Wat je gaat doen

Are you ready to roll? So do I! But the CoVid19 pandemic changed a fair bit of our lives. Please read carefully the whole description of this experience, to know what are the safety rules, what you should bring with you!

Our MTB experience starts in Porto, where I pick you up. Please appear in cycling gear, and bring all the necessary accessories for the ride. Our drive to the starting point will take up to 20-30 minutes. When we arrived, I unload the van, mount your pedals (optional, if you bring your own) do the bike fitting, fill the bottles, and we prepare ourselves for the ride. Then we just roll and enjoy the pure beauty of the Serras do Porto mountains from behind (handle)bars :)

The ride takes 4-5 hours, depending on the physical conditions and the technical knowledge of the group. The route is more or less 45 km and 1500 m+ elevation. The terrain in some places is rocky, we'll do single tracks, scenic roads, epic climbs and enjoyable downhill sections. It is sometimes rough, and there are technical parts and steep climbs in the route. Bottom line: Tons of fun!!! You will see rivers, mountains, typical Portuguese villages, great views of the city of Porto from above. We'll do a quick lunch stop as well along the route.

After the ride, we return to the van, relax a bit, we'll have a refreshing drink, and than I bring you back to the meeting point.
Other things to note
This is an advanced mountain bike tour, developed for those, who have passion for this sport. You should be fit, and practice MTB for a longer period before you book this tour. Please bring your face mask and hand sanitizer gel with you. If you don't have, I can provide it to you!

I have started mountain biking when I was 12 years old, and I am riding ever since (23 years now). I was racing during 8 years in MTB OX (Olympic Cross) and I have participated in the World Championship and European Championship in 2003, and several World Cups along the years.

I ride, run and do sports whenever I can. This passion for outdoors eventually led me to change my professional life. I created my own company called Wheel Nuts Cyclotouring and I organize personalized bicycle and walking tours in Portugal, focusing mainly on cycling and mountain biking from beginner to advanced level.

In my free time I explore the Portuguese outdoors. I live here for almost a decade now with my wife and my son, and we consider this awesome country our home now. I would love to share my knowledge and experiences with you!

Waar je naartoe gaat

The ride itself starts in the outskirts of Porto, in a city called Valongo. We'll ride in the Serras do Porto mountain range, which surrounds the city from the North-East until the River Douro. We go to viewpoints, where we can appreciate the view of the magnificent city of Porto, and also the view of the mountains and valleys. We'll visit typical Portuguese villages, and stop for lunch in a authentic little restaurant to eat.

Communication was great from start to finish and although this wasn't one of the scheduled dates Andras managed to fit us in, his knowledge of the History and Culture of the area added to the enjoyment of the ride but make no mistake this is a tough ride full of hard climbs and great descents just what mountain biking is all about, it was wet the on the day and although we had hoped for better weather this would be very energy sapping in the summer heat unless you are used to the higher temperatures, coming from Scotland we are not, so the rain suited us just fine, although it did spoil the views as it was very overcast. Both climbing and descending are technical with lots of loose rocks, gravel / shale and you need a good level of fitness and need to stay focused especially in the wet conditions. The stop for lunch deep in the valley made the ride worthwhile, you need to do it just to experience the recommended sandwiches accompanied with the obligatory Super Bock. Andras is a great host and if we are ever in the area again we would definitely book another guided ride and see some of the other routes. Thanks again for a great day out
