Not Far From Home Ep. 5
The latest in the Not Far Home Series - Episode 5 has arrived.
For this trip we decided to go international. My good friend Sergio Layos (BMX legend and MTB ripper) kept speaking about the amazing trails in Sintra, Portugal, and at the time of year we wanted to do the trip, Sintra was supposed to have the best conditions.
Thanks to it proximity and culture, Portugal has always felt more like home than any other country, which made It an easy decision. I contacted the good people at weride.pt and in a matter of hours we had the trip ready to go! Joao and his crew run a guiding and shuttle company around the area and are one of the main people that take care of the trails there, they have done so much for the spot and are so passionate about bikes that they are definitely the people to hit up to discover the place.
They showed us the best trails and took us to the ones they had been working on through the winter. “Home” trail had just been rebuilt and let me tell you, that was SO MUCH FUN. One of my new favorite trails in the world. I hope this video inspires you to get out and ride with your friends, go discover a new hidden gem near your home, or now that the travel restrictions are lifting, it can be the perfect time to go riding in Sintra!
