In partnership with The Portugal News, the electric utility bike will be helping the news team deliver newspapers to businesses within the Loulé area. The Portugal News will increasingly be using this efficient method to deliver newspapers.

The bikes act as effective advertising and are undoubtedly a great way to promote any business. The bikes can carry a weight of up to 150kgs and can easily carry over 200 papers per bike. The bikes have a top speed of 45kph with a maximum range of 120kms with no licence being required in Portugal.

DirtEbikers was created during lockdown as a way of exploring and sharing with others the hidden beauty of Portugal. An enjoyable experience for all, without walking miles, cycling or polluting the stunning landscape with petrol-guzzling motorbikes and environmentally toxic vehicles. After much research, they came across the UBCO 2x2 electric adventure bike.

The bikes are the world’s toughest 2-wheel drive electric utility bike with a separate motor in the front and rear wheels along with a low centre of gravity and a twist-and-go throttle, the UBCO bike is a highly responsive ride that is more stable, better balanced and easy to manoeuvre on almost any terrain.

Designed for exploration, built for adventure on-road or off-road, all-terrain and strong. They are multipurpose town and country bikes, perfect for commuters, delivery riders, shoppers or weekend trail warriors. The minimum age to ride the bikes is 14 years old and they recently had a 70-year-old client who said ‘I could not stop grinning for 3 hours and it was cheaper than a facelift’. All riders are assessed and the bikes are fully insured.

Most wonderfully they support a clean environment with no fuel, no emissions and no noise pollution as they are 100 percent electric. Drive with ease with no gears, easy charging with only four hours needed to fully charge.

If you are interested in exploring the Algarve off the beaten path, they do fantastic tours, with options such as the Ria Formosa to Faro Island, Fall of the Vicar, Alte and even a Quinta da Tôr Wine Tour. They also can-do custom-made tours for any special event or occasion so you can chase sunsets at ease.

For those wanting to explore the Algarve themselves, DirtEbikers also offer daily and weekly rentals and sales from their Hubs in between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo and Alfontes.

When it comes to the future, they plan to open further Hubs across Portugal. The DirtEbikers also offer a full service and maintenance programme.
