My son and I and originally thought that we would ship our bikes from the US to Spain for our first tour of the Camino de Santiago but at the last moment decided not to put up with all the hassle that this would entail and elected to rent our bikes instead. We read of several companies online that specialized... More

A couple friends and I from the US did a trip with Goncalo in Sintra. Goncalo took us on some beautiful trails through the magical forests high atop Sintra and doubled as a history guide. He told us all about Portugal and the region and was super friendly and knowledgeable. We then did another city bikes ride through Lisbon a... More

My wife, son and I have just done the Rota Vicentina self guided trip from Lisbon to the Algarve with this company. We did a lot of research before choosing this operator and were so impressed by the warmth, patience and efficiency of the team that we went with them. Furthermore, the price of the trip was by far the... More

I booked my bike before arriving in Lisbon. My original plan was to have the bike delivered to my hostel and cycle from Lisbon to Porto. As often happens, plans changed after arrival and Cycling Rentals was super flexible about changing my start and end dates. They got me all setup with a great women's touring bike and panniers. I...

We rented two bikes and gear for a bike trip between Leon and Santiago de Compostela. Bikes were delivered promptly, with very clear instructions about set up and how to return them at the other end. We rented touring bikes with suspension forks - these turned out to be perfect for the Camino as we could lock out the forks... More

My sister and I made our reservations via email. The entire interaction was very positive. The Cycling Rentals staff were very kind, professional and helpful. They helped us map our activities for the day. They even accommodated us on their day off (Monday) and we were able to do our pickup after visiting the National Palace of Sintra (which is... More

We hired bikes from Cycling Rentals for our Camino trip from Burgos to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. The whole experience was first rate. We first wrote with questions and got prompt and helpful answers. Once we decided to book the rental, payment was simple, and the Cycling Rentals staff even suggested a change to the reservation that resulted in... More

Cycling Rentals provides a great service for tourists looking to get around Sintra. While much of their business seems to be in long distance bike touring, grabbing one of their mountain bikes or e-bikes to explore Sintra was great for my week long trip there. Martin made sure the bike had all of the equipped gear (helmet, spare, bike lock,... More

We were delighted when we came across Cycling Rentals before we headed off for our holiday in Portugal. We reserved the bikes in advance for our villa holiday in central Portugal so we could explore the area how we like doing it best...by bike! The booking process was simple and although we booked online we could also speak on the... More
