Enduro Day Trip: Incl. bike hire, coffee stops and lunch.
We will venture to the summit and back along a huge variety of single track descents up to 10km long. The routes are red/black level which consists of jumps and drops, but there are a few of the smaller jumps that you will have to try! These routes are not suitable for beginners, ideally you need to be able to bunny hop and tackle steep rocky descents. Our aim is to get in 3,000 vertical meters descending per day.
Summit to Sea Day Trip: Incl. bike hire, coffee stops and lunch.
We drive you to the highest point of the Algarve, where we buy you a coffee and enjoy the view before starting the 40km ride to the edge of the ocean. You will descend down the mountain on a mix of old dirt roads and single tracks, at the base of the mountain we stop for lunch before following a river valley down to the ocean’s edge where you will ride along some flowing single track trails. The total distance is 40km with 400m climbing and over 1,000m descending! This ride is ideal for beginners with good off road bike skills looking for more of an adventure.
Dam Descent Day Trip: Incl. bike hire, coffee stops and lunch.
We drive you to Foia, the peak of highest mountain in the Algarve. We stop at the café on the peak, enjoy the view before descending the mountain on dirt roads or tarmac depending on the group requirements. A dirt road leads us to the lake down a long flowing valley. There is a short climb to a view of the lake; where we stop for lunch. Then we follow the edge of the reservoir until it reaches the road. In the summer we go to a beautiful swimming spot on the reservoir, go for a swim and get rid of the dust. Make sure you have something to swim in and a towel, these can be left in the backup vehicle that follows us. This ride is suited to adventurous riders with less experience. The route is about 35km long with 200m climbing.
