Whether you’re cycling through Europe or training for the next Tour de Force this little tool will come in handy. We’ve all seen Swiss Army knives before, but this Swiss Army Bike Tool by Victorinox is packed full of tools needed to fix your bike in a pinch.

 

It weighs in at 3.5 ounces and is small enough to fit in your pocket, so it won’t take up room in your pack or on your bike. The Bike Tool is equipped with five tools in all: an L-wrench, a tire lever, a stainless steel bit adapter, eight bits for common screws and an impact-proof plastic holder for the bits.

 

Rather than fold out like a Swiss Army Knife, the Bike Tool actually disassembles easily to give you access to all of the parts. When put together the edges are rounded so you don’t have to worry about anything poking you in the side while you’re riding along.

 

It doesn’t come with some of the cool perks of a regular Swiss Army product, like an emergency corkscrew — which always comes in handy – but it does exactly what it’s designed for fairly well. At a price of $49.50 you might find it a little steep, but it’s put together well enough to justify the price.

Visiting Madeira

When someone mentions travel to Portugal, they probably mean visiting Lisbon or Porto. Southwest of Portugal proper, however, is an autonomous Portuguese archipelago filled with great wine, beautiful botanical gardens and a wonderful climate.

Pastel de Nata in Portugal

While it’s unlikely you’d go all the way to Lisbon, Portugal, for just one dish, there’s certainly one bite you must have while you’re there: the egg tart. Pastel de nata (cream pastry) is a national obsession that has become a bucket-list bite for nearly every traveler to the country’s seaside capital. Fortunately for tourists, the city’s most iconic landmark, Belém Tower, is located just across the street and down the shoreline from the city’s undisputed powerhouse of pastel, Pastéis de Bélem. Unfortunately for visitors, the line leading to Pastéis de Bélem’s bakery counter may be the longest line found anywhere in the city, as salivating hordes wait their turn to taste the original, secret recipe invented by the monks of the nearby Jerónimos Monastery in Santa Maria de Bélem, itself an architecture masterpiece that places it at the top of any Lisbon must-list.
