Sintra

One of the best shuttled guiding experiences


”The one week riding (6 Days) with WERIDE was amazing - everyone did the best to make us enjoy our visit in Sintra.

The communication during booking process with Hugo was very kind and uncomplicated and the guiding by João and Duarte outstanding, truly one of the best shuttled guiding experiences we had so far - with focus on fun, passionate riding and our abilities and skills.

The trails are really good and a great range of variation, a perfect mix of flowy and technical parts with a lot of nice features to play with.

Thanks to everyone at WERIDE - We will be back! Please stay how you are...always go big - but ... don't become too big! “

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!”

"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."

SINTRA TRAILS - A SPECIAL EXPERIENCE

"Ein Kollege und ich haben die E-Mountenbiketour in Sintra gebucht. Jose war unser Guid der uns mit einem geräumigen Multivan am Lissabon pick up point abgeholt hat und von Anfang an eine sehr gute Stimmung verbreitet hat. Trotz der entspannten Stimmung war er sehr aufmerksam und zuvorkommend. Ich bin ein erfahrener Mountainbiker, jedoch war es die erste wirkliche Trail Tour für meinen Kollegen. Jose nahm sich Zeit ihm die richtige Technik zu zeigen und vor jedem neuen Trail einen kurzen Überblick über die neuen Gegebenheiten zu verschaffen. Zu den Trails, jeder ist speziell und anderst, Wurzlig, Steine, muddy durch den „Urwald“ und am Schluss von ganz oben zum Strand wo ein kaltes Bier einen erwartet. Ein perfekter Tag der nicht besser sein hätte können.
Zum Material: die Bikes sind von top Marken unsere E-Mountenbikes (BMC) neuwertiger Zustand, Protektoren und Helme waren von POC sauber und einwandfrei!! 
Ich kann jedem die E-Baikes empfehlen, da es sehr warm ist. Mit Unterstützung aufwärts um dann abwärts die Trails besser genießen zu können. DIE TRAILS SIND DER HAMMER!"

PACKS FOR TWO in Lousã and Sintra

Lousã

"Tailor-made highly professional mountain biking tours! WE spent 5 great riding days with the WERIDE team in Sintra and Lousã. The scenery was breathtaking, the rides were tailored to our riding level and the coaches did not only ride with us, but taught us a lot about the culture and land as well. WERIDE is extremely organized, reliable and safety was always first on their mind. Their equipment is new and very well maintained. WE were amazed about the skill levels of the WERIDE coaches. They are great role models! Hopefully WE will meet again!"

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!"
