First off; spent a week here. Super professional arrangements from airport transfers to the daily rides. They go out of their way to make sure you dont ride the same trail twice. The trails were more technical, tougher and loooonger than expected! The guides were awesome. Super friendly, helpful and accommodating. Shout out to Fabio! Feel like we’re leaving better riders than when we arrived! This place should be way more recognized on the global downhill-/enduro scene. There is no bike park in the world to match these ”natural” trails! Awesome trails, stunning views and well-kept trails. This will be annual destination for us moving forward. Simply amazing!!!

Just finished another amazing week with Freeride Madeira. Everything about this island is awesome. We rode with Marco as our guide every day. His trail selection and guiding was excellent ???? Until next time, thank you Ivo, Marco and the uplift drivers .

We had two rides booked in with Freeride just before Christmas. The first ride was with my wife and son on electric mountain bikes (including two other riders, Charlie annd Amanda) and our guide for the ride was Milton. He was caring, professional, understood perfectly the needs of each of the riders and took us on some brilliant trails. The second ride we booked was for our 16 year old son on mountain bikes on the west of the island. This ride was a present for our son and he loved every minute of the day. He was covered in mud when he arrived back at the shop and he talked about the ride for the next three days. Marco looked after our son, as well as the other riders (hope Franco is doing okay) and made it an unforgettable experience for all. I highly recommend Freeride as they have trails for all levels.

We had Milton as our guide on an ebike tour and he was fantastic! He did a great job accommodating everyone in the group. He was friendly and welcoming. He always made sure everyone was happy and felt confident. Would highly recommend him!

Wybrałem jeden dzień na e-bike i było super. Milton był przewodnikiem, pokazał piękne trasy na Maderze. Nie za trudno, ale było po czym pojeździć. Na pewno jeszcze skorzystam. Polecam ????
