Duration:

3h from Cascais

Distance:

22 km

Climb:

250 m

Difficulty:

easy

Around Cascais we find smoove cycling lanes and rough mountainbike trails. This is where I’m home. Since years I live in this great area between the blue Atlantic and the green Serra de Sintra. Since even longer I spend every free minute at Serra de Sintra and found an uncountable number of ways and trails.
Normally this ride starts in Cascais and lasts 3h. We leave the historic town of Cascais at the wind protected interior through luxury mansions and green forests. Once we reach Guincho Beach we can decide if we extend our loop into Serra de Sintra or if we return on the cycling lane along the coast. The coast is breathtaking and the flat cycling lane the best way to enjoy it! Views reach from Cabo da Roca, over Santuario da Peninha to Palacio da Pena in Sintra.

This is a tour we can be 100% personalize. It can be a smoove 2h ride along the coast in Cascais or a 6h mountainbike-action-day from Sintra to Cascais. I can create every ride completely based on your wishes. I’m sure on the uncountable cycling lanes, dirt roads and singletrails around here we find the right route for you!

Three hours are enough to get a real mountainbike escape from the city rush!  Cascais is the end of the urban zone of Lisbon. After only a few minutes we leave the city behind and find ourselfs in the natural and rural zone of Quinta do Pisao and Serra de Sintra. The perfect recreation zone and a real trail paradise with the coast always nearby.

Through traditional villages we reach the protected area of Quinta do Pisao. On dirt roads and a few easy singletrails we cross this area covered by wide fields, pine, olive and eucalyptus forests in the beautiful rural scenery between the natural park of Sintra and the ocean.
