Infinite possibilities for an Enduro bike ride in Algarve!

Infinite possibilities for an Enduro bike ride in Algarve!

"Had 2 awesome days riding with Luis, one of the best bike days in the last years.
After the first email contact - fast reply - pickup and service at the door of my house in Portugal - excellent. FULL DAY package including rental bike 120 euros is enough but for the exclusive service is cheap! 
First day was about exploring the beaches - nice skills, nice views and best beaches at the ALGARVE. Flowy trails around the coast line with perfect summer conditons. Don't forget the sunscreen and enough water for drinking. Luis is a very nice guide looking always behind for the following rider.
The second day was at the mountains of Monchique and it was a great Enduro training.
He showed me trails that only he could found - real nature trails with different conditions, rocky, gravel, dusty, trails full of leaves, and different skills.
But Luis always gives the right advice when in difficult sections. He helps a lot when you ride the trails for the first time.
I hope to come back in October or March and WERIDE again."

"João was our guide and we had the BEST time with him. He showed us a part of Sintra WE would never have been able to explore ourselves without getting terribly lost. My husband found WERIDE after WE were searching online for high quality mtb Rental bikes. My husband is a good mountain biker and wanted to make sure WE weren't going to rent poor quality. WE initially thought WE didn't need a guide, but boy were WE thankful WE went with João!! WE would have waisted so much time getting lost, taking the wrong trails, etc. João quickly gagged our skill level and took us down some incredibly fun and challenging trails. After 3 hours of straight biking, my husband who typically can go longer was beat. João really gagged our skill level well and matched it with challenging terrain. Also the bikes were of great quality and perfect for the Sintra terrain. We HIGHLY recommend WERIDE!"

DOUBLE PACK doubles the fun!

"A perfect combination of exploring the epic scenery of Portugal and challenging as well as fun trail riding, guided by experienced local riders! WE had three great days of riding at the Algarve and another three days in Sintra and Lisbon. But WE could have stayed another two weeks because there is just so much more to explore. And with the guiding provided by WERIDE WE didn't have any troubles finding the trails, finding our lines, finding a local place to eat off the beaten track. It was not only the riding that made this trip a great experience, it was the entire package that made our stay so pleasant: the nature, the ocean, the food, the friendly people. For us it was a first taste of Portugal, scouting for adventures and stories, and we will very likely return with our cameras to do a proper story about WERIDE Portugal for LINES MAGAZINE
Thanks for having us!"

"Wonderful experience. Exceeded my expectations. Energetic, encouraging, and passionate guides. I put my full trust in the guides as I followed behind them on the winding trails. Wide range of challenging, exciting trails and easier, relaxing, flowing trails. WE peddled up steep inclines and bombed down gravel hills. Exhilarating! Breathtaking scenery. Perfect mix of history, culture, and nature. Top of the line bikes and equipment. Entire experience truly catered to the individual. Would do it again and again."

Hello again! This is my third time with WERIDE!

Hello again! This is my third time with WERIDE!

"Hello again :-)
By now I went out biking with WERIDE for 3 times.
The first time was in November 16. I have been on a business trip in Lisbon so I took the chance and booked a day of guiding in Sintra. But I had no bike no protection and no bike wear with me so Hugo organised everything for me :-) He was very patient with me and uncomplicated. Then I met Miguel (the guide) at Sintra who brought everything for me. The biking was a combination of pedaling until lunch and some shuttle assisted uplifts after lunch, so actually just perfect :-)"

"The second time was during a three-week-roadtrip this year in May. And again Hugo was very patient with me and tryed to organise everything to be fully satisfied. What wasnt easy because we were just 2 guys and pretty spontaneous ;-P
But he could handle this very well. So he "sent" us to Algarve to meet Luis and ride with him the trails at Fonte Ferrea in Sao Bras and the Red-Dirt-Cliffs at the coastline which was really amazing. Again we did a combination of pedaling and shuttle. And the trails there where awesome, technical and completely different to Sintra. 
Pretty similar but still different to that was the third time, one week later at Monchique/ Marmelete. There we met Luis again but this time he drove the van. Because there we had a full day of shuttle with Nuno as guide. That was another great day of enduro biking in Portugal! 
Miguel, Luis and Nuno they all were really good guides and nice guys. We had so much fun riding with every single one of these guys! And we could learn many things from bike settings over biking skills to specifics of the particular region...
So thanks again a lot for all of that guys.
And thanks Hugo for all the good hints concerning biking, camping and all the stuff ;-)
See u in September! 
Cheers buddies"

AMAZING Trip! FANTASTIC Trails! PACKS FOR TWO!

AMAZING Trip! FANTASTIC Trails! PACKS FOR TWO!

"WE visited the Sintra area for our biking vacation and WERIDE made it an amazing trip! The Sintra area trails were fantastic hand built single track trails and our guide, LP, was extremely considerate of our needs the entire time and suited the riding to our needs, WE had sooo much fun riding with him. The company proves to be very professional, polite and their gear was in tip-top shape. WERIDE made our vacation VERY seamless and soo easy it was actually like a vacation!! Due to our experience with WERIDE, we will definitely visit Portugal again and no doubt use them as guides!!"

Best day riding in 16 years!

Best day riding in 16 years!

"Had an awesome day riding with Miguel, possibly the best day riding I've had in the past 16ish years I've been riding!

WE rode all around Sintra which has an awesome network of very varied trails from flowy trails to technical rock gardens. Not only did Miguel show us around but he also continued riding with us after a crash which would have ended my day! When your guide manages to get 3 flats and a broken nose - yet you still had the best day I think you can safely say it's a pretty special place to ride and an awesome guide - Miguel even drove us back to our Airbnb in Lisbon.

Oh, and the rental bikes were awesome and great value for money.
If you want to go riding near Lisbon you can't go wrong with these guys!"

Joyful and funny, kind and nice, accurate and clear about the info and quick to answer my requests. Great guiding and riding, and I will want to ride with him next time!

An organised tour and guiding with really good quality overall, fun and easy going.

It was all about mixing sports and culture, flowy trail riding, lifestyle, nature and mountains and its unique trails while having fun with a bike."

Ride all day in the magical mountains of Sintra with WERIDE!

"Once again I had the privilege of doing an all day ride at the magical mountains of Sintra. It was my second ride with WERIDE and like the first, this one was spectacular! WE started up the hill with breathtaking views to reach the top of the ridge and then descend amazing tracks until the very end, and then start all over again. Always guided by the experienced and friendly Hugo from WERIDE. It was an unforgettable experience! And I am already looking forward to my third ride!!"

WECAMPS Algarve - Bike Skills with Anders Kielland

WECAMPS Algarve - Bike Skills with Anders Kielland

"Participated in a WECAMPS in Algarve over 7 days. This is most likely the smartest thing I have ever done in my biking carrier. I have trail biked every week for years, therefore I was surprised to see how much I still could learn. The course were well adapted to my needs and goals. The instructors was genuinely interested in teaching and had the necessary skill to do it. The course contained multiple aspect of biking as bike set-up, position on bike, trail to downhill tracks, pump tracks, bike specific warm-up and stretching routines and more. This company take their job very seriously. I can highly recommend them."
