"WE hired guides for two separate days with WERIDE. I am an experienced cross country/trail rider, and my 17 year old son is a novice. Out first guide José was terrific. He was a super nice guy and very knowledgeable about the area. He tailor made our ride to the hardtail bikes that WE had that day and WE hit mostly beginner/intermediate terrain. He took time to point out local landmarks and turned the ride into a part history lesson which WE liked. ( I'm sure he would not have continued if WE didn't seem interested). He was an excellent rider and gave my son pointers as needed. All around it was an excellent experience. 
WE had so much fun on the first ride WE decided to hire WERIDE again for a second half day session a couple of days later. This time WE kicked it up a notch and rented full suspension enduro bikes through WERIDE. This was a great decision, the bikes were high quality and in mint condition. Our guide for this ride was Joao. He was also a highly skilled rider and guide and designed our day to suit the terrain WE were looking to ride. WE started off with a long downhill to the ocean. The ride started by van service dropping us at the top of the scenic hill (small mountain), so no uphill riding was needed to begin. Joao read my cues as I was the fastest rider in our 4 person crew. He rode in front always looking to see how much I was pushing him and kept in front just enough to keep me flying by the edge of my seat. It was an insane ride and one of the best and most scenic downhill runs in my life. Later WE did some true downhill switchback riding through the woods. Again I was pushing Joao pretty hard and I paid the price with a big head over the handlebars wipeout and plenty of blood to show for it. But he was on the case with his first aid kit and WE were back on the trail in a few minutes. My son and the other man on the trip had a great time as well and were able to ride at their own pace. I can confirm that even the most expert rider can be challenged by the terrain WERIDE has access to. They will customize your ride! Such a great group of guys and easy to work worth - scenery is amazing too! I couldn't recommend them more! Unless you brought your own top-notch bikes, I recommend renting theirs."
