Guided Cycle Tours

In 2016 I launched my own guided biking tours for small groups, taking in some of my favourite areas of Portugal.

The links below will take you to details of each guided bicycle tour. To find out what riders thought of our first trips, see the page. You can also visit the page to check the schedule or join the mailing list for information on future trips, offers etc..

– this trip explores the north-east Alentejo, riding across the region’s rolling farmland, visiting ancient towns and a string of frontier fortresses.

AWT 037 bloga 9-day circuit of some of the finest scenery in the western Algarve – and a great way to escape the winter weather in northern Europe! Departures in January, March and November 2017.

this is a fairly tough trip taking a north-south route through three different regions of Portugal over 12 days, from the northern end of the Serra da Estrela mountains all the way to the Gulf of Cadiz.

We are also looking at developing some shorter cycle tours for later this year/2017. Please complete the poll below to help us decide! (Tour length includes arrival/departure days.)

Guidebooks

I’m putting together a series of detailed guides – with print and ebook versions – covering some of the best areas in Portugal for cycling.

The second book – Cycling The Algarve – is now out. This includes a six-day touring circuit of the western Algarve (plus a tiny bit of the south-west Alentejo), a couple of two-day extensions and 10 day rides starting in various towns to the west of Faro.

The first guide – he Alentejo Circui – contains details of a six-day tour through the region, starting and finishing in the World Heritage city of Évora, plus a three-day extension out to the coast. See the page to find out more and to sign up for updates on future publications.

Is Brazil really that dangerous? | Yahoo Answers

I've heard from the Lonely Planet Brazil travel guide that cities like Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo are crime ridden cities. Based on your experiences (if you have been to Brazil), what can you say about this issue? How do you survive those bad hangovers criminals give you? Any suggestions? Thanks!
