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!"

"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!"

Everyday had a special highlight!

"WE had the pleasure to experience 3 days riding in Sintra with the amazing Diogo and João and then 3 days in Algarve with Luis Pedro shortly before Christmas 2017! 
WE had a great time, everyday had a special highlight and WE enjoyed it very much! 
Great organization and very great people! The guys from WERIDE put a lot of passion in their work and you can feel that in every aspect. WE will come back for sure and recommend it to go without any exception!"

"WE had an amazing time with WERIDE in Portugal. Everything was well organised and worked (mostly) perfect! The combination of 3 days riding in Sintra and 3 days riding in Algarve was awesome and gave us the opportunity to ride a wide range of different trails! I will come back for sure!"

"Perfect MTB holidays"

"WE booked our trip to Algarve at short notice, but WERIDE and especially our guide Luis Pedro organized everything perfectly. Luis knows all the good trails in the area (he maintains and builds many of them himself!) and provides great tips for your riding. Whether you prefer technical or flowy trails, Luis will put together a program that suits everyone.
I also loved the places he chose for lunch, local restaurants with typical food. Luis is not only a proficient rider, great guide and fun guy but also knows a lot about the area, its history, nature etc.
I thoroughly enjoyed my rides with WERIDE and can recommend them very much!"

Happy Birthday!

"I had the opportunity to ride with WERIDE and they did not disappoint! Luis was a skilled rider to guide around the trails of Fonte Férrea. The trails were in good condition and I had lots of fun! 
Thank you, I will be back!"

Great bike, great trails, great guide, can you ask for more?

"If you like adventures and having fun, this is the company to book! Luis (the guide) is really passionate about biking, shows you the best trails you can imagine and even tells little anedotes about Algarve area.
The rental bike was an up-to-date Transition Patrol (160mm full suspension) and really a lot of fun on the trails!
Great bike, great trails, great guide, can you ask for more? Definitely one of the best bike days I’ve ever had!"

Guide to Guide with... Martin Ready

"Luis, I had a great time and was really pumped to ride trails with you. I especially liked that you are building new trails and maintaining existing trails. Looking forward to coming back and seeing new trails and experiencing the culture and environment of the Algarve."
