As we know from experience, bike transport is very important when organising a tour. Most people like to bring their own bikes on their holidays. Bike boxes are now more affordable, and also available to rent. We provide a full pick-up service from Porto airport, so on arrival, we will take over.
However, for those of you who do not want to bring your own bike, we provide two options. Bike transport directly to us, or bike hire. We can offer a rental bike for an additional cost. This can be easily arranged through my relationship with a local bike shop, El Box de Jorge, which I owned until last year. The owner is a close personal friend and will assure that you receive a top quality bike in perfect condition. Please contact us if you would like to discuss doing this.
The second option is bike transport directly to us. Thus, we can have it ready for you on arrival., making cycling holidays in Galicia a lot easier. You can pack up your own bike, in a cardboard bike box which your local shop will provide for you, or in a travel bag/box. You can then send it to Jorge’s bike shop, or my home, whichever you prefer. We will set it up for you, and it will be ready, on a bike stand for you when you arrive here in Tui. At the end of your holiday, just leave the bike with us, and we will dismantle it, pack it, and send it back to you. We will not charge for any of this packing or unpacking and set up. Bike transport usually takes 2-3 days, door to door, although for an extra cost next day delivery is available.
There are many bike transport companies that operate this service. From personal experience, I have always used SENDBIKE, and I have a direct arrangement with them to cater for clients, and I am very happy to liase with them on your behalf. They are very professional, have a live chat facility to clarify all issues, and use DHL for all their deliveries. Again, please contact us if you would like anymore information on this service.
