100% great!

I made the ride with Rui, a original person from Madeira, I felt all the time in really best hands!

He took care of my safety, was very friendly, funny, polite and patient all the time - because I was not the best mountain climber of the world ( it is something in Madeira!), full of attention, tells you interesting things about the island. The bike was a lovely new carbon. So all in all... I just can recommend Happy Bikes and this experience!

Great experience - would recommend
12/2020 • Pariskunnat
Rented 2 excellent carbon road bikes - really well setup and with all accessories provided. Couple running the shop were super helpful in giving route advice. We rented on Saturday and they stayed open outside advertised hours for us to return the bikes - worth knowing as we almost didn’t use them as we need to return bikes on Sat pm. Only issue is I now want to upgrade my bike at home.

KTM Electric Bike
9/2020 • Soolomatka
Picked up the bike at 10AM when the shop opened,was helped choose my bike by a very pleasant lady ....I presume the owner. I've rented electric bikes before in different locations around the world and without doubt this the best I have ever rented ! Madeira is pretty hilly/mountainess and the KTM took everything in its stride with ease.Bosch electrics and Shimano gearing exude quality.I spent all day on this bike and covered 87klms it had 5 bars of charge at the start of my journey at 10 am and incredibly had 4 bars still left when I returned it at 6pm,fantastic....A great way to explore Madeira

Great bike rental experience.
8/2020 • Kaverit
Rented a carbon road bike and an E-mtb.

Both bikes were very good and ready to roll after Rui gave us a briefing on the bikes and the equipment.

Had much fun riding around Machico.

The service was excellent!

Can't wait to try one of the guided MTB tours next summer!

I'd definitely recommend this company and cycling around Madeira.

Great downhill challenge!
1/2020 • Pariskunnat
We booked rather last minute and wanted a challenge as we have done a few MTB runs before. Therefore, we were happy to be the only couple on the tour with Rui and go down the medium trail from Pico Areiro. The guide was very friendly and helped us find the trail that suited our abilities. He knew his way around! The run we did was not for beginners, it had some tricky technical parts. The bike we got with the tour was a brand new full suspension bike, so 60euros for a good guide and good bike was worth it. Only suggestion would be to give a short introduction at the beginning of the tour on some technical gear/braking strategies and how to run down the bike on a steep rocky slope, even though we had been on a mountainbike before. Thanks again!

A fun and adventurous way to explore Madeira's levadas and mountains!
12/2019
We enjoyed a super fun custom tour with Rui that was perfect for our mountain bike skill (or lack of!) level. Rui picked a perfect route for us through the mountain forests and along a levada with a great stop to enjoy local drinks and snacks (best wood-fired baked bread I've ever had!!) Good quality bikes and excellent guiding. If you want a fun outing with some adventure and a chance to experience Madeira's beautiful views and forests (and don't mind getting a bit muddy) go for a tour with Happy Bikes! Bonus: If you visit the Happy Bikes office, you might meet Elsa, who set up our tour for us and offered great suggestions for enjoying our stay in Funchal. Plus, the fun keeps going... we were sent an album of photos and videos of our tour!

Happy staff, sad bike.

I rented a top range carbon road bike. Shop assistant was very nice and helpful. Bike was less than the premium product that I am used the renting at other resorts. Back wheel was buckled (swapped out on request), brakes needed adjusting, chain ring bolts came loose whilst riding (roadside repair needed). Wrong pedals put on bike, I had to return to get them changed.

Hello Gordon, We are so sorry to hear that the rental was not you expected. As we understand it in the shop, the pedals was you requested. Normally we recommend to our customers to bring the shoes to test the pedals. The satisfaction of our customers is very important to us, we will continue work in order to satisfy the needs of our customers. Best regards, Happy Bikes

Madeiran Hills are Magic!!
5/2018 • Pariskunnat
I hired a road bike to see how I’d do on the hills !! Wow talk about , for me hard work !! The bike was good but I did have issue with the pedals but after stopping at a bike shop called bike zone 2 ish miles up the road they diagnosed the problem and Happy Bikes paid me back for the pedals that fitted my shoes !! The bike was in good condition and had been serviced I think recently , the pedal issue I think was that they are not that used to dealing with cleats ... but good bike and good service and I felt good price .. thank you

Very helpful service
3/2016 • Pariskunnat
Hired e-bikes for a Sunday in Funchal, followed by five days on the other side of the island. Rui very kindly supplied an extra tall seat post for me and then delivered/picked up the bikes to the place we were staying near Santa in the NW of the island. Great way to get to/start off up a couple of the levadas, although not all are suitable for bikes. Also good for exploring quieter back roads. Comfortable bikes, excellent service, as ever. Muito obrigado, Rui!
