A few months ago we went out to the island of Madeira, off the coast of Portugal, to meet up with the guys behind Freeride Madeira with a view to get a closer look at who they are and what they do. An increasingly popular destination for riders and pros alike, Madeira's terrain is prime for exploring and shredding, but behind every great ride on the island, are the guides who's job it is to show you where the good stuff is while maximising your time on this two-wheeled paradise. Freeride Madeira's guides are all top riders in their own right as well as great guides and hosts for the variety of visitors who travel far and wide to experience Madeira's awesome trail network.
