Hi! I am João, co-founder and guide at MountainGadget. It’s great to have you on our website!
I’ve been riding these mountains since I was a young boy, and I’ve been guiding for a few years now. When you come for a ride, I’ll be the one guiding you around our beautiful island. Rest assured, I’ll keep your ride challenging and safe! 😉
We’ve got a bit of everything here, perfect for both off-road beginners and hard enduro riders.
Come with me on a one-of-a-kind adventure in Madeira!
What People Say
This was a fantastic experience and the highlight of my trip. I have good street riding experience but little to none off-road. Joao took the time to coach me as we went along with great patience. I gained new skills and confidence as we advanced, and learned so much in just half a day. The day felt like riding with a friend. It was evident that with Joao’s experience level and the amazing beauty of Madeira, there was great potential for everyone from beginner to advanced riders to have an unforgettable experience.
I really enjoyed the lessons you gave me. Quite unexpected my muscles are itching today. I’ve invited my 2 sons to join me next time I go to Madeira. Till then, take care!
From the first telephone contact Joao couldn’t help enough, every question i asked i got a response within minutes. TOP CLASS HOST.
On the day of my experience i was collected and and dropped off at no extra cost from my chosen destination.
I arrived at Mountain Gadgets HQ greeted with brang new TC300 huskies. All kit was also provided 100% professional fro. Start to finish.
We set off, with joao’s obvious passion and knowledge of his chosen sport i knew i was in safe hands, he completed a quick assessment to gauges my ability and chose a course that pushed me to my limits but also made it an amazing and enjoyable day, we stopped for lunch the food was rather tasty also.
The views from the top of the mountain i dont believe you would see them if you were on foot. Overall it was value for money and without a doubt if i visit again it would be one of the first places i would book into.
La CRF 450 est très puissante et le service de Joao est très bien! J’avais l’impression de rouler avec un ami! Equipement complet sécurisé compris. Bon rapport qualité prix!
Madeira has lots to offer a beautiful place to visit especially if you love motocross and enduro
I searched on air bnb and found Pedros site for off road experience I had an awesome day
I found it a bit hard as I’ve not been on a bike for about 5 years but it’s given me the buzz to get back into enduro I’m looking for a bike now
Pedro was a great and patient instructor making sure I was ok at all times and a great rider with lots of tips and knew the terrain like the back of his hand
I totally enjoyed my experience and would of had another day if I had stayed longer
I would of loved to have rode the motocross track on a mx bike
If you love bikes I Can recommend this as an awesome experience and you will be wanting more
Pedro you’re a star bro
It was my first enduro experience ever. Great adventure you can not miss visiting Madeira. Lovely dirt tracks, trails, levadas, forests and steepy hills – all this is only begining. You can choose half day, full day or even a week trip to discover mysterious of the island. Joao leads you to the edge of your imagination and endurance.
The trails on Madeira are so diverse, from rocky climbs to flowy forest roads. Hands down the most fun I’ve had on a dirtbike.
