From 'Net' to the Mountains

"I'm a very passionate mountain biker that came to Lisbon for the WebSummit. I booked a full day ride in the Sintra mountains with WERIDE including a top end mountain bike. The service was amazing from pick-up until drop-off. Hugo picked me up at my AirBnB in Lisbon and took me to Miguel who was going to be my guide for the ride. 

As I travel a lot and always try to find a local guide or company that can show me the local trails and rent me a bike, I've seen a lot. Servies and levels vary a lot, especially on the rental bikes. Not so here. WERIDE only have top end bikes that are in superb condition. I didn't have to adjust anything at all. The bike was like tailor made for me. 

Miguel took took me for a great 40km ride up and down the Sintra Mountains on Enduro/DH style trails. WE took a lunch break at a great local restaurant were I had freshly charcoal grilled Mackerel and a beer. What a treat! WE then climbed back up to the top and descended all the way down to the beach surrounded by a breathtaking scenery. 

Hugo and Miguel are very skilled riders and have been involved in building and maintaining several of trails in Sintra. They know this area (and Portugal in general) like the palm of their hands. I warmly recommend anybody who loves mountain biking (regardless of their skill-level) to hit the trails with WERIDE. They are simply Pro's, very friendly and attentive. I wold have loved to do the magical Lisbon by Night Ride as well but I ran out of time on this trip.

I am definitely coming back !"

Enjoyed every second of it!

"I just contacted Hugo from WERIDE on Wednesday and asked if it was possible to ride with them two days later on Friday. After a short email conversation everything was arranged. I got picked up at the hotel by João in Lisbon and we drove to Sintra area. My guide Miguel brought the bike and we started our tour. All I can say from now on is that it was an absolutely stunning experience. I enjoyed every second about it. WE were riding and shredding the trails with our bikes til late afternoon. My legs got a little bit tired, but thats no wonder after a 40km trip. To sum it up a little bit: you can expect professional guides who know everything about the area and are experts in riding their bike! They concentrate on your own skill level and make anything possible for you to have a great time! I can totally recommend these guys from WERIDE! See you soon!"
