Bike Portugal - Jun 22 - Jun 26, 2019

Traveler: Phyllis B. - Local specialist: Jorg Nascimento

Jorg was not our specialist. It was a woman Joanna, who was excellent.
The biking was fantastic. My only complaint is that the bike itself was too big for me, and it made it difficult to get on and off.. My understanding is that you only have 2 sizes for an E bike, but it actually felt a little dangerous. Generally , the bike trips I've been on before not only want your height, but your actual inseam (groin to ankle) to get the appropriate bike. It may have also helped it the saddle bag could have been on the side instead of the back, which just made it harder to get my leg over. I had to keep my water bottle in the saddle bag, as it would have made it even harder for me to get on and off if it was kept in the clips.

However, I still totally enjoyed the trip. The routes were great. / The hotels excellent/ the beeches beautiful. and the food delicious.

Dear Phyllis. Thanks a lot for your feedback and we will take your suggestions into account. We're fully aware of the sizing difficulties you had. We hope however you enjoyed the trip and should we get the opportunity to have you as a guest on an other Tour we will be able to define much better these sizing issues. Best regrads. Jorg
