Perfekte Trails, super Bikes und toller Guide und entspannte Truppe! Sehr professionell und gut organisiert. Ein voller Enduro Tag, bestimmt 4 oder 5 Shuttles, dazwischen immer super Trails, gut gepflegt. Um ca. 9:15 Uhr saßen wir im Shuttle zum erster Abfahrt, um kurz nach 17 Uhr waren wir zurück am Shop. Nur Madeira-typische Aussichten gab es aufgrund des Wetters nicht, dafür könnte man sich voll auf biken konzentrieren.

Me and my son (12) had a great day! We were riding with John and a group of 12 (adults) with different levels of skills but that didn't influence the day. We did multiple trails which were different eveytime. Beautiful trails! I got to push my own skills just far enough to gain experience but not crash: so the trails were perfect for me! Unfortunately, my son did fall in the last 50 meters of the day, tumbling down on "Hole in one" into a bramble bush. Very thorny but it cushioned his fall. He was/is doing perfectly fine. Besides this 'minor' accident, I recommend a good day of biking with Freeride Madeira! You will love it.

Ich hatte einen Tag Zeit um auf Madeira Biken zu gehen - Freeride Madeira ist ohne Frage der bekannteste Anbieter und wurde auch empfohlen. Es gibt mit Sicherheit tolle Trails und die Insel ist eine (Bike-) Reise wert. Aber nun zu meinem Erlebnis: die Bikes waren zwar gut geserviced, aber zum teil echt schon ziemlich fertig. Das „full day“ shuttle ist genau 1x hoch gefahren, danach haben wir tatsächlich ein paar schöne trails gehabt, aber warum wir auf der nassen statt der trockenen Seite (westen/südwesten) der Insel gefahren sind, habe ich auch nicht verstanden und es wurde auch viel einfach nur dahin pedaliert. Um 13:30 hieß es, naja wir essen noch was und dann putzt ihr die Bikes und das wars, wir schaffen keinen Trail mehr….Der Guide wirkte nett, aber auch ein wenig lustlos. Alles in allem einfach sehr wenig Biken für das Geld….der Anbieter war wohl mehr mit der Trans Madeira beschäftigt, die morgen startet - schade für die heutigen Kunden!

Freeride provides epic mountain bike experiences on an island built for great Enduro riding. Fabio was our guide all week and curated a series of trails that nailed it. His van music playlist did too. He's a seriously great rider and the guide you want in Madeira. Thanks Fabio and our driver Marco for some great memories.

Had an absolutely blast for 4 days of riding. I will be back. One star off because of mayor mechanicals on a worn out rental bike, and half a star back, for the guide to lent me he's personal bike, half a star off, for not accepting Credit card.( Come on, its 2024 ). Things i would work on if the company was in my hands: - Education of all staff, in interacting with costumers, in a Including, positive and welcoming way... - Introducing the customer to the Rental Bike, before leaving, and making sure it fits, and is in working order... - Informing the customer during the day, on what to expect, technical and timevise...Som days suddently ended at 15 o´clock, and others at 17. good job, see You!
