Have you ever wanted to get professional training to enable you to succesfully ride offroad. Here at Algarve Trailriding Tours we specialise in providing training on enduro or trail bikes. Having run training camps and lessons since 2017 we have put together a training package that brings a newby from zero to hero.
This course is suitable for anyone wanting to get confidence and experience in a safe environment.
The course covers such topics as riding position, standing up and riding, steering by counter balance and body weight movement and extends upto crossing downed logs and a full day spent experimenting with different braking techniques.
We offer packages from 1 to 4 days. Really anyone wanting to be offroad can gain an awful lot from this course and so riders of big ADV bikes are welcome to come along as well.
The price is set at 180€ per day per client based on a rider supplying their own bike and equipment. If you don’t have a suitable bike please ask about the bikes we keep in stock. We can then provide you with a package price training deal
So if you’re finally ready to get some enduro training in a safe environment get in touch now.

3 Day Training + 1 Day riding
Start 1000 hrs check in and register. Select the correct fitting sizes of helmet and safety gear and get your backpack for the day with a bottle of water.
Introduction to the bike covering, Safety features, starting procedure general info about the type of dirtbike you are riding. Then we’ll start the training with some basic positions and getting familiar with your enduro bike.
Then we start up the trailbikes and head up into the forest on an easy access route to settle your nerves and help you to start to “feel your bike”.
In the bush we will then start training which will last initially around 2 hours.
After the training, we’ll ride some gentle offroad tracks with a few tricky bits to test your new-found skills and head out for lunch.
After lunch more of easy-flowing tracks with different locations thrown in that have tricky, wet, slippy, uphill or downhill challenges and any other obstacles that may appear when offroading.
The first day is over after around 6 hrs typically.
The second day of training is really about getting out on the Trails and getting some Kms under our belts.
Typically we ride around 50 km. You will be guided how to approach terrain, with instruction on gear selection, body positioning, throttle control etc
Riding in the bush we will be looking for specific areas to put your increasing skill set into practice.
Learning about braking techniques on steep or slippy hills, head and body positioning as well as weight distribution and tying it all in with throttle, clutch, control.
The second day lasts around 7 hours with a break for lunch of 1 hour.
By day 3 we will be exploring more advanced techniques such as brake turns, drift turns, static balancing, fast cornering, spin turns and a few other goodies. Whilst we don’t expect World Champions after only 3 days training it does highlight the notion of what you can start to aim for when Trail riding/Enduro riding.
This really is the most optimal choice. Everything as explained above plus the last day spent riding and enjoying the tracks and trails.
The main focus is on riding your dirtbike but we will stop and discuss ideas and tips as and when necessary. Everything is wrapped up nicely with a proper Trail riding/Enduro ride out.
I am very new to trail bike riding. Is this too advanced for me?
Our day rides can be organised to suit any level of ability and routes are designed to build your skills and confidence. However I truly believe anyone who has never ridden a dirt bike before will be much better suited to a 1 day (or more if requested) Training course we run.
I’m an experienced rider. Do you have day rides of interest to me?
Our expertise in this area means we can find locations for even the most advanced off road trail enduro bike riders. It’s why customers keep coming back for more!
What’s included in Algarve Trailriding adventures?
Your day trip will include a video of the day, water and guide.
We also have two 5* rated Holiday homes to make booking your adventure enduro trailriding tour and holiday with us so much easier.
What happens if your bike breaks down while we are out?
The guide will carry all in field items as required, tool pack, tyre repair items etc. If needed we can call for support from our back up team. We keep a spare bike on a trailer ready if no repair can be done in the field, ensuring minimum disruption to our days enduro trailbike riding adventure.
