Enduro day trip

€100 euros including bike hire

For the Enduro shuttles we meet at our base in Lagos at 09.30 and we are back around 17.00. On our way to the summit in the morning we stop half way up the mountain at our favourite village where we buy you a coffee to start your day. We then head to the peak of the mountain where we have spent countless hours building a huge variety of single track descents up 10km long. The routes we usually use for the shuttle days are red/black level with jumps and drops in them, we try to build lines around them but there are a few of the smaller jumps that you will have to try! These routes are not for beginners, you need to be confident on a bike and ideally be able bunny hop and tackle steep rocky descents. We take a maximum of 6 people per guide and vehicle to make sure you get the most from your day, we aim to get in 3,000 vertical meters descending per day. We do have a minimum of two people to run these uplifts, please contact us with your available dates if you are on your own so we match you with our other bookings.

You will be driven to the highest point of the Algarve in our 4x4 backup vehicle, where we buy you a coffee and enjoy the spectacular views before starting our 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 there is a break for lunch before following a river valley down to the ocean where you will ride along some stunning, flowing single track trail to take us right to the ocean's edge. The total distance is around 40km with 400m climbing and over 1,000m descending! This ride is ideal for good riders looking for an easier day, or a beginner with good off road bike skills looking for more of an adventure. Our 4x4 backup vehicle is with us all day.

Skills training

We run these in-between October to the end of May. The maximum group size is three people, we keep the groups small so you get personal attention which is important for skills sessions.

Let us know what it is you want to learn and we then plan a session for you based on the skill you want to learn/improve.
