Perfect winter vacation for a North European

Three days of epic riding in an amazing, green forest. Perfect winter vacation for a North European!!  We managed about half of the trails in three days. and of course tried some of them again and again.  Joâo , our guide was THE BEST . Funny, skilled, and had ability to see our levels.  We were a nice small group and felt really safe. He also challenged us to make obstacles we might not have done without a guide 

What WERIDE gave us? 
💚 Nature
💚 Nice food in local restaurants
💚 Some of the most playful trails ever ridden. 
💚 Sunset riding with a view of the Atlantic ocean

WE had three awesome days of riding in Sintra, with João and Hugo as our guides. The riding was very good, we had mint conditions everyday since the trails got some rain before WE arrived. Great variation in trails and views, from chocolate-mousse-loam in the forests to superfast-dusty trails in the open. With WERIDE it is all about the lifestyle and the hospitality is outstanding from the guys. Riding with João felt like riding with a buddy you had known for a long time. 

I am already looking forward to ride with WERIDE in Portugal again, such a nice country and people!

EPIC....
WE had so much fun on the trails and with the guides. Beautiful views and fantastic trails through Sintra Mountains. Really, everything was perfect!

Enduro at Terras de Bouro in the North of Portugal

“I just wanted to say thank you very much again, because I had a blast with João!

He was the perfect guide: knowing the trails like his own living room, skilled & stylish riding, loving the nature, funny and so on. He even told me a thing or two about your country and WE had great discussions. In the end he also solved a little parking ticket issue for me, so keep this guy at WERIDE because a guide can’t do more for a client. Give him my regards!

I definitely want to come back with some friends and shred in the north again! And maybe there will also be time to visit some other places...

So thank you again and keep up the good work!

"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."

Best trails WE have ever ridden

"WERIDE is an extremely professional, hospitable, and fun organization. We had the most incredible three days riding in Sintra in July and will be bragging about how lucky we felt to experience Portugal by mountain biking for a long time. We hope to bring friends and family back in the future so they will believe us when we say that these are hands-down the best trails we have ever ridden. The bike rentals were superb, lunch each day was perfect, and our accommodations were flawless. WERIDE is about mountain biking at its core, but on top of it all, we felt so welcomed by all the people we met along the way, which really created an incredible cultural experience. We had the pleasure of riding with a lot of different guides, who were each so brilliant, friendly, and talented. We felt as though we left our WERIDE experience with new friends and the best memories. We hope to be back soon!"

From Canada to Portugal WERIDE!

"João and Hugo. I can not express in words how incredibly thankful and blessed I was to be able to ride with you both. I had the most amazing experience riding and hanging out with you guys! This way of life you have developed is absolute perfection! Thank you for the skills and tips you gave me to improve myself as a rider. Sintra’s trails truly humbled me as a rider and I now know more on how I can improve myself. I hope to see you guys again soon, possibly in June when I come for vacation! Abraços grandes, muito obrigado!! Até logo amigos!"

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

Karsten Skadkær Møller,  "Vi-King"

 

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!"

"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!"

Dominik Berger

 

"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!"
