Trans Madeira 2018: a new mountain bike adventure

Since May 2017, Madeira reached the industry top spot, when Freeride Madeira and Clube Caniço Riders organized the Enduro World Series round three, where more than 370 racers visited the island to race in what some considered the World’s most diverse terrain. Greg Callaghan and Cecile Ravanel got to the top of the podium that weekend but Madeira was the real winner. Enduro World Series helped Madeira to stand its position as one of the best mountain biking destinations in the World!

A couple months later, we’re back to our origins as mountain bikers, looking for old paths that connect the island west to east and south to north. Exploring the four corners, starting high in the mountains and finishing each and every single day down the ocean – that’s basically what we’ve been doing for years as locals and also with our bike holidays customers. Sharing the ride in such unique and different locations, covering the much ground possible via singletracks and experiencing the best things Madeira has to offer: that doesn’t sound bad at all. That’s when everything made perfect sense and that’s when the Trans Madeira project become a reality.

Trans Madeira is an enduro mountain bike adventure that will get the best out of you, scheduled from 5th to 9th of June 2018. Five days of racing, more than 200km covered, more than 25 special stages, 100 riders. East to west, north to south, all four corners of Madeira in one unique event - by the way, that’s why our logo has four different kinds of mountains. You can expect to ride different kinds of terrains and explore unique singletracks in a bike camp adventure style race with no transition times but with cut-off times.
