About Us

We are a small family-run business offering a friendly and personable service.


It was Mark’s enthusiasm for off-road biking that led to successive trips to Portugal to uncover the abundance of remote trails in this unspoiled landscape.  As a result we chose the Algarve to start our adventure and re-locate the family from England to Loule, at the heart of some of the Algarve’s best off-road terrain.


With 8 years of experience we specialise in providing bespoke quad tours from short tours to multi-day tours.


We constantly push the boundaries to discover new routes, more interesting trails, adding complexity, avoiding covering the same trail twice, to ensure that the tours that we offer are diverse, unique and authentic.


We are passionate about what we do and want to share our knowledge and experience with you.


Your lead guide Mark is a qualified Quad Bike Instructor with EASI (European ATV Safety Institute) and can therefore provide professional tuition at all times. He has 20 years experience of professional on-road biking both teaching and dispatch riding in London and Bristol. He is also holds a qualification in first aid (Emergency Aid in the Workplace for Appointed Persons).

Mark’s natural sense of orientation stems from his years of motorbike dispatch riding in London, well before the use of GPS systems.  Many hours and thousands of kilometres of research have resulted in hand-picked trails, without the use of a GPS.  His expertise of trail-finding and in-depth knowledge of the area, allow for personally designed routes chosen to accommodate a wide range of levels of rider.


Clare is the behind the scenes co-ordinator, researcher, administrator and location manager.  Her interest in architecture and interiors contribute to finding those special places to stay, to eat and to visit.  Having lived and worked in several countries she speaks French, Portuguese and Spanish.  She also guides part time on the shorter tours.


Harrison is the back-up guide on shorter tours and is the latest member of the team. He is young, dynamic, and enthusiastic with excellent communication skills making him a valuable asset.


We have several models of Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki & Polaris quads ranging from fully automatic, semi-automatic and fully geared, all chosen for their suitability for our wide range of clients and the varied tours that we offer.  Our quads are maintained on a regular basis by our professional mechanic.


We provide full protective clothing and equipment for our single day tours; boots, knee pads, body armour/jackets, gloves, goggles, helmets.   It is recommended for those of you joining our longer tours to bring your own equipment with you, especially helmet and goggles, to ensure a snug fit.
