MTB friendship from Denmark, Venezuela and Sweden

MTB friendship from Denmark, Venezuela and Sweden

 

I ran away from the cold Danish Winter, and stayed a month in Portugal with my MTB. 
It has been a perfect month, and one of the big reasons for this are the guys from WERIDE. I can't tell how great they are, so you better go riding with them to find out on your own. They are top professional guides who put the customer experience first, extremely friendly and kind people and great riders! They make you feel welcome and the whole WERIDE spirit makes you feel part of a it all rather than just a customer at a MTB tour company. Go ride, Go to Portugal and go with WERIDE - you won't regret it! 
During my trip I both had friends and my girlfriend visiting, and like me they all loved the days on the trails with WERIDE.
My girlfriend rented one of WERIDE e-bikes for the two days she was riding here, and it was a perfect choice so we could ride together. No matter if you are really experienced or more new to mountain biking, or even if you have different levels of riding all-together, WERIDE can offer you great days on the trails

Hi WERIDE. Thanks for some amazing days at the Sintra mountains. You got it all, nice tracks, good shuttle service and very talented guides that put the customers first. Hope to visit you again next winter, and hopefully more than 4 days. All the best!

Anders Pedersen, "Annihilator"

 

Simply the best people in the world. Just remember to call that drop "Lucifer" (Duarte knows). Seriously, you guys rock!!! Keep going, the World needs more people like you!

Fredy J Bravo Vinseiro, "Latino"

 

Stayed in Colares and did four day rides (two Enduro, two shuttling) with WERIDE. Had an amazing time riding with super great guides Duarte and João, met new friends and was challenged by the master class trails in Sintra's forests! Will definitely come back again!

Algarve MTB holiday      - Local Pack -     "The perfect start to the enduro season 2018!"

Algarve MTB holiday - Local Pack - "The perfect start to the enduro season 2018!"

"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!"

Daytour - Coastline Ride in Carvoeiro

Daytour - Coastline Ride in Carvoeiro

"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!"

Everyday had a special highlight!

Everyday had a special highlight!

"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!"

Dave Spielmann

"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!"

Dinis Poté

"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."

"Perfect MTB holidays"

"Perfect MTB holidays"

"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!"

Matthias Roehrl

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

"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!"

Honestly it was amazing! - Kristen and Shaun

Honestly it was amazing! - Kristen and Shaun

"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!"

RIDE with a PRO - Jan Sucher and Emanuel Pombo

RIDE with a PRO - Jan Sucher and Emanuel Pombo

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!!!!
