Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We aim not to destroy the resources -economic, cultural and natural- on which we depend.

We respect the countryside and advise all our riders to dispose of their rubbish responsibly. We advise our clients not to leave anything other than organic waste behind them on their travels and where possible to use the recycling facilities provided.

We encourage our visitors to use the local markets, buying fresh produce that does not incur use of packaging, we also provide flasks/water bottles for drinking water whilst traveling to cut down on the use of bottled water.

In our office we attempt to conduct our business paper free, communicating mainly be e mail with clients, suppliers and partners. Any unused or spoilt paper is recycled as scrap for notes in the office. We dispose of our office waste responsibly in the local recycling bins provided near to the office. We also dispose of any waste ink cartridges or dead batteries in the correct manner.

The Impacts of this Trip

Over the last couple of years we have developed good working relationships with our suppliers and partners. The hotels that we use for our Bike Vacations are all vetted by the company directors and are welcoming to our cyclists. They help them with storing their bikes overnight and share their local knowledge with the cyclists, thereby giving the clients the best experience whilst in any particular area of the Algarve.

We also relay to the clients any local knowledge we have gained ourselves, especially with cafes and restaurants along the route, where we know they will receive a warm welcome by the locals and a strong coffee and special cakes to sustain their energy levels!

We also advise our clients of any local festivals and local traditions that they may come across on their route, always encouraging them to partake!

Just as importantly we try to advise the clients of any diversions they may need to take in their routes due to roadworks or dangerous situations.

Each and every day held it's own memorable moment. The beauty of remote, empty beaches, the fragrant miles of orange groves, incredible views from empty castles, the grueling but worthwhile slog up to Monchique, followed by the exhilarating descent....it was all good! Read full review
