This is an area where no one has ever tried to offer commercial mountain bike camps . So I’ll start with describing my personal impressions . I know both the Western Alps and Slovenia pretty well. I really fell in love with both but when I went to the eastern part of Italy for the first time, looking for new biking opportunities, I almost fainted at the sight of the beauty of the landscape. Steep rugged rocks embedded in a jungle – what a feeling! The valleys are so pristine and blessed with wonderful clear streams, which have cut through the limestone karst rocks for thousands of years. Wow! There is nothing more to say. Searching for new and unforgettable trails was not easy here behind the Dolomites. I was on my own. Information? No chance! Due to their seclusion the trails have a really unique character. They were built perfectly on terrain where you wouldn’t ever think this was possible. A feast for your eyes! You always have to be 100% wide-awake here! The trails are not really technically sophisticated but often very narrow and bristled with obstacles. Therefore, it is quite challenging to keep the bike under control. Total concentration nonstop! At times you need steady nerves and curl your bike on exposed trails between vertical crags. Pure adventure! Maybe, this would have been the right place in Italy to start with slow food – not Piemont. They serve great food in the accommodations here. Some people say, it’s even better than in Piedmont. The houses were renovated with so much passion for detail and are so charming, you’d want to stay for several nights in every single one of them. So, you might all be tempted to come back with your loved ones for that. We will celebrate our “Gran Final” at the famous Monte Grappa. 1,500 metres of downhill trails with a stunning view at the Dolomites on the one side and Venice on the other , if the sky is not dull. Bassano di Grappa invites us to its lovely bars and pubs where we will have one or two glasses of Aperol.
Never Stop exploring! off you go boys and girls! You will experience a region you will never ever forget.
