Incredible trails and people

“I heard about WERIDE from a Pinkbike article and boy did it live up to the hype. I rode in Sintra with guide José and just one other person for the full day. Prior to the ride, they communicated with me thoroughly on my skill level, fitness, timing for the day, and what trails I liked to ride. After answering all of those questions and then getting to ride with them, it was like the tailored the group ride to my exact skill level. I rented a Transition Patrol from WERIDE and it was a solid bike as far as rentals go. We did most of our climbing on dirt roads and then descended an epic diversity of trails, to deep green forests with loamy dirt to fast rocky sections with an ocean view. Both the guide, the other customer and I were about the same skill level, which helped make it feel like just a couple guys going out for a ride. José is incredibly friendly and is fantastic to talk to about all things bikes and Portugal. If you do the full day, know that Sintra has some springs you can get water at but you should bring some snacks. My day in Sintra was one of my favorite days of riding of my life, and would recommend to any biker visiting Lisbon.”

“I spent the weekend riding with Duarte and José from WERIDE. Both were excellent guides who took great care of us and showed us the best riding that the area has to offer. Lots of respect for building and maintaining such a multitude of trails. On a side note, a lot of guiding companies find it difficult to accommodate solo travellers, but this was not a problem for WERIDE. Overall, very highly recommended!”

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!”

Superb day riding in Sintra

I had a superb day riding! Great trails and a top guide with João. Highly recommended and the Banshee Rune hire bike was spot on! I was impressed. Will be back! Happy trails!

"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!"

Pure Enduro in Algarve!

"I spent some time with Luis Pedro from WERIDE in Algarve this July and the tracks are amazing, as well as the tips and organization for the 3 rides WE did.

It was pure Enduro but possible to do with one AllMountain - I was riding a 26" Trek Remedy - and that helped a LOT the climbing at around 30 degrees CENTIGRADES!!!

That is something that gave me some thoughts when I flew back to Austria. If WERIDE had one driver shuttling us and Luis Pedro as a guide , the fun would have been tenfold due to the amount of descents increasing that much.
If you are planning to train for Enduro races, do it without shuttle and you will get the condition sweating in the burning Sun of Algarve ;-)
Side effect is that you get quite tanned, lol
I will be back for sure , but if I do it in the heat of the Summer I will be bringing a e-Enduro lol. Cheers!"

Beautiful Sintra, Down Hill Trails, Lunch and the Ocean

"Bom Dia!
Do your self a favor and book some riding with WERIDE. Great service, Great Trails, Great Value!!!

While planning a trip to Lisbon I looked into riding adventures in the area, did some research and WERIDE kept rising to the top. I planed to take my riding gear, shoes, riding shorts & jersey. I arrived in Lisbon, contacted WERIDE via the internet, with short notice for a trail ride in a beautiful mountain park called Sintra. They promptly responded and approved my request for a Friday morning ride. I completed the simple registration form. I rented a helmet and a bike (their equipment is in perfect condition). 

WERIDE has an Adventure package for all skill levels, I'm an avid off road rider here in Florida USA but not use to long up hill climbs. My guide challenged me as well as understood when I needed to walk the bike up some hills. While walking WE spoke like long time friends and I learned about Portugal, it's beautiful and rich in history."

"My package lasted the FULL day of riding, with mountain top views like you've never experienced before, WE stopped for lunch in a small secluded town on the mountain (truly only locals) YUM!

After lunch WE started down the mountain to our final destination of the day, the Atlantic Ocean and a few well earned ICE COLD BEERS :)

It was truly my pleasure to spend the day with João & Miguel. Their passion for riding and promoting the natural beauty of Portugal made my trip, A Trip of a Life Time!
Thank you! (Obrigado)"

Challenging and relaxed day in Sintra

"WE booked a FULL day ride in Sintra and had a great day. WE enjoyed the trails, especially the Bridge trail. João told a lot of interesting things about the region. The lunch was tasty and the afternoon ended at the beach. Perfect! Thank you guys for the both challenging and relaxed day and great company. Cheers!"

Beautifulness in Sintra

"I was just googling MTB biking in the Lisbon area and the Lodge (in Sintra) came up. As I was going to stay in Lisbon, they told me to contact their partner, WERIDE, directly. I got an answer by email within 24h and I barley had to do anything except just letting them know the basic information.
I was surprised over the excellent service and professionalism these guys have! They are soo service minded and can customize your trip to do whatever you want. Also, they were great guides in telling stories and giving you historical information on the surroundings.
Perfect for a group of friends with same passion for MTB biking to go on the tours with WERIDE. Not to forget, the trails were all awesome! I am super happy with my vacation and hope to come back soon with a group of friends!"
