Celebrate diversity and take a sidecar ride

One of the most interesting aspects of our sidecar tours is the opportunity to meet different people from several places of the world, of all ages, who end up having in common the fact that they look for a different and unique experience during their holiday’s time in the Algarve or in Lisbon

One of the most interesting aspects of our sidecar tours is the opportunity to meet different people from several places of the world, of all ages, who end up having in common the fact that they look for a different and unique experience during their holiday’s time in the Algarve or in Lisbon.

It does not matter your age, it does not matter your gender or physical condition. The sidecar is for everyone! And it is really incredible how our sidecar tours have an excellent acceptance among people of the most diverse ages, genres and physical circumstances. From 7 years old to 90 years old or more!

In 2015, for example, we had a couple from Hawaii, cruise customers, with the age of 79 who loved our Postcard Collection tour in Portimão.

This year, at the age of 81, they returned to Portimao on a round-the-world cruise and made a point of repeating our sidecar tour because the experience made them feel capable of everything, made them feel so alive!

We have also transported people with disabilities in the sidecar who reported that they felt safe, comfortable and free.

Another unforgettable story was the surprise request for a wedding on The Most Beautiful Beaches tour with the groom declaring himself and making the request at the lovely top of Praia da Marinha cliff.

The stories are numerous, tremendous and it is truly comforting to feel that we provide a lifetime experience. It is incredible! A sidecar ride is actually part of the bucket list for so many people around the world!

What are you waiting for? Celebrate diversity and take a sidecar ride!

One of our all time favorite tours!

We previously went on the Bike My Side tour in Lisbon and it was the most enjoyable tour we had ever been on…now Daniel has to share that distinction with Delfim! The tour to the beaches was wonderful. Delfim is a great guide with such a nice personality and very interesting information about the places we saw. Being in the open gives a much different perspective and a panoramic view. It’s a comfortable ride and we old retired folks had a blast…you could tell by the smiles and thumbs up we were the envy of many. We will definitely book with Bike My Side again when we return to the Algarve and absolutely recommend them.

Superb way to travel round the beautifull beaches of Portugal
Fantastic day from start to finish. Prompt pickup at hotel. Delfim and Philipe were very experienced bike riders, the bikes were superb. Felt really safe and comfy in sidecar. Views were unbelievable , we would never have got to see all these beautiful sites by coach as the bikes went up narrow side streets through beautiful little towns..Delfim was very knowledgable about the history of the places we visited and it was a very interesting tour, we learnt a lot about the Portuguese scenery and lifestyle. Would defiantly book a tour next time we visit again…well worth the money…both couples thoroughly enjoyed the day !!! Thanks again guys. 🙂

The best entry to Lisboa

To start your Lisboa stay with Daniel is the best you can do. It was fun, Daniel told us so much about the city, and it was a fantastic ride. This was the first time as a tourist I was permanently photographed by other tourists 🙂
The half day tour was enough for us. You get to all the interesting places, you can visit on your own later on.
Thanks a lot for cool ride Daniel 🙂

Imagine yourself riding in Lisbon or in the Algarve a vintage black Sidecar, full of glamor, charm and history, feeling the pleasant breeze of the wind, the warmth of the sun, discovering new perspectives, new ways. Have fun, feel safe, away from the hubbub of the tours filled with confusion. More than a ride or a tour, discover a new experience, a new way to know our Culture, History, Nature, Food and Nightlife.

The history of our black Ural Sidecar dates back to the 40s of the twentieth century. It was designed by the Russians based on German BMW R71 a motorbike diverted from Sweden to Russia. By the end of World War II, about 10,000 Ural Sidecar were sent to the front line.

From the earliest days, more than 3 million Ural Sidecars already passed through the doors of the factory in Irbit – in the Ural Mountains in Siberia, where they continue to be manufactured, as before in an almost artisanal. Apart from its history, our Ural Sidecar is plain black, which gives it that irresistible vintage, iconic look, full of style. Remember the Indiana Jones or Tintin in their sidecars? Now you can experience the same feeling …
