basket rides

edited December 1969 in Activities
I understand that people rode baskets down the cobbled hills of Funchal. Is this still done? How can one arrange to do it?


  • Thanks. That's exactly what I was looking for.

  • Just remember that there have been some accidents as you go through roads that aren't closed to cars...
  • Where did Hemingway say this was one of most exhilarating rides of his life? Guidebooks and people in Madeira all say this, but I need proof for a travel story I'm writing, and Hemingway bios don't include that he even went to Madeira.

    Does anyone know?? Thanks!
