    Really enjoyed helped by eBikes for our occasional riders. Only negative was the time spent on 'main roads' on our day two (day 3 of usual tour). Last two days with more to visit and see were particularly good. Coimbra is really interesting and almost deserves an extra day. Many thanks to Loren for all his/her patience and help. Also one bike was a poor fit (Sue Balme) but resolved by Carlos and the adjustable handle on the replacement bike would be good as a standard capability, particularly for older riders with back +/or neck concerns.

    First, the good news: • Portugal Nature Trails did a great job of organizing the trip, preparing the bikes and transporting us to and from our destination. The drivers were friendly, knowledgable, efficient and prompt. Our Focus hybrid bikes worked well, were sturdy and comfortable to ride and suited the terrain. The company provided us with water bottles, helmets, GPS, spare tubes, pump, maps and booklets – everything that we’ve come to expect from trips that we've taken through your company. Our accommodation each night was good and, in one case, in Pedralva, exceptional. And we were lucky that the weather remained sunny and warm throughout the six days. Now for the not-so-good news: • Occasionally we found ourselves in areas where we could not read the GPS clearly. Using the GPS, I found it hard to distinguish one narrow street from another in the small towns and villages that we passed through, and we ended up following the wrong road. When I consulted the maps on these occasions, they provided little assistance. They weren’t detailed enough, didn’t show the routes clearly enough and carried no words or icons that might have helped us out of our predicament. • We encountered hilly stretches that we hadn’t anticipated and ran into long stretches of road covered with sand that was so deep that we had to walk through it. • We also descended on a couple of occasions down dirt tracks that were so steep, rutted and rocky that we had to walk. Sometimes we had to walk up, as well. I should assure you again that we both enjoyed the trip. Both of us were amazed by the terrain, the environment and the hospitality that we found in Portugal. But based on our previous tours with Pure Adventures, we hadn’t anticipated such a challenging ride. We had a great trip and that I’d recommend it to others. But I would also forewarn them to expect hills, sand, rocks and steep descents and that their navigational skills would be put to the test.

When I consulted the maps on these occasions, they provided little assistance. They weren’t detailed enough, didn’t show the routes clearly enough and carried no words or icons that might have helped us out of our predicament. In the town of Aljezur, for example, we spent more than an hour following different roads, hoping that one of them would put us on the right track to continue farther. One of them was a dirt road, several others were cobblestone, and all of them led us up hills with grades of 15% to 20%. I was able to muscle my bike up these hills in my lowest gear; my wife had to walk. As it turned out, we’d taken the right road. We just hadn’t expected such a steep hill, and so we second-guessed ourselves until finally we rode back to our hotel and spent the rest of the day walking around the town. • Over the next couple of days, we encountered similar challenges on hilly roads that we hadn’t anticipated. We also ran into long stretches of road covered with sand that was so deep that we had to walk through it. When we rode into one of these areas, my wife’s front wheel buried itself so suddenly that her bike stopped dead in its tracks and hurled her into a bunch of thistles. • We also descended on a couple of occasions down dirt tracks that were so steep, rutted and rocky that we had to walk. Sometimes we had to walk up, as well. I should assure you again that we both enjoyed the trip. Neither of us suffered any serious injuries, and both of us were amazed by the terrain, the environment and the hospitality that we found in Portugal. But based on our previous tours with Pure Adventures, we hadn’t anticipated such a challenging ride. Our previous trips, through Belgium and the Czech Republic, were suited to both my wife and me. They were described as moderately challenging. On a scale of difficulty of 1 to 5, they were both described as 3.5. We expected a similar ride through the Algarve, based on its similar rating of about 3.5. In my estimation, this ride was far more difficult. We might have felt less challenged if we’d known in advance about the obstacles that we faced each day. If the maps, for example, had indicated with icons or words that we would encounter sand, 20% grades and washed-out culverts, we could have decided in advance whether we wanted to tackle those passages or not. I realize that cyclists tend to over-estimate their skills and under-estimate the challenges, and I also realize that a challenge for people in their 60s, like us, is a piece of cake for someone in his 30s. But since I ride about 8,000 km a year on my road bike, I feel fairly confident in saying that these were challenging conditions for riders of any age and experience. Again, I should emphasize that we had a great trip and that I’d recommend it to others. But I would also forewarn them to expect hills, sand, rocks and steep descents and that their navigational skills would be put to the test.

    Most accommodation was amazing. I would suggest that our first night stay be in a place that is more tourist friendly ie by the coast because we had an entire day there with not much to do. Recommend some brief instructions on how to enter your own address. (in GPS)

    Asked for several custom changes to the tour; staff was very responsive and accommodating. Quality of the hotels was what we expected and quite good; we paid for several upgrades. Could have used better info on panniers and available space on the bike. Bigger font on maps would have been nice,

    This was the best trip concerning customer service. Airport pick up, delivery of bikes and information, phone call during the week to see how things were going, bike pick up and delivery of us to Lisbon were all appreciated and done with panache. Brand new FOCUS road bikes were outstanding. Marsha did miss having an odometer on her bike to see the mileage done during the day (plus she is used to having one at home). Marsha did get one flat which we fixed but the pump that was supplied works great for hybrids but does not pump enough for road bikes. I did mention that to Antonio when he came to add some air to the tire the following morning after the complimentary phone call that we received from him. Thankfully we did not have any other flats or breakdowns afterwards.
