WE CALL IT MOUNTAINBIKE FREERIDE ....
Naturally, just as it is ... paths, roads, hiking trails. Here we have very few signposted trails with difficulty markings or large lift systems that easily take you up into the mountains. We still cycle. We use our BIKE shuttle and Van to go up into the mountains as far as possible.
The paths are technical, rocky and steep mixed with flowing forest areas as we approach the valleys. They lead us through the villages where we wind our way down and further on to our destination which often is a coffee at the local bar.
There are plenty of altitude meters, our paths often start at 1800-2000 meters and thus the slopes are long. Focusing and holding all the way down takes on a dimension of its own. The expression "balcony roads" comes true when the path winds around the mountain and the precipice can be breathtaking - you get used to it! .
WE START IN SANTA CATERINA VALFURVA, GO DOWN TO VALTELLINA AND TIRANO, USE BERNINA EXPRESS AND ENJOY LOCAL FOOD ON OUR WAY
BICYCLES & EQUIPMENT!
We often choose to ride E-MTB of the best kind - Specialized Levo and Kenevo or similar. Why E-bikes?
Well, in Valle Brembana there are no well-developed lift systems to use as a biker and our mountains are steep and extremely inaccessible to cars. We choose to ride E-MTB to be able to get up and get where we want and to use the power and energy for several slopes in one day.
Do you want to bring of your own bikes?
Contact us and we will arrange it - of course we use our bike shuttle to give you the best of experiences.
The rental bikes have simpler flat pedals, so bring your own flat pedals with spikes or your pedals with clips if you prefer- we change pedals on your bike. Bring your own helmet, (open / integral helmet), back protection, elbow protection, gloves , shoes and pedals.
