PAC - Pearl of the Atlantic Cycles is a company dedicated to active tourism, which appeared in August 2012 and is the trademark of AJN - Unipessoal, Lda.
PAC was created by two friends André Nunes (manager), a recent MTB Rider and Nuno Quintal (mechanical & guide), with over 15 years of experience.
The main porpuse at the time was to carry riders to the trails of the mountains of Madeira Island.
Two years later in August 2014 we opened our store, as with the bicycle selling variants, components, accessories and specialized workshop, to complement our offer to all riders in our region.
Since we started with our tours and transportation have motivated many new practitioners in the various forms of mountain biking in our region and we have often get contacted by riders from outside the region to guide them in our trails and roads.
After a good feedback from our costumers we decided to further invest in the quality and diversity of our tours, getting our tourist entertainment license and forming as specialized mountain bike guides.
In this short period of time several local athletes have chosen us as support in their careers.
