"Best 2 half-days spent in Cascais for me. Thanks to Luis Pedro for patiently repeating the basic mtb skills and drills with me with Hugo shadowing. A good reminder exercise and assessment of rider's ability before hitting the trails. João and Duarte then showed me some of the most exciting trails in Sintra. The dancing and weaving around the tight flowy singletracks at the "bridges trail", drinking spring water at the fountain trail, going down some gnarly technical rocky and rooty steps and drops and jumping the double gaps at "17 sticks trail" was most exhilarating. They are careful to walk and explain the choices of line before committing the trickier sections. I have learnt a lot from just 2 short days of riding with them.
I had a small accident but Duarte was very kind and went out of his way to take care of me right up to my hotel. Kudos to your good team João!! Will ride with you soon in Singapore on your next visit."
