Soak in the atmosphere - bike touring provides the perfect speed to get to know a country. Ride at your own pace, stopping to smell the flowers and experience the local culture. Quiet backroads and macadam trails will lead you to the next vineyard, cultural hotspot and charming hotel, where you'll get to relax and experience the local gastronomy.
Live Love Ride comes highly recommended. We choose a self guided bike tour from Porto to Santiago de Compostela on The Central Camino. It was well worth hiring them to make our trip hassle free. They took care of all the details; arranged transportation to and from the airport, booked our hotels, provided us mountain bikes and all the gear, transferred our luggage daily, provided exceptional restaurant recommendations, and checked in with us along the way. The service was excellent! They went out of their way to answer our questions and make sure we were happy and taken care of. Their service made this trip extra special.
The mountain biking was unbelievable. It was both challenging and rewarding. I loved the different terrain and remarkable views. We never knew what to expect around the next turn. This route was perfect for us! In total it was 6 epic days of riding, 180 beautiful miles, and 15,000' of elevation gain, making this trip one of best vacations I have ever taken.
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.
