3 Days

Three days of pure riding fun along the trails of one of the pearls of the Tyrrhenian Sea: the island of Elba.

A guided weekend full of descents, dates available for both beginners and medium and advanced level riders.

Three days of enduro to better appreciate this pearl of the Mediterranean Sea. In these three days you will be able to discover the beautiful trails of the island, absolutely not to be underestimated. You will be satisfied by the colors and scents of the Mediterranean scrub, the red of the earth, the gray of the granite and the blue of the sea.

Definitely one of the most beautiful tours you can do in Tuscany.

This is a tour designed for those who already ride mountain bikes but are at a beginner level or want to enjoy the island’s trails in tranquility and relaxation. However, a minimum amount of off-road and trail riding experience is required.

The average distance of the bike tours will be approximately 35km and 800 meters of elevation gain every day. A good physical condition and some training is therefore required for these distances.
