A light guide to the mountain biking and facilities of Punta Ala Trail Center in Tuscany, Italy.
Tuscany’s Maremma region is an often-overlooked paradise for cycling, with fabulous coastal peaks and beautiful forests offering a wide variety of two-wheeled adventures in some of Europe’s most sumptuous surroundings.
Mountain bike trails skirt the unforgettable coastline, its shimmering turquoise water reflecting the area’s dependable sunshine across the golden sands of its undisturbed beaches.
In the bigger hills just inland, memories of the first ever Enduro World Series are scattered around the woodlands in the shape of numerous epic descents and flowing trails.
This book gives a feel of the area’s riding and friendly staff of Punta Ala Trail Center, a private resort that maintains the trails, operates guiding, rentals and shuttles, and caters for all budgets with its range of beachside accommodation.
Dozens of high-quality images by some of mountain biking’s best photographers illustrate the most famous rides in the area, mini features introduce its finer points, and trail descriptions help choose rides.
This is not a guidebook to use for navigation (we recommend using Trailforks or employing a guide), it provides an inspiring overview of the area and serves as a memento for visitors.
