    hi Surfas,
    I liked your photo it Gêres, really is one of the best mountain to ride of MTB.

    Want to travel across Portugal. Need you advice on rout

    Best wishes to all of you guys!

    I'm planning to visit Portugal to travel by bicycle. Bicycle riding is my favorit way to discover the world.
    I am going to avoid crowded "touristic" places At the moment I am in process of planning the rout. You advice on what it would be is needed.
    I'd like to be in Portugal in May for two or three weeks.
    I live in ... Siberia, shortly I bet you know about Siberia not more than I about Portugal

    hello amaxim

    1.Portugal is one of the best countries in Europe for mtb because we have a good time all year for cycling.
    2.You have several mountains from north to south for cycling.

    As if you can help? when you are near the date you see contact me to show you some places you can do mtbike.

    I will give some good areas to search. Serra de Sines, Serra do Geres, Monsanto (lisbon), Serra da Estrela, Serra de Sintra.

    you can always see my blog www.omeuadmiravelcantinho.com

    see you soon

    When a region occopies more than 10% of all land available on earth people should at least search..... and with Internet it`s easy!

    I think it may be one of the wildest and also dangerous (in terms of survival in the wild) places to MTBinking.

    Also with X-files... LOL!


    Regarding Portugal, look for tracks (GPS) ------> google
    Lousã(nearest city Coimbra) and Sintra (nearest city Lisbon) - one of my favourits

    In Siberia cycling season is from May to October. All the season the most terrific animal is moscito. Places just two hundred kilometres to north from my city Novosibirsk are almost absolutely impassable in summer due to bogs. In winter due to snow

    From October to May it all covered with snow (a lot of snow! )
    In winter my faivorit is snow-kiting.

    Maybe start from Porto. Then Viseu-Guarda-Covihã-Fundão-Portalegre-Evora. Then to the south-west coast. Then east-ward to Spain.
    Maybe I must change my mind? What do you think?

    I want to present to you guys some of my travels. There are some photos, but comments are in Russian. I hope the photos will tell quite enough

    Guys, Happy new year, I am attending to go for my first MTB trip to Lisbon in February of this year. We attend to head for the "Serra de Sintra" (Sintra mountains). Just wondering if you have any soft copies of trails or maps, or if you could recommend where the best point is to start. Directions from Sintra town would be great, and we could figure it out from there.

    Any Help would be great.

    Cheers

    Hi Jrmoore.

    Don`t know when you may be here, but depending on your bike, we can have you on our ridding group:

    XCinish - Kona & Marin early 90s rigid bikes (Kula/Eldridge Grade/Team Ti)
    Enduro - Full suspension bikes - 150mm travel

    contact via e-mail: tkulman@gmail.com

    Normally, people go to Capuchos (From Barragem da Mula/Lagoa Azul/others), and from there go to the South/Southwest part (Monge/Peninha/Malveira). Or go to Colares/Praia Grande (North/Nortwest).
    I think you may find GPS routes on the internet!S

    Sintra Biking

    Thanks Miguel, at the moment, we are intending to go at the end of February. Are there actually marked coloured code trails in Sintra ? Like Red, Black etc. Or are they fire break trails and mountain tracks ?. Just trying to get a feel of what type of mountain biking we can expect. I have biked in Scotland, Marine MTs California and Ireland, all have coloured coded trails, for easy, intermediate and advanced.

    Cheers

    Jrmoore

    Here in Portugal there aren't anything like that in UK and USA.

    Only the Lousã has the first trail park.
    Here there aren't any type of trail maintenance!!! Some trails are becoming a problem with the upcoming riders for the past years like in Monsanto, a little mountain with a lot trickle technical trails near Lisbon.
    Is a area that need some trail maintenance, and in some places in Monsanto is becoming urgent!!! And Sintra too, with some dowhnill and freeride trails is a place that are becoming hot with the prohibition of freeride in the area.

    At Sintra you go to Lagoa Azul or Barragem do Rio da Mula and you can see a lot of bikers, talk to them and try with them some trails.
