Once a year we dedicate the trip to GIRLS ONLY, we do as we want and we have so much fun!
You should have a great Mountain bike training and enjoy challenging yourself on trails that are in a Bike park or singletracks with stones, steps and drops. If you like that - you will love the Orobie Alps!
We sleep at charming B&B's, refugees and hotels. We move by bike and shuttle between the best trails the Orobie Alps and the Brembana valley. Here we mix up going with great views overlooking the green fields and the mountain sky line. The downhill has its focus on technical and natural trails. We go all together with our great local guides and plenty of time. To these adventurous days, we add a nice hang out with good food, good drinks and a well-deserved end to our great Termal bath - Spa QC Terme in San Pellegrino Terme.

Balconyroads are a common feature that can give a breathtaking feeling in the stomach. Challenging surfaces such as gravel and stone are common. In the afternoon we arrive tired and pleased to our mountain hut, "Rifugio". We sleep in dormitories, ladies and gentlemen. Time for relaxation, something good to drink and dinner in the evening.

The slopes are steep and challenging but the view is stunningly beautiful. We cycle all the way to lunch and fill up with energy to take us back to Branzi.

PROGRAM CHANGES The
program may change due to external circumstances such as the weather's suitability for the activity
We stay at B&B or familiar hotels. In the mountains we stay at Rifugio or B&B. A simpler accommodation, it includes sheets & towels. The Rifugio and B&B are often run by families who live and work in the area. For the evening's dinner, dishes are prepared with products from the area.
For the best experience on this trip, we use bicycles of the type E-bikes, full suspension by the brand Specialized Levo (or similar). This gives us all the conditions to bike both long and hard without putting too much energy into getting to the top and we have a really good bike for our challenging slopes. In Valle Brembana there are no lift systems to use - we often bike up into the mountains. You bring private equipment such as knee pads, elbow pads, helmet and pedals. Feel free to contact us for questions.
Do not forget to check your insurance so-called "accident insurance" for any damage on the rental bike. These possible damages are paid in full on site at a recommended workshop.
