“Amazing trails,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

great bikes, rad company & lots of fun - that's what you will get. I have rarely had such trouble keeping an eye on the trail, that's how beautiful the scenery is. The terrain is a mix of dry, technical, rocky sections on one hand and fast, flowy ones on the other.
I only went for a ride on the last day, but next time I'm around I'll definitely go for a few more. Thanks Jim!

“Great Trails, Nice Laidback approach. Thoroughly Reccomend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

As Below We contacted Jim with around 36 hours notice of wanting to come on a riding trip to Lagos. His quick replies and helpful advice made what was a great trip possible in the first place.
Jim sorted us out with Nice accomodation in the town and came to visit us on our first night to welcome us and sent us off into town with some nice reccomendations.

Jim builds his own trails in Portugal and has a lot of experience doing it, the trails he has built are great fun for both experienced riders and beginners to mountain biking. Even though we were experienced riders Jim always made sure we knew what was coming up and really put you at ease on the Bike. We were really smashing the runs in by the end of the day.

As below, the hire bikes worked great and were perfectly suited to all the riding we did there. If you are only going for a short trip I would reccomend hiring bikes and saving the stress of travelling with your own.

Jim is a great guy and rider who clearly loves mountain biking and has put a lot into it over the years. I would certainly go back and would not hesitate to recommend his service to others.

Get out there.

“Great guided mountain biking with good variety of trails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

We booked our trip super last minute and Jim was fast to respond making our trip possible. It's a prefect place for a mid winter mountain biking trip. Trails ranged from highly technical to mellow single track and Jim was always good to stop and talk through the more technical features as they came along.
Uplift service and repeating of the downhill trails meant our confidence increased with every run.
Only wish we had more time to ride more trails.
Great hire bikes too, they make for tough allrounders and Jim fixed any minor problem that we came across.
