With our electric MTBs we will start our spectacular route that will take us to discover mountain landscapes of rare beauty, along the Apennine foothills or the rocky foothills of the Apuan Alps, medieval villages and ancient fortresses. We will move along dirt roads and secondary roads with little traffic, we will cross chestnut forests and on high altitude routes, once we reach 1000 metres, among centuries-old beech woods. Depending on the chosen itinerary we will stop for lunch in typical places, refuges or farms. The return to the facility is scheduled around 4.30 p.m. so you can relax by the pool before dinner served in the facility’s large park. Return to the hotel at around 16.30 so you can relax before dinner.

INCLUDED: Excursion with environmental excursion guide / e-MTB rental

After breakfast we get back in the saddle for a more enjoyable  half-day. Our itinerary today takes us through hilly areas, through local cultivations, to the characteristic village of Castiglione di Garfagnana, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, and along dirt roads through woods and countryside. Our destination will be a local farm where a nice lunch based on typical local products will be waiting for us. Our route will continue through small villages with views that will span from the Apuan Alps to the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. We can choose possible variations depending on how far we want to pedal to reach the point where we cross the valley on one of the highest railway bridges in Europe. It will be exciting to be in such a special and panoramic setting. Then through fields and farms we will reach the small lake of Pontecosi and from there we will shortly return to our cars. We will say goodbye and meet again for another pleasant weekend of fun.

Included: Excursion with environmental excursion guide / e-MTB rental / wine tasting and light lunch

Details

What to bring

For your comfort, we recommend that you wear specific clothing for cycling, but you can also participate using normal sportswear. You must wear a helmet, which will be supplied with the bike. We suggest that you bring a small backpack with a warm, light, long-sleeved garment, sunscreen and a water bottle.

Climate

Along the route we will experience very different micro-climatic situations. Some places are particularly hot and the perceived temperatures can rise to 26/28 degrees. Other places are cooler with very low temperatures, especially in the early hours of the day and at sunset (5/10 degrees). It is also important to remember that the Apennine ridge attracts strong and violent summer storms to its peaks, with thunderstorms and hail accompanied by winds that further lower the perceived and actual temperatures. These can, in the case of strong storms at high altitudes (1600/1800 m) drop to 0 degrees or slightly more during the event.
