BIKE SKILLS, tools and knowledge to improve it

"I had an amazing experience with WERIDE! They are very professional and the trails are super fun!
They have the right tools and knowledge to improve your skills. I did 3 days of bike skills and improved the basics (bike positioning, cornering...) and more advanced skills for enduro racing
They filmed it in slow motion and then compared lap after lap. With these videos I was able to understand my mistakes and develop new skills."

Getting away from it all and ride!

"WE rode some great fun enduro trails outside Monchique, Algarve. The trails were a good mixture as in some were jump lines (no real gaps) some steep and technical and some just flowy and berms. All in all a good days riding albeit a fair amount of climbing given the heat for this fair skinned lad. Bikes were mint as was the guide Luis who tailored the ride to suit us. WE even got to try pork cheek for lunch which I wouldn't have known to order - a delicious treat and something new for me."

One feels the true love for the sport

"Enjoyed an half day of riding in Sintra from misty hills to sandy beaches - the trails were shaped with skill and presented through Renato in a fun and personal manner, with perfect guiding style. One feels the true love for the sport and their gem of a trail network in unparallelled varied terrain - just outside Lisboa. Recommended! Yes!"

Claudia Hopfner

"WERIDE rocks!! After a day bulleting over jumps, rocks and just awesomely shaped trails behind the backwheel of Renato, through mystical rainwoods and dusty downhills to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean , I must say that I have seldomely been riding on such a diverse terrain under such a competent and motiviting guidance as on our day with WERIDE in Sintra before!! Thank you guys, you are doing a great job and one can feel your love and respect for your beautiful treasure you have in Lisbon's backyard! Highly recommendable!!!"

The gold standard for MTB guiding in Europe

"WE had an absolutely great day of riding! I couldn't really offer any other recommendations, except maybe you could print some maps for clients only to use in case they wanted to go back to some of the trails on their own, or maybe include a "clients only" section of your website where you could upload some GPX files. The guides were great, they seemed to love riding and were happy to share their local trails with us. They were patient and took the time to pick routes that both challenged us and matched our abilities while building our confidence on the bike, while covering a unique variety of beautiful terrain. The bikes were amazing, the best bike I've ever rented, the quality far surpasses any other rental shop in Portugal. They were clearly maintained immaculately and tuned exactly to how I had specified. SPD pedals, brakes, and even the height of the seat was ready to go exactly to what I had filled out on the client form. You guys set the gold standard for MTB guiding in Europe! I will definitely be back and bringing friends!"

"Thank you guys for an awesome day out on the beautiful trails of Sintra and thanks for sharing your local knowledge with us. You haven't just introduced us to a few trails - you have shown us the area and the variety of riding in Sintra. You even enabled us to bring our dog Maya and she loved it! Thanks for the great memories and all those awesome pictures. Really, you are doing a great job! Can't wait to catch up again next year!"

Buddy riding with Robin

"I was riding with João, Renato and David. They showed me the trails in Sintra but it felt more like riding with your bike buddies than a guided tour. WE were chatting the whole time, the trails were more than great and after a while we even decided to shuttle, which was even more fun on the downhills. David didn't hesitate to lend me his glasses since mine were to dark.
After the ride Renato even came back to bring us some chourizo sandwiches and a couple of beers!
Altogether the most pleasant guided tour I ever took, the guys really know their work and especially how to make you feel not like a customer but more like a friend. I am looking forward to riding with them again. My warmest recommendations and thank you very much for this great experience."

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."

GREAT QUALITY BIKES, perfect for Sintra's terrain!

"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!"
