Sintra and Terras de Bouro

Absolutely awesome experience!

I did two daytours with WERIDE guys. First one in Serra da Sintra, second one in Terras de Bouro. Massive variance in trail types in both locations, knowledge and tips on the trails spot on!

Also the Transition rental bikes right up there for the task!

Muito obrigado João Mourão & João Gomes! Muito prazer e até a proxima vez!

Amazing MTB singletrack in Northern Portugal!!

“WE had an AMAZING experience riding with WERIDE in Northern Portugal!! First of all, our guide, Gomes, was excellent & very helpful. Additionally, the terrain & the views along the route were incredible!! We also had a wonderful customer service experience. Initially, we had been planning on riding earlier in the week, but we had to change our plans because of rain. WERIDE was very accommodating!! I highly recommend WERIDE to anyone who is seeking a serious MTB experience in Portugal!!”

This company is simply the best!

“First, let me say, mountain bike riding in Portugal is incredible. Second, there is no better company to guide you there than WERIDE! I have ridden in the Dolomites, New Zealand, Whistler, and Moab and I will tell you the riding in Portugal meets or exceeds all those areas. It also boasts a huge variety of terrain. Most of the trails you will ride have been lovingly maintained and improved by the team of WERIDE, who know every inch of the trails. Hugo and Duarte were our guides throughout the trip and they took care of every detail. We also enjoyed incredible lunches and dinners at various local restaurants. Honestly, while Hugo and Duarte catered to us like fancy clientele the treated us more like longtime friends. This company is simply the best.”

”The trip of a lifetime. Hugo and team were unbelievable! The trails were pristine, guides were incredible and the hospitality was heartfelt. Can't thank the team enough. Already talking about a repeat visit.”

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!”

"Want a premium bike experience and see Portugal from the inside?
Get yourself a new ally with WERIDE!"

Charge down Sintra's hillsides, the view is gigantic,
and end up on beautiful beaches over the Atlantic.

Enjoy a great three course lunch at Refúgio do Ciclista,
and when full, do not forget that outside there is a barista.

Follow the steady back wheel of guide João
and you might end the day in a restaurant with a glass of Licor Beirão."

"This year has been a great riding and racing year in Norway. I have been competing in the Norwegian national enduro series (80/20 enduro series) and have been having a lot of fun rides around in Norway. In the late Autumn the days in Norway are getting shorter and the temperature is getting colder. Together with four friends WE decided to try out Portugal!
WERIDE answered our emails quick and described what seemed to be a great week of riding. The pick-up in Lisboa was on time and WE were driven to The Lodge. Nice rooms, sauna, jacuzzi and good breakfast. These things fill you with energy for the long days of riding!
Our days riding in Sintra were great. The trails were filled with small berms, jumps and even some bigger drops. The guides were showing us the best lines and always warning if something big was coming up. WE were mostly riding in the woods, but did also have some longer rides all the way down to the beach. There were some days with rain, but the trails were in great riding conditions even if when wet. All the small berms made it possible to keep the speed up.
The last two days WE stayed in the old village of Gondramaz. The house looked old on the outside, but was bright and modern on the inside. When WE stayed there, WE were both riding in Gondramaz and Lousã. Gondramaz has a fast and flowy terrain. I had a great time trying to keep up with one of the faster guides. Lousã had rougher terrain and is actually the Autumn to Spring training trails for various World Cup downhillers. WE had a fun time trying to gap the different sections with roots and rocks and trying to keep the momentum. Riding in Lousã will make you a strong rider!
When WE stayed in Gondramaz WE went out to two different local restaurants with our guides. The local cuisine was very good, and at affordable prices. The nice, precise and funny guides made our whole stay great!"

"I went to Portugal in the beginning of November with a group of friends, aiming to extend our riding season. With temperatures about to hit sub-zero back in Norway, Lisbon greeted us with a balmy 15-20 degrees Celsius!
Our guides João and Hugo did a great job showing us a wide variety of trails, from flowing natural single tracks to man-made lines filled with berms and jumps - challenging even the strongest riders in our group. The dense surrounding vegetation, combined with a few rain showers, gave us a feeling of riding in a tropical forest at times!
When the weather improved WE enjoyed the long ride from the top of the Sintra hillsides all the way down to the Atlantic Ocean - nearly 500 vertical meters and an experience both in terms of riding and the amazing views.
Besides the riding, what impressed me the most was the effort put in by WERIDE to show us other parts of Portuguese culture - from the old village of Gondramaz above Lousã, where WE spent 2 nights in a charming stone house, to the seemingly endless supply of delicious and inexpensive local cuisine. This kind enthusiasm for tradition and local knowledge really set WERIDE apart from other guiding operations WE've experienced, and made our trip into an experience greater than what WE expected!
I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Portugal! From beginner to expert rider, I really recommend trying the WERIDE experience!"
