Fieldnotes from a weekend trip

What makes a trip memorable?

 

Good company, nice scenary, good food.

 

What about a good bike ride?

 

As we let the dust settle from the intense year of hard we had, we tried to find a way to escape the city (and our computer screens) and enjoy an off the grid weekend of riding bikes.

 

As it goes, we booked the time in our schedules and took the camping gear out of the closet.

 

We decided on the nice and simple Santiago Way as it's not super hard to plan. The route is marked, simple to follow and places to eat and sleep are readilly available. And more importantly power supplies are easy to find!

 

A fail proof route - fail proof bikes

 

Knowing the route we understood that most of the time we would be riding off road and long hours. We had to adjust our bike choice and consider where to charge.

 

The tools of the trade:

 

  • C800 Trekking
    • Made for this type of adventure - powerful motor for fully loaded long days in the saddle
    • Upgraded with a Ergotech Confort Seatpost for extra comfort - the route was mostly offroad after all.

 

  • C500 Trekking
    • The (lighter) baby sister. Chosen by the nimbleness and agility

 

  • M500 Wild
    • The obvious choice for and offroad ride, not so obvious for bikepacking
    • For that we did a sneaky upgrade - we added na ATB kit - more news on that to come, stay tuned 😏

 

  • E800 Urban Motion
    • Yes, you read that right, we took na urban bike off roading
    • This was our wildcard for the trip as we wanted to test the limits of this bike. It did not disappoint!
    • No upgrade, straight from the box

 

For all bikes we took an extra battery as we where planning 100km days. However we did not need to use them as we where able to be very economical with our riding.

 

The take away from the trip:

 

The best de-stresser is connecting with the outdoors.

After so much time enclosed, being able to do this trip was invigorating.

Feeling the breaze once more, getting the skin burned by the sun.

Being able to stop at the roadside and share a cold beer with your friends.

Stop at a random water hole and take a dip.

Those are the things that spark joy and clear the mind.

And doing all that without destroying our bodies.

 

This is the exact purpose of the ebike - taking you somewhere you wouldn't normally go and on that path, enjoying life a little bit more.

 

Until the next one,

cheers.

Behind BEEQ - How our ebikes are made

Designed, created and produced in Portugal, BEEQ was born out of a need to jump start a movement of change. 

  

At a critical moment for mobility when the world is beginning to think of the bicycle as a safe and healthy alternative to move around in cities, BEEQ emerges as the solution for those looking to make the smart choice - European-produced ebikes, with a focus in quality and at a competitive price. 

 

Where it all started 

  

BEEQ is a brand of RTE, one of the leading bicycles manufacturers in Europe, based in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal.  

 

Understanding and believing in the potential and the role of electric bicycles for the sustainability of our planet, the brand started as a small project within the company to explore the know-how and high-quality standards developed over its years in the industry. 

 

Joining the mobility revolution that is inspiring cities and communities takes time and a lot of hard work.  

 

The brand was "in vitro" for 3 years while we tried hard to launch with the best range possible.  

 

We perfected the models, the logo design, the strategy and message. Looking for the right partners who share the same DNA as our company, who care for the sensational experience an e-bike can offer as much as we do. 

 

Production processes where adjusted, and new technologies developed to have one of the most inovative ebike production lines out there. 

 

No detail was left to chance. 

 

From a small laboratory, to the big city 

 

The result of the BEEQ project is a set of reliable, urban, sophisticated, competent and fun e-bikes.  

 

Launched in July 2020, amid one of the craziest periods of recent history, the brand helped contribute to the unprecedented cycling boom we witness today. 

 

Gorgeous, high quality and well made e-bikes that can be purchased, safely, anywhere in Europe, in the comfort of your own home. 

 

No compromise attitude 

Since 1983 our company as developed a platform of quality and innovation in our facilities that result, today, in around 7.000 bicycles produced per day. 

 

That knowloge and standards are now being applied to make BEEQ a trustworthy, high quality staple in the electric bicycle market. 

 

Our brand is made up of a young spirited and ambitious team with scrappy product developers, designers and engineers, proudly making reliable and affordable electric bikes in Europe for the whole world to enjoy.
