We are pleased to offer electric bikes as an option on our tours. Jump on your bike, hit the "on" switch, start pedaling - and you're off.
With an e-bike you can tour through the hilly landscape of Portugal whit ease. An E-bike is much like a regular bicycle. The electric motor only provides assistance. They provide all the advantages of a regular bicycle. You pedal normally and just use the motor to help out when you would otherwise struggle against a headwind or be going uphill, or use the motor all the time just to make riding easier.
The electric assistance is perfectly smooth and silent, and it complements rather than supplants human power.
An electric bike is not about traveling at high speeds. Imagine an electric bike as a regular bike that just happens to be easier.
With the controller mounted on the handlebar you regulate the electric assistance. You can dial in the amount of assistance you want, ranging from no assistance to a great deal of assistance.
