These are the places where I had fun in the last years. Ping me if you need advice and recommendations.

Winchester and the New Forest

The main local discipline is gravel and cross-country. A few technical jems but very hidden and short. 

Recommended Locations: West Wood near Farley Mount, Lordswood and The New Forest.

UK National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty

I fell in love with Mountain Biking in Wales. Since then I started wondering and discovering all the amazing mountain biking places in the UK.
Some of the places I like to mention as I know them better or because I fell in love with them are Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons, Surrey Hills, Galloway Forest, Lake District, Yorkshire Dales. Each of these places has several forests and purpose-built trail parks. I tend to avoid the trail parks as I avoid ski slopes in winter. I don’t feel the adventure component in them. It’s like sport climbing and mountaineering. However, you can improve your technical skillset in a park to be a better all-around mountain biker.

Apennines and San Giovese

That’s the place where I like to recover and relax while training hard. Mountain Biking and Tastings between Tuscany, Emilia Romagna and Marche. Natural Reserves and National Parks overlooking the Adriatic sea and in the internal Apennines Mountains. Some of the most promising Sangiovese wine producers.

Level: All Levels. Disciplines: Cross Country, Enduro, All Mountain and Downhill.

Dolomites and Prosecco Fab Rides

Outstanding mountain bike trails in the Dolomites. Post ride wine tastings and visits to the best Prosecco Superiore producers in Valdobbiadene and Cartizze. Small producers winning regularly awards at International and local level.

Level: Intermediate to Advanced. Disciplines: Cross Country, Enduro, All Mountain and Downhill.

Lake Como and Valtellina Nebbiolo Rides

Discover Lake Como Trails, the mountains, the villages and the outstanding Nebbiolo that is consistently winning the best awards in the latest red wines competitions.

Level: Intermediate to Advanced. Disciplines: Cross Country, Enduro, All Mountain and Downhill.

Fab Wines Rides – Vineyards and Winetastings

Based on last year success we are creating these cycling holidays aimed to fabulous social experience together in collaboration with Fab Wines. Mountain biking and wine tastings exploring new local areas.

Here what to bring in every ride.

I aim to create riding groups with similar capabilities/“taste” to grant more flow and fun to the participating riders. However I can’t grant it will always be the case.

PLEASE You MUST have a mountain bike in FULL WORKING ORDER to avoid compromising the ride of the group. Here few recommendations on what to bring during our rides.
