"The perfect start to the enduro season 2018!
We booked 5 days of riding in advance, around Algarve. Our accommodation (Hotel Faro) in the center of Faro was great (countless bars and restaurants within walking distance).
But above all the riding was superb. Our guide LP showed us not only the most beautiful trails around Algarve, but also gave us an insight into the life and culture of Portugal. "Never skip a dessert for lunch and dinner" (chocolate muse and almond fig cake are highly recommended). It was a joy to try all the specialties of Portuguese cuisine.
I had decided to use my cotic bfe hardtail as the weapon of action. After five days of riding, I can record that everything is possible on this trails. The bike was very playful and super fast while accelerating out of the curves. But for the rough stuff (and there's quite a few) my hands and butt would have been very grateful for a rear suspension.
I had an amazing time in Algarve and there will be a second time for sure. Thanks to the team of WERIDE especially to LP!"
"WE booked a holiday pack (LOCAL PACK) with 5 days of riding in advance. All in all WE stayed 7 nights in a great hotel (Hotel Faro, 4 stars) with a rooftop pool in Algarve. Unfortunately the temperatures were still too cold to jump into the pool. WE had temperatures reaching from 5°C to 14°C. Our guide told us, it was one of the coldest winters here he´d ever experienced.
It was great to have a guide with us who knew the area, so WE didn´t have to look up the routs ourselfs. It was less stressful that way. In addition to that, he recommended good places to eat and had a lot of great information about the people, culture and area of Algarve to share.
WE had an amazing time in Algarve and it is worth a visit.
Thanks LP for guiding us!"
"Even if it was completely offseason tourism (January) everything worked quite perfect. WE had an awesome ride with perfectly working enduro bikes and a great guide (thx Luis Pedro ;P)!! He showed us some of the best trails along the coastline near Carvoeiro... Besides the great ride, WE talked a lot about bikes, surfing and technical stuff! LP also connected us to a nice surf station in Faro for catching some waves. WE will visit Portugal again for sure! On this occasion WE will explore the other Bike Spots with WERIDE and spend some more time on these perfect trails!"
"WE had the pleasure to experience 3 days riding in Sintra with the amazing Diogo and João and then 3 days in Algarve with Luis Pedro shortly before Christmas 2017!
WE had a great time, everyday had a special highlight and WE enjoyed it very much!
Great organization and very great people! The guys from WERIDE put a lot of passion in their work and you can feel that in every aspect. WE will come back for sure and recommend it to go without any exception!"
"WE had an amazing time with WERIDE in Portugal. Everything was well organised and worked (mostly) perfect! The combination of 3 days riding in Sintra and 3 days riding in Algarve was awesome and gave us the opportunity to ride a wide range of different trails! I will come back for sure!"
"A minha esposa e eu passámos um dia fantástico na companhia do guia Luis Pedro no Algarve, onde pudemos desfrutar dos magníficos percursos de enduro, conselhos, profissionalismo e bom ambiente que a WERIDE tem para nos oferecer. Obrigado WERIDE!"
"Had a very nice Christmas ride with Luis Pedro in São Brás de Alportel. Very nice trails and chill vibe within the group. Looking forward to explore Portugal with WERIDE."
"WE booked our trip to Algarve at short notice, but WERIDE and especially our guide Luis Pedro organized everything perfectly. Luis knows all the good trails in the area (he maintains and builds many of them himself!) and provides great tips for your riding. Whether you prefer technical or flowy trails, Luis will put together a program that suits everyone.
I also loved the places he chose for lunch, local restaurants with typical food. Luis is not only a proficient rider, great guide and fun guy but also knows a lot about the area, its history, nature etc.
I thoroughly enjoyed my rides with WERIDE and can recommend them very much!"
"I had the opportunity to ride with WERIDE and they did not disappoint! Luis was a skilled rider to guide around the trails of Fonte Férrea. The trails were in good condition and I had lots of fun!
Thank you, I will be back!"

"WE had the pleasure of riding with Pedro in Sintra and Luis in Algarve and both experiences made our trip! The guides were able to modify the routes based on our individual abilities (my boyfriend is a stronger rider) and customize the routes so WE both were challenged but safe.
Pedro did a great job of prefacing the trail ahead and calling out specifics before WE rode them. Luis was great in supporting and detailing the route - coast along the way which made the day so much fun! WE got to see the coast while capturing our trip with photos along the way.
Both guides were very professional and such good riders. The best WE have ever seen!! There were the views of a lifetime and WE are now more motivated than ever to improve our riding and come back for more! Thank you, thank you, thank you WERIDE!"
Sintra is all about opportunities, you can explore that...
The guys from WERIDE helped me to seize those opportunities for two full days. On the first ride I was guided by the super fit guide, Duarte Medeiros. No surrender! Six hours of epic single-tracks with 1400 vertical meters pedalled for more than 50km. Almost no asphalt or gravel ridden. Authentic Portuguese lunch at a local restaurant. Next day WE went on a completely different PRO RIDING concept, the RIDE with a PRO, with Enduro World Series rider, downhill champion Emanuel Pombo, and support from another guide (David Gouveia) for the videos and pictures and uplifts. WE began with skills and technical lessons with high level of professionality including on-spot video analysis and an individual designed program. Next WE pushed my limits on fast and technical trails through the breathtaking mountain of Sintra. Then I witnessed Pombo style with it's very own airborne interpretation of biking. Nice features like shuttle uphills, photo-shooting and transfers to/from accommodation were included. The potent Enduro-rig left no questions or doubts!! I must RIDE ON!!!!
