We have a range of cross-country rides to suit both novices and experts. To take part in an all day ride you will need to be reasonably fit as mountain biking can be physically demanding at times.

 Some of our most popular rides are:

 Lagos Loop – A versatile ride between 30km – 45km either a shorter ride on mainly dirt roads with some steep climbs taking in cliffs around Lagos or the above with lots more technical singletrack thrown in!

Wild West Coast – A 35km ride around the west coast natural park, mainly on dirt roads, descending the cliff down to the beaches and climbing back out to ride around the wind farm on the top.

South Coast – An amazing 40km ride following the cliff tops on the stunning south coast towards Sagres. Lots of double track climbs and insane singletrack all the way, ends at a beach café where we are picked up by the backup vehicle.

Canal Loop – a 45km ride heading out from Lagos and heading out through Algarvian farmland, lots of singletrack following irrigation canals and technical singletrack out in the countryside.

Location

Directions:

If you are flying into Portugal you need to get flights to Faro airport. We can either pick you up from there or you can travel to Lagos yourself. There are good bus and train services to Lagos from most of Portugal. When you arrive in Lagos we will come and meet you and take you to the accommodation. Lagos is a beautiful old town with narrow winding cobbled streets but it can be very hard to find your way around the one way system.
