 I have been to Sao Miguel for a surf trip, the terrain looked amazing for mountainbiking, gutted I could not ride a bike there! There are great things to see too if you are travelling with friends or family.

 Always fancied visiting Azires after seeing it on Endless Summer II.

I've been to nearby Madeira a few times - one of my favourite places in the world (that i've been to at least). Yet to ride there though. Was planning to go last year. But, you know...

 Carlos knows the score with putting on a good event. If I can I will return this year for the third time to race bikes and drink beer
