Day Rides

Sintra National Park is a paradise for mountain bikers
Our favorite playground is Sintra's mountain range, just outside the capital, Lisbon.
In Sintra’s Natural Park you can find all kinds of trails, from technical single tracks to wide open dirt roads. The more adventurous will be happy to explore some of the stunts build by the local riders!
One of our favorite trails takes you all the way from Peninha’s chapel, one of the highest points in Sintra, to Guincho beach. It´s the perfect summer ride: you blast downhill for more than 30 minutes and end with a swim in the ocean!
