Video: Iago Garay Shreds Dusty Trails in Portugal in Episode 5 of 'Not Far From Home'

For our last trip we decided to go international. Sintra had been on the list for a while and it looked like it was the perfect opportunity to go check it out. We contacted Weridept.pt for some guiding and shuttles and they helped us find the best running trails in the area.

Featured in this video you can see what were our favorite trails of the trip: Colares, Kamikaze, Home and Burros. When you go to Sintra you must ride Home Trail, the never ending turns and berms through the beautiful forest made it one of my all time favorites.

If you decide to go to Sintra, I recommend you stay in the small town of Malveira da Serra, it has quicker access to the trails and is way cheaper for accommodation. It has a couple of nice restaurants and the beach is only 4km away!
For anything related to your trip I recommend you contact the guys at Weridept.pt they have been operating there for years and can sort the whole trip for you!

 @iagogaray: You're welcome. If you ever want to ride "Home" in mint conditions then drop in around November, that's when I return to Portugal and fix it up as well as my other trail "16 Psyche".
If you want to try something else you are welcome to come ride my other 20+ trails in the Portes du Soleil.
