About us

365 days of adventure. One lifetime experience.

The Freeride Madeira project started in 2011 by three friends that since 2003 have been strongly active in the local Mountain Bike scene. It was especially after travelling to Europe´s Mountain Bike Mecca - Port du Soleil - that we realized the huge potential Madeira had to become a unique Mountain Bike destination. Our passion for the sport and for the Island, combined with our skills and knowledge about guiding, trail building, organizing events and marketing, encouraged us to create the first Bike Holidays company in the World´s leading Island destination: Madeira.

Since then, our mission has been to develop a sustainable trail network around the whole Island where we’re able to share with our guests the most spectacular, remote and diverse locations, riding over 30km a day of different single tracks during a five day dream bike holiday. The organization of events and film productions also played an important role in our company by implementing the culture of this sport in our region, sensitize our government and promote our destination, carving Madeira as a World Class Mountain Bike destination.

After all these years we’re fortuned to have already worked with some of the most influential and charismatic people from the biking industry within projects of great success and guided many riders from all over the World where their feedback for our service and Madeira has been overwhelming! We can’t wait to show you what makes Madeira so special for Mountain Biking. Join us on your next ride!
