Meet and greet in Florence, than transfer by bike to Cutigliano, a tiny village on the Apennine mountain chain, about 1 hour. Then we'll bring bikes and backpacks to jump on the cableway that will take us to Doganaccia, the very last village close to the mountain peak. We'll bike up to the mountain top, on a natural trail, it will be pretty challenging, with a sequence of ups and downs on the mountain ridgeline path, to reach the Lago Scaffaiolo, after about 1:30 or 2 hours cycling. The view during the ride will be amazing, your sight will spread out over hundreds miles on each side of the mountain. We'll bike on an unpaved trail, with no cars of course, and even on sigle-track. There are not dangerous spots like cliffs, but just a grassy slopes on both sides, anyway the itinerary requires at least an intermediate fitness level and a good skill level on a mountain bike. A proper bike adventure in the wilderness, for adventurous guests who like to get out of the normal comfort zone, to try something unique, beautiful and inspiring, finally making the comfort zone bigger than prevously was.
Il tuo itinerario
Il tuo host
I'm a bike enthusiast since 20 years, I've never been a pro cyclist even if sometimes I race, but I prefer bike adventures than races. I was born in Florence and lived here all my life so I can give you the tips about how to live it like a local. I mapped and rode the hardest European bikepacking route, the GEA Bike trail, on the top of the Apennine ridgeline. Then created the Inferno bike trail, a loop route on the hills around Florence. I'm a bike guide since 10 years and leaded thousands of guests in my daily tours in Florence and Chianti, ville Medicee, National Parks, Chianti Castles, Leonardo da Vinci birthplace & other tours. I know a lot of gorgeous restaurants, many wineries & nice spots for a stunning wiew. I can lead you in the narrow streets of Florence or the imperviousu trails on the Apennine mountains with knowledge & fun.
