My 13 y old son and I, enjoy riding together and found this company before we came to Lagos. They set up a halv-day trip for us and some others (who did not show up). Tak about tailor-made guiding ! It was so hot, and a half day was enough. He took us thru exiting landscape and tricky riding. We... More

We did a guided ride with Miguel along the cliff tops of the South coast. The views were amazing, and scenery stunning. The trails were lovely. Quiet and generally single track for the whole distance. Difficulty level of our ride was approx a blue / red but fairly long (5 hours, with stop for coffee and lunch) They do offer... More

Ok. You pick up the bikes from a garage storage within walking distance of all the main spots in town - that's convenient. No Office and no Fuss: One indemnity form and ready to go. The first kilometer is on the road which is good to get you accustomed to the bikes gears and breaks, adjust the saddle etc. etc.... More

This is a brilliant activity. Saw parts of the Algarve you would see ordinarily. Miguel, our guide, was great, telling us about any hazards and allowing for plenty of photo stops. We did the half day ride which was mostly on trails but some road work. Bikes have hydraulic brakes which took some getting use to, and saddle covers provided... More

After searching the internet I found The Mountain Bike Adventure based in Lagos and got in touch with Jim Carroll. Jim sent me all the details of what his company had to offer and I... More

Went up with 2 others. My first time mountain biking other 2 had a fair bit of experience. Was unreal. 35 Kms down Monchique mountain. Wouldn't be the fittest so was wrecked but totally worth it. Unbelievable way to see the countryside. Jim and Miguel were great guides and full of knowledge.

Mike was our tour guide and he was very personal and friendly, which made the experience that much better. We took the slightly more scenic route, which took us through the cliffs and also the back country of Lagos. This bike tour gives you views of the cliffs that you can only see on pictures and I highly recommend anyone... More
