Located at the crossing of dirt roads along the ER 210 is the start of Madeira’s most important race track: Avalanche Raposeira.
Due to the altitude of the starting point the bends on the initial dirt road are always technical. The terrain is generally quite even and the dirt roads alternate with more fluid and enjoyable single tracks.
The only pedalling area is just before the single track with an intermediate double jump. The rest of the course is pure fun with jumps and off-camber corners until the end in the centre of Raposeira do Lugarinho.
Although recommended year round, keep in mind that during the rainy season there are very slippery areas.
