Cees and Luna Bijl from Eindhoven – 3 times long weekenders – almost part of the family.
Take a break and come and ride with us for 2 days in the Algarve outback on diverse and challenging trails! Once you’ve been once, you’ll be back. Repeat customers guaranteed a different ride every time.
This long weekend trip with 2 riding days can either be a non-round trip, where you stay in the same hotel each night, and start each day from our base, OR a round-trip where we spend 1 night away in a rural hotel.
On Day 1 we will collect you from Faro airport or Loule train station (for those who prefer to fly to Lisbon and take the direct train) and transfer to your hotel where we can give you advice on where to eat and drink at a selection of good value local venues.
On Day 2 we will collect you from your hotel at 9am and take you back to our base 15 mins away. On arrival we’ll help to get you kitted out in full protective gear, introduce the quads and before leaving we will give you an all important safety briefing. At approx 10am we will head out on the trails for a full day of riding where we aim to cover approx 120kms per day. We will stop for short breaks at places of interest en-route, for water and photo opportunities and to check that everything is ok. At approx 1.30pm we’ll stop for lunch at a restaurant in the hills to sample some tasty local food. After a relaxed lunch, we will continue riding for a further 3 hrs before returning to base where we can have a beer and a chat over the day’s ride before dropping you back to your hotel.
Day 3 follows the same format as Day 2.
Possibility to spend Night 3 in a hotel at beach location (for a surcharge) in order to spend your last day either relaxing on the beach or we can organise an activity such as a boat/fishing trip or karting.
