Hi,

We are now back home after a very nice tour of Portugal  with a short stay in New York on return.  Posted our trip slide show here.   Great weather every day on bike.  Luckily ended just as rain was coming, than switched to car rental to visit Sintra.
Thank you very much for help with arrangements.
We saw only a small sliver of Portugal on this tour.  Will return for more. :-)

Loin de la frénésie des villes, l’Alentejo respire la simplicité et la convivialité. On se plait à parcourir ses routes bordées d’une végétation multicolore. Roulant de sites classés au patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco aux chemins bordant le lac d’Alqueva, la découverte est totale.
L’équipe de RideOn lève le voile sur cette région méconnue grâce à un programme complet et diversifié. Des paysages aux sites historiques en passant par la gastronomie, l’Alentejo livre ses secrets.
L’accueil de l’équipe RideOn fut très chaleureux, à l’image de celui du Portugal. La bonne humeur, la joie de rencontrer autrui et la politesse sont des caractères communs à toutes les personnes croisées. 
L’hébergement dans les Pousadas est atypique et plaisant. La logistique rondement menée. Ce voyage ? C’est cinq jours sans aucun stress. 
J’y retournerai, c’est certain.

From the tanned legs of Algarve to the furrowed face of Tras os Montes, Portugal has a lot to offer.
Between golden beaches and rough mountains beats the heart of Alentejo. The winding country roads, lined with cork oaks, lead past towns filled with history, hills covered with forests, lakes, and fields and meadows, covered with flowers.

Honey is in the air, mixed with pressed grapes and olives. Nature dictates a slower pace, senses take over.

Then, a fresh shot of adrenaline from the stunning scenery or the next series of curves, followed by some architectural delight on a cobblestoned street, where a tavern surprises again with delicious regional food and drink.

Alentejo is quintessential Portugal.
I came as a stranger and left as a friend. Thank to the amigos of Hertz and RideOn, Alentejo was a ride of a lifetime.
Muito obrigado e até a próxima vez.
