A LESS UPHILL AND MORE TECHNICAL RIDE FOR THOSE RIDERS THAT DON´T DISPENSE THE PLEASURE OF SOME CHALLENGING TRAILS!
This tour starts at Pico do Arieiro, the third highest peak in Madeira and the highest point accessible by car (Alt.1818m). Depending on the riders desire to climb we can also start lower and then climb to Pico do Arieiro. From the highest point it´s a crazy mixture of mountainous rocky trails and many narrow, but flowy trails through the forests. There will be some uphills meters in between to cool down the brakes. We will have a stop in a local bar where we can eat and drink something. After the stop we continue driving down into the rural area where we still have some surprising trails, levadas and some narrow cement trails. On our way we will see the typical Madeira houses. The last part is a fantastic way to get to know a bit more about Madeira´s rural side.
