Eat Drink Ride
Ever wonder what it is like to sit on the main square of a forgotten interior Portuguese village at the end of a hot summer day, feasting your senses with authentic local food and wine, realising that you are the only foreigner within 50 km?…
This is what Eat Drink Ride experiences within every Portugal Motorcycle Tours trip is all about. It is about indulging your palate and your hunger with home cooked regional cuisine prepared by cooks and families who are our friends. Not only are these places off the touristic map but some of them are just private families who have a great affection to welcome distinct travellers and show them the eternal Portuguese way of saying “I love you” through food.
We will introduce you to the people and the food behind this culture and not the restaurant itself. People like Maria de Jesus, who has been cooking her family’s ancient recipes for friends for as long as she can remember and who is only happy when the pot is left empty at the end of the meal. But don’t worry, dessert is still to come…
We want you to experience the heart of our food culture. To sit at a warm welcoming family table, letting the wine and conversation flow through each and every delicacy of authentic regional Portuguese Cuisine. Or have the chance to eat some caught on the moment fish and seafood with your bare hands. It is all about living the Eat Drink Ride experience at its fullest. All the intricate flavours and combinations of land and sea will make you realize that good food, good wine and good company make up the unforgettable holidays that we want to enjoy in our company.
It is this appetite for wanting to enjoy life at its fullest that distinguishes the Portugal Motorcycle Tours trips — and ultimately the Portugal Motorcycle Tours guest.
For us, it all starts with that first roar of the engine. That deep roar of the 4 cylinders thumping their way into our adrenaline. Ahead lies a country with the greatest concentration of landscape diversity in the whole of Europe. Scenic coastal roads, lead to mountains that descend into red dust planes, turn after turn, hill after hill, vista after vista. This is the thrilling ride through Portugal that we want you to experience.
Knowing that there is a whole interior of Portugal to de discovered, where the roads are empty and the horizon stretches as far as the eye can see. Imagine the beauty of the of being the only rider on the mountain pass, overlooking 2000 meters of abrupt natural landscape. Just you, the motorcycle, the road and the scenery. Nothing standing between you and the liberation of this moment…
You will be riding only the finest machines, designed for your maximum comfort and road performance. The roads we will be driving on are amongst some of the most beautiful stretches of pavement in the world, rich with culture and lore at each bend.
At Portugal Motorcycle Tours, the motorcycles you ride have to be in tune with the diversity and speciality of the Portugal road Network. They are more than just a means to an end. They are your fellow companions throughout which the journey will be shared. Much like your fellow riders, or the small unknown village where you stopped for some homemade cheese, charcuterie and wine.
The motorcycle becomes not only a part of the journey but a part of you, like the friends who you met have become family, the food and wine you tasted becomes your new developed palate and the roads and scenery you witnessed become your new vision of life.
At the end of the day, it is all about challenging your riding spirit and getting in touch with what makes you be you!
