#ABELHAS Trail
Trilho desenvolvido no final do ano de 2015 pela FREERiDE MADEiRA com o objectivo de se criar mais um circuito para o Enduro e desenvolvimento Turístico na Cidade de Machico.

Trilho muito divertido com um inicio em tobogan em Floresta Laurissilva e depois desenrola-se entre zona de Eucalipto e já no seu final ao meio de Acácias. Pequenos drops ao longo de todo o trilho. Na parte final varias pedreiras. Ao chegar á levada, pode ir pela esquerda na levada e apanhar o trilho do Natal.
Este traçado foi todo melhorado para o Enduro World Series onde fez parte em 2017 para a Etapa 4 do circuito, foi totalmente redesenhado e onde todos os anos é feito a sua manutenção por parte dos Trail Builders da FREERiDE.
Este trilhos está batizado pelo nome Abelhas porque no seu inicio de construção um dos principais Trail Builders, Alexandre Gouveia, AKA Cabelaça foi picado por um enxame de abelhas levando 32 picadas.

Trilho super rápido e divertido.

Access Info
