BABYLON

Trilho a muito esquecido, usado pelos primeiros Mountain Bikers na Madeira nos seus simples passeios de Fim-de-semana quando se usava uma bike de Supermercado para descer, uma simples bike de XCO ou mesmo as primeiras bikes de Enduro que surgiram no mercado.
Mais tarde os Riders do Downhill por vezes desciam ali de forma a ter uma alternativa diferente daquilo que havia, pois a 20 anos atrás não existia assim tanto trilho por onde andar.

Só a partir de 2013 e agora em 2017 que a FREERiDE MADEiRA teve o trabalho meter mãos à obra e fez uma manutenção de fundo arranjando então o trilho #BABYLON, assim batizado pelos Trail Builders que muitas vezes deixavam este trilho para o fim para a sua manutenção, pois esqueciam-se que havia mais este para trabalhar.

É uma pequena secção de trilho ao meio de urze, muito rápido e divertido de se fazer, trilho fundamental para virar a rota do trilho das Cabras para as 4 estradas ou mesmo para ir descer a crista que se encontra mesmo de frente.
