MAKE SURE YOU LIKE A GOOD STEEP UPHILL CHALLENGE, BUT ALSO SOME BEAUTIFUL FLAT 'LEVADAS' AND DOWNHILL TRAILS ARE INCLUDED!
Terreiro da Luta (Alt.850m) will be our starting point on this tour. From here it is a challenging steep climb with a great view over Funchal until we reach the highest point on this tour at Pico do Arieiro (Alt.1818m). After this top we will go decent down some single trails to Poiso (Alt.1400m), where we can have a stop for a Café Chinesa. Then we ride down some single trails around 10km until the levada (water channel) while we continue to enjoy the different views and vegetation that surrounds us. From here it is 20km relaxed along the levada where we will be surrounded by a beautiful mixture of laurel, eucalyptus and pine trees. Close to the village Camacha we stop for a light lunch and a cold drink in a very typical bar. After the barstop, we continue our levada that crosses through the colorful village of Camacha, before we start our final ride with more or less 10km of smooth road all the way down back to Lokoloko shop, always with a big view over the ocean.
