The trip was absolutely unbelievable. Biggest takeaways: Portugal is an amazing country, each day on the bike is so different from the next, the days are challenging- especially as a novice biker, but doable. I quickly learned to trust every one of Ricardo’s suggestions- he is extremely organized, responsive and knowledge about all the best restaurants. Live Love Ride Portugal is truly a one of a kind family and I’m so glad I was able to experience the culture, food, wine and country by bike. Also, we did the trip in April- got very lucky weather wise, no rain, some chillier mornings and windy days but sunshine and 75 most of the time.
We had a wonderful week of cycling with friends in a private tour of the Douro Valley. The guys from Live Love Ride (Ricardo, Luis and Daniel) were excellent-they couldn't do enough to ensure that we had a great time including directing us to some fabulous restaurants for lunches. The bikes were first class and the accommodation outstanding. We can thoroughly recommend Live Love Ride.
