Superbly organised ride in a beautiful part of Portugal

We did the South west self guided tour. The organisation was superb, with great attention to detail. Pre-trip information gave use an excellent idea of what to expect. Bikes were in perfect condition. Directions and route maps were accurate and precise.This was the most personalised service we have ever received on a bike tour. We had daily check-ins via text from our contact in Live Love Ride, with tips on restaurants, things to see etc. I could not recommend this organisation highly enough. We were treated as individuals, not just a booking number. We will definitely use LLR again!

Amazing Trip on the Portuguese Camino

We had a wonderful time with Live Love Ride on the Portuguese Camino. Our family (12 adults) rode from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. Our guides Sergio and Joao were amazing, friendly, informative and kind....with lots of laughs. We have experienced many bike trips in Europe and this group is definitely one of the best. The sights, the views, the people and food were amazing....with some beautiful hotels too! I would highly recommend Live Love Ride to others interested in cycling Portgugal.

Mallorca with Live Love Ride

The only way to really experience Mallorca is to ride through it, all the senses are turned on. The moments between the highlights provide a preamble for the punctuations of action and activity. LLR’s team knows the best level of service for the riders to enjoy the journey with comfort and support, while still challenging everyone to own their journey. Highly recommended team!

Best trip ever!

This was my first bike tour trip and it was the best vacation I have taken. Despite having biked recreationally in many different places, I greatly underestimated the joy I would feel from cycling as a mode of transportation while on vacation. Traveling town to town, over varied terrain including beach boardwalks, medieval cobblestone roads, dirt paths, rocky trails, and cruising through small towns, thriving cities, beautiful agricultural lands and vineyards, and bisecting gorgeous pine forests, fed all my senses. Each day led to a different challenge with unique rewards along the way and at the finish line. My biggest concern going into this trip was not having enough time to explore each town once we arrived by bike. Fortunately, this was not an issue, we arrived each day with plenty of time and extra energy to really enjoy the scene.

The boutique hotels Live Love Ride chose for us were each special in their own way. Whether it was a lushly landscaped garden, a castle walled courtyard, or a cozy hotel bar, arriving to a beautiful stone walled manor at the end of the day’s ride was always a great surprise. The luggage transfer service was very reliable and well worth it. In addition to the exceptional customer service and outstanding hotel choices, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the restaurant recommendations; I strongly suggest going with their choices.

Portugal and Spain are each beautiful countries and the culture changed more than I expected as we moved along the route. Experiencing the region on two wheels gave us the opportunity to experience these countries using all five senses, at a perfect pace to take it all in. We Lived. We Loved. & We Rode our way through one of the best experiences of our lives.

Azores 5-day self guided Cycling Tour

An exceptional experience with Live Love Ride. We did a self guided Azores trip and it was amazing. The bikes were beautiful, the information available was clear, and we knew we could always reach Alberto or Ricardo if need be. Both hotels were beautiful and every day had so much to offer. It truly exceeded our expectations and we are grateful to have gone. The cycling was definitely challenging but very rewarding.

Biking the Alentejo First Class!

We booked the private bike tour of the Alentejo region for 8 people. Our Guides Luis and Joaquim were excellent! We absolutely loved everything. We used electric bikes that were brand new and top notch. The food was out of this world. The lunches and dinners were experiences we will never forget. The wine tasting was at beautiful wineries with amazing lunches and delicious wine! The 5 star hotels were fantastic! Live Love Ride exceeded all of our expectations and more. We highly recommend a private tour and the premium package! What a wonderful way to experience Portugal!

Superb self guided trip to the Alentejo

From start to finish this was a professionally orchestrated tour. The hotels were spectacular, particularly Convento de espinheiro and São Lourenço do Barrocal ( we could have spent a week in this location!). The riding was truly incredible - we have cycled on self-guided trips in multiple European countries and domestically, and this was some of the most unique and safe riding we have ever experienced. On some or the roads, you often could forget that cars occasionally also used the road. High quality scott addict road bikes with ultegra components were provided in excellent condition. Pedro provide a diligent briefing with great recommendations for stops and restaurants in multiple locations. We will return to do the Douro valley!

Amazing travels through Portugal

Our 7-day guided tour with Live, Love, Ride was everything we had hoped for and more. Our guides, Ricardo and Andre, were knowledgeable, engaging and very customer-focused. We loved their local knowledge and often asked Ricardo to order meals for the group knowing we would get the best of what was offered in the region. Our equipment, the transportation, the hotels and restaurants we visited were all top notch. The trip was a great value for the money - wrapping the services of travel agent, tour guide, and concierge all in one. The tour itself traveled through Alentejo and Algarve, took us to many beautiful beaches along the Western and Southern coast of Portugal. The riding was a mix of gravel trail and paved surface, and we were grateful for the assist from our e-bikes! Highlights included the fresh fish, the local wines, the beautiful beaches, and the premium hotels in remote locations that combined beautiful views of the countryside with first-class accommodations. The trip will leave us with memories for a lifetime. I highly recommend Live, Love, Ride for your next bike tour.

The Green Cradle of Portugal Bike Ride

The Scott bikes were excellent and well maintained. The off road routes along rivers and the coastline were peaceful, interesting and scenic. The well located hotels / posadas were of a high standard with friendly staff. Daniel was very clear explaining the APP and how it works - a fantastic and user-friendly innovation. He took the time setting up our bikes and was most helpful in answering questions as regards the route as we were doing a self-guided tour. We would love to repeat this experience and have no hesitation in recommending Live Love Ride.

Fantastic week on Alentejo heritage and wine bike tour

We had a wonderful week on the Alentejo bike tour. The programme itself was excellent - we loved all the places we visited - the accommodation was outstanding - so unusual - and the towns and villages all so beautiful. The rides each day were great fun - challenging, but manageable, and the reward at the destination - reaching the beautiful town or seeing the magnificent view were always worth it. and lovely scenery along the way, good roads, fun coffee stops. Our guides Rodrigo and Luis were both super guys - we couldn't have asked for better - not only efficient and organised, but so friendly and always helpful and patient when dealing with any request from anyone, and just fun people to be around! They took us to lovely restaurants, different every time, and we all really enjoyed the delicious Portuguese cuisine and wine! It was a lovely week, a great experience from every angle, and the beautiful weather iin Portugal is just a bonus! Planning on doing the Douro tour next year!

Awesome riding! Wonderful adventure!

Our ride to Santiago along the Camino was awesome. Each day the riding brought new adventures. The terrain varied from beach boardwalks to mountain singletrack to stone pathways through ancient village ways with beautiful vistas. Following the Camino route was like being on an exciting treasure hunt. The mountain bike provided by Live Love Ride was excellent and perfect. Great, challenging riding. Beautiful scenery. Delicious food. Highly recommended.

Cascais Sintra Road Cycling Fun

We were based in Cascais, near Lisbon for 12 days and after just getting back into cycling I needed to keep it up. LiveLoveRide were by far the easiest to work with in tailoring just what we needed. A guided tour 4 times over the 12 days for a morning each time. The bikes were amasing and set up ready for us to use. Rodrigo who was great at making us feel confident on the ride and also coaching us when needed up the hills (thank you). We had some great fun and saw lots of the rides around Cascais and Sintra that are amasing. Thank you Rodrigo and Pedro and looking forward to coming again shortly for some more cycling.
