Let’s clarify a point, our intent is not to create another ready to use list of routes of the type “download the track – load it on the GPS – follow the track”. The web already provides services of this kind that are very good but, in our opinion, have the defect of being excessively redundant and sometimes the search for the route can be a frustrating experience.
Here we will follow an all-mountain approach to the discipline, that is we focus the attention on what we believe is the predominant part of a mountain bike ride: the descent on the single-track. Therefore we will give descriptions as detailed as possible of the trails of our territory that can be ridden in mountain bike. We leave you the fun of combining them to make your ideal excursion.
In the description of the trails you will find a classification of the difficulty according to the single-trail skala (STS). It goes from S0, very easy, up to S6, impossible. As far as possible we will try to classify portions of the path so as to identify the most difficult parts. However, bear in mind that the description can never be 100% accurate because the conditions can suddenly change due to atmospheric agents, the presence of livestock or wild animals and so on.
The trails we will talking about are not for the exclusive use of mountain bikes, in fact they are mostly ancient paths still used by shepherds and their herds. Only recently they are used for recreational purpose by walkers, hunters and mountain-bikers. Therefore be cautious and respectful towards every user, be it human or of other species.
Our association contributes, as far as possible, to the maintenance of this network of paths also through initiatives such as Take Care of Your Trail by IMBA Europe. However, by virtue of the above, guaranteeing its perfect condition at any time of the year requires an effort that is well beyond our means. In these pages we simply describe the existing and as association we will not be responsible for any problems that may arise.
