Been on holiday to Madeira and took the opportunity to hit the local trails mountain biking with a guided group. Joined this company on my first day and enjoyed it so much, decided to come back for a second day. 150 Euros covers the hired bike, uplifts and a guide within the group and we rode some of the BEST trails I've ever ridden. The bike was a Cannondale full suspension with some really good specs and was set up in advance for my height and weight. Really really great couple of days. Big thanks to Fabio and Flavio too!

Hire bike was ok but brakes squealed all the way round. Said they had a batch of duff pads, but at least they worked. Other bikes in the group were fine, so give them the benefit on that. Trip was fantastic though, guide and pick up driver were great and looked after our group, the last descent from one of the highest points into Funchal was brilliant. If you're doing more than 1 day then I'd say take your own bike as it works out cheaper and book the guiding. Just 1 day then the cost of hire bike and trip is about the same as cost of taking your bike on the plane etc. Make sure you book the right level trip as well, so level 3 is roughly single black diamond in uk. 4 double black and 5 suicidal 😂, Would definitely use freeride again though.

Superb. Just had a great few days with John guiding and Vitor on the uplifts. Trails were so good. It’s obvious FM put a huge amount of work into opening new tracks and advocating for mountain biking on this beautiful island. Transfers & Accommodation were great, we were able to ride the full last day and get showered before our flight. 100% recommend.
I don't recommend it, I signed up for an advanced level Enduro trip. Due to the seller's mistake, they tried to put me in the beginner group. If you want to take a trip, make sure the seller definitely sign you...
Great company. Very friendly staff. The riding is excellent.

Bremsen runter, Griffe abgenutzt und Dämpfer nicht auf Gewicht eingestellt. Strecken super, Guide auch aber Service leider nicht wie erwartet.
