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!”

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!"

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!"

One feels the true love for the sport

"Enjoyed an half day of riding in Sintra from misty hills to sandy beaches - the trails were shaped with skill and presented through Renato in a fun and personal manner, with perfect guiding style. One feels the true love for the sport and their gem of a trail network in unparallelled varied terrain - just outside Lisboa. Recommended! Yes!"

Claudia Hopfner

"WERIDE rocks!! After a day bulleting over jumps, rocks and just awesomely shaped trails behind the backwheel of Renato, through mystical rainwoods and dusty downhills to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean , I must say that I have seldomely been riding on such a diverse terrain under such a competent and motiviting guidance as on our day with WERIDE in Sintra before!! Thank you guys, you are doing a great job and one can feel your love and respect for your beautiful treasure you have in Lisbon's backyard! Highly recommendable!!!"

The gold standard for MTB guiding in Europe

"WE had an absolutely great day of riding! I couldn't really offer any other recommendations, except maybe you could print some maps for clients only to use in case they wanted to go back to some of the trails on their own, or maybe include a "clients only" section of your website where you could upload some GPX files. The guides were great, they seemed to love riding and were happy to share their local trails with us. They were patient and took the time to pick routes that both challenged us and matched our abilities while building our confidence on the bike, while covering a unique variety of beautiful terrain. The bikes were amazing, the best bike I've ever rented, the quality far surpasses any other rental shop in Portugal. They were clearly maintained immaculately and tuned exactly to how I had specified. SPD pedals, brakes, and even the height of the seat was ready to go exactly to what I had filled out on the client form. You guys set the gold standard for MTB guiding in Europe! I will definitely be back and bringing friends!"

"Thank you guys for an awesome day out on the beautiful trails of Sintra and thanks for sharing your local knowledge with us. You haven't just introduced us to a few trails - you have shown us the area and the variety of riding in Sintra. You even enabled us to bring our dog Maya and she loved it! Thanks for the great memories and all those awesome pictures. Really, you are doing a great job! Can't wait to catch up again next year!"

Buddy riding with Robin

"I was riding with João, Renato and David. They showed me the trails in Sintra but it felt more like riding with your bike buddies than a guided tour. WE were chatting the whole time, the trails were more than great and after a while we even decided to shuttle, which was even more fun on the downhills. David didn't hesitate to lend me his glasses since mine were to dark.
After the ride Renato even came back to bring us some chourizo sandwiches and a couple of beers!
Altogether the most pleasant guided tour I ever took, the guys really know their work and especially how to make you feel not like a customer but more like a friend. I am looking forward to riding with them again. My warmest recommendations and thank you very much for this great experience."

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 !"
