extremely helpful in organizing the tour, and provided us with a great tour guide, Ricardo. We had a great time, and they spoke impeccable English and were great fun!”
