by Marcello Stampacchia, tour started May 2008, submitted 15 December 2008
Europe: Italy
language: it

Viaggio in stile islandese?

Perché la nostra esperienza dei viaggi in Islanda ci ha fatto inventare un nuovo modo di viaggiare in MTB: il viaggio assistito. Tu viaggi leggero con il GPS e noi ti portiamo i bagagli, i viveri e l'occorrente per il viaggio. Con questo spirito abbiamo progettato uno splendido giro di 2 giorni.

In sintesi il viaggio proposto:
partenza dalla nostra sede di Brisighella il venerdì sera, sosta per la cena e la notte a Casa di Ponte nel comune di Tredozio; via per i boschi del fantastico parco delle Foreste Casentinesi; sosta con cena e pernottamento a Fiumicello nel comune di Premilcuore; secondo giorno in quota per toccare il monte Falco e il Falterona, famoso per dare vita all'Arno, e discesa adrenalinica fino alla valle del Sieve per prendere il treno e fare ritorno a Brisighella.

Tutti i particolari li trovate sul sito: www.ibasprengisandur.it

In Search of Singletrack in the Alps
by Per Löwdin, tour started 2000

We flew from Stockholm to Geneva. Then we biked along the southern shore of Lac Leman, crossed Pass des Morgines, headed up the Rhone valley, and made a side trip to Zermatt. Then, we continued to Brigg, Davos, St Moritz, Livigno, Canazei, and Cortina. From Cortina we headed south to Lago di Garda. Reaching the Plains of Po approaching Milan we spontaneously decided to take a train to San Reno, and continue from there to Monaco, Nice and up through the mountains to Chamonix, ultimately heading back to Geneva for our return flight to Sweden. There are plenty of excellent reports on cycling along these roads [...] and we feel we have little to contribute. Instead these pages are focused on the possibilities of single track riding.

Mountain Biking around Lake Como
by Ambro69, tour started April 1999
Europe: Italy

Altopiano di Asiago
by A. M. G. Deganutti, tour started 1998
Europe: Italy

I live in the middle of the largest flat area of Italy [...] every time I want to do a nice ride I have to go by car at least as far as the nearest Prealps mountains. So, having planned a mountain bike trip for a Sunday of late autumn, I left from my flat city that day, even if the weather was not so good. [...] I arrived at my planned bike starting point (Rotzo village, on Altopiano di Asiago, Veneto region) while the sky was releasing a nice amount of rain. [...] I took a downhill road, the speed increased along with the humidity of my clothes; soon my hands (protected by not so good cycling winter gloves) became colder and colder and so my feet. [...] The downhill road is very long and I went down fast enough to lose the sensitiveness of my hands and feet. Even my limbs, after a while, became hard to move! [In the end] my fleece sweater was quite wet and so my polypropylene jersey but my body was still warm! Of course it took a bit of time to recover the complete functionality of my legs and arms, hands and feet but I was helped by a good fireplace and a big hot wine glass!

La Römerweg (Via Romana) in Gsiesertal (Val Casies / Gsies)
by Pierluigi Reschiglian, tour started August 1997
Europe: Italy
language: it

La Val Casies una stupenda valle laterale dell'Alta Pusteria, lontana dal turismo di massa anche nei periodi di punta [...] agli amanti della bicicletta, ed in particolare della MTB, [...] offre opportunità veramente uniche di stupendi itinerari tra il verde delle malghe ed il silenzio dei boschi. Tra questi itinerari abbiamo scelto un classico, la ``Via Romana'', che si presta, per le due varianti che descriveremo in seguito, sia a biker mediamente allenati, che ad esperti amanti del single-track tra radici di abete ``spaccapolsi''.

The Santa Colomba Trail
by Andreas Caranti, tour started April 1997
Europe: Italy

I'm pretty sure that no matter where you live, there is one trail among your home ones that is generally considered as the trail, a classic of the genre.

For Trento, the place where I live, the choice of most local bikers would fall on the Santa Colomba trail. Easily doable starting from the town, not really difficult but with some challenging sections, it offers a small selection of the standard ingredients of an off-road ride. Mind you, it is not a spectacular trail, such as the ones you can find higher up in the Dolomites. But it's an excellent choice for a half-day ride, which means that on Sunday afternoons you have to line up to ride it!

Renon/Ritten, a magnificent plateau in Südtirol
by Andreas Caranti, tour started July 1995
Europe: Italy

I stop to open a gate, a recurring event here, and start the final climb to the top. Some short walls, with rather uneven road-bed, force me to dab now and then, but soon I'm on top, at about 2200m, after a 1000m gain. The view of the Dolomites, unimpeded in all directions, is really magnificent. I skip the pleasure of Südtiroler cuisine at the hut, and begin the descent. It will be a 2000m drop from here to Bolzano/Bozen.

Off-road in the Alps
by Carsten Gregersen, tour started 1995
language: en, dk

From Carsten's Cycling Web, the Web site of Carsten Gregersen. This trip is dedicated off-road cycling. We go by car to the Alps and stay at different campsites and arrange one-day rides without pack. In the peaceful Vanoise national park we are at the home ground of the marmot. The western Susa valley offers some very relentless climbs on old military roads and an unforgettable tour along the Asietta ridge. We end the trip in Grindelwald at the feet of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau - three magnificent, Swiss giants.

Marzola, favourite training ground for Trentonian mountain bikers
by Andreas Caranti, tour started 1995
Europe: Italy

What do you do if you have just two or three hours free for a ride? Well, if you live in Trento, your favourite choice is probably the small range of Marzola, which reaches 1738m (5702ft).

A simple tour around Trento
by Andreas Caranti, tour started November 1994
Europe: Italy

One of my favourite training rides. A fast downhill section becomes steeper and trickier when I meet deep, stone-ridden sand. It's worthwhile to slow down, or stop altogether, to take a look at the simple but really nice landscape around here, that will be missed at speed. Vineyards with the colors of autumn, little streams, small valleys that let you feel you are away from the world. And the town is just over there, behind a rocky hill.

Corno Bianco
by Andreas Caranti, tour started October 1994
Europe: Italy

At 1872m I find ice on the road, no problem though in negotiating it. I then get to the alpine pass Passo degli Oclini/Jochgrimm, at 1989m. It's full of hikers up here, and with good reason. The view on the twin peaks of Corno Bianco [White Horn] and Corno Nero/Schwarzhorn (Black Horn) is great, and looking to the South you think you could touch Latemar and Catinaccio[/Rosengarten].

Serot-Cinquevalli
by Andreas Caranti, tour started September 1994
Europe: Italy

One of my favourite trails, with a great singletrack section. The single track is really beautiful. It goes through a very varied terrain, slightly desolate at the start, then surrounded by sparse trees. A particularly nice spot occurs when crossing a creek near to a ``malga'', a wooden Alpine hut. At a couple of rough spots I prefer to walk for a few meters, so I have a chance for looking at the scenery. On such technical tracks I should really remember to stop every now and then anyway, to avoid the risk of looking only at the trail in front of me in search of the best path, and missing the scenery entirely.
