Amazing footage back from 2014, by a happy AlegriaRide customer!
“This is a movie I made based on a template from GoPro Studio. I got a 125cc SYM scooter from AlegriaRide Rent-a-Scooter and spent an entire day filming Lisbon with my girlfriend. I’ve also recorded some footage of the beach in Estoril, the seashore from Cascais, and a free open-air music festival next to Torre de Belém. Guys at AlegriaRide were very nice and thoughful and I hope I can repeat it very soon!
I hope you like it!”
The next one to enjoy Lisbon could be you! Book here!
Alegria Ride in Madeira, the lost gem of the Atlantic
Have you ever heard about one of the most impressive new year’s fireworks of the world? How about Madeira Wine? No? Well, how about Cristiano Ronaldo? Ah… Well, the one thing that all these have in common is the fact they all come from Madeira.
Madeira is a set of two islands: the main island and Porto Santo (basically a beach colony). Funchal is the capital and the starting point for an amazing journey on the Portuguese islands near the tropics. You can easily get there with Easyjet, from Lisbon at a very affordable price.
Once there you’ll find yourself in another dimension. Starting with air temperatures near 30 degrees Celsius almost all year round, whale sightings, delicious fish, historical wines, ocean swimming pools and it’s winding roads just asking to be ridden!
For your pleasure, Alegria Ride has the most spectacular way of experiencing all of this on two wheels. Look for Alegria Ride in Funchal! Feel free to contact us about anything you want to know!
Address and contacts can be found on our Facebook page here!
Porto Scooter Parade happens during the month of June.
Porto is definitely a scooter driver’s paradise. From the steep hills full of historical landmarks to the riverbank and ocean road, everything looks twice as beautiful when seen from a bike.
The Scooter Parade Porto is an event for the scooter enthusiasts. This usually takes place in the city of Porto once a year and celebrates the joy and benefits of driving a scooter, helping to create awareness for safety, ecology and lifestyle. The 2016 encounter is still not scheduled so stay “scooted” for news if you want to be the first to know!
The organisation also has a Facebook page that you can visit here.
O Porto é sem dúvida um destino espectacular para se viajar de moto ou scooter. Desde o seu centro histórico cheio de subidas íngremes, até ao rio e oceano, tudo parece mais bonito quando é visto de uma moto.
A Scooter Parade Porto é um evento para os entusiastas das scooters. Normalmente acontece uma vez por ano e tem como objectivo comemorar o prazer que é guiar uma scooter. O evento tenta também incutir na mentalidade das pessoas os benefícios para elas mesmas e para o meio ambiente, deste meio de transporte.

For each letter of the alphabet we will tell you three features of renting a scooter with us, that start with that letter!
The three “A”
Most historical centers and cities in Portugal are medieval. And when most of the roads were built they were not thinking of enough space for two cars (or carriages!). Furthermore they are built on rugged hills, so there are a lot of steep and narrow paths.
Renting a scooter you will get the chance to ride through them without any effort, smoothly!
Everybody knows scooters are more economical and sustainable way of urban mobility. In Portugal, a little bit like everywhere else, the mind-set is also changing and people are becoming aware that this is the next big alternative. From fuel costs to reduced CO2. Be part of this change!
