"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!"
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)"
