The Island of Madeira is somewhat under people's radar in Europe. It's got some of the best riding any of us have ever ridden and everything else is pretty amazing too. We went down to visit the guys at Freeride Madeira at the very start of 2014 to see what the place was like, explore some place new and get some much needed winter sun. Watch the video, and keep your eyes open for articles coming to a Few UK print mags.

 Unless it's the real Jurassic Park. In which case, get ready to run. Or ride. Does not matter your going to be eaten.
