There are flights from Bristol by easyjet to Madeira only Monday and Thursdays and Thursdays are significantly cheaper. I was thinking to go the last week of April or first of May. I am not available for the second half of May.
I have been in touch with the mtb guide companies:
- The Freeride Madeira (my favorite) is very busy. They are available from  4 to 9 of May (Flights: 2nd to 9th of May) only can ride 4 days. The price is 75 per day each. 4 day rides  = 300

- www.madeiramtb.com They are available and the prices are for 5 riding days: is 325 per person.
At least they are available all days but they don't look as good as Freeride Madeira.

We can rent a house for 60 to 80 per day (420 to 560 divided by 3 people is 140 to 190 total)

Anything before middle ish of May is going to be a problem for me  :-[

Hark at me, saying that like I've already asked the missus and she's said, Yes, you should go. Oh and make sure you have all the kit you might need before you go. Hope you have an amazing time!!  ::) :-[  :-X

May might be difficult for me as I have a few things going on that month, but let us know about dates and I'll try to get time off. I do really want to go to Madeira.

The super bike prevented me from crashing and dying many times so it did its job well.

Haha, sounds interesting.  Shame didn't make it, ended up being convinced to family type stuff.

We ended up staying close to home on Sat and hit masts and the surrounding stuff anyways though.  Tracks were running sweet!

How was the super bike?

Went out last night and had a great time, which meant I woke up with a storming hangover. The ride today was... interesting. 😎

At least I didn't chunder everywhere in Andre's car.

I have been in touch with freeride Madeira and they are fully book for the last week of April.
I inquired for the beginning of May. Wanting for answer.
There are flights from Bristol to Madeira on Thursday and Monday by easyjet. Thursdays are significantly cheaper.
