Cycling in MadeiraBike excursions / bike hire

There is only one place on Madeira where one can hire bikes, and this is run by a native German, a former professional cyclist, who has lived on Madeira for several decades. He has high quality mountain and racing bikes, and you can either book a guided bike trip through Madeira's spectacular landscapes or just rent a bike and choose your own route. Madeira is a very mountainous island, so a good condition is required. Experience with cycling in mountains is not necessary, although useful. Exploring Madeira by bike is a wonderful way of experiencing the beauty of the island. If you are interested, just let us know!
