MTB Guide: Punta Ala
£10

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.

82 pages – Ride ideas – Facilities overview – Magazine-style mini features – Photo galleries – Useful information – Printed in the UK – Published by Misspent Summers

Books: Our books are stored and posted from the UK.

Fees and duties on non-UK deliveries: If you are ordering outside the UK, please be aware you may have to pay tax, duties or other fees on delivery. We use a professional fulfilment company to help ensure smooth postage and prepare any necessary paperwork, but since Brexit on 1 Jan 2021, some EU and even rest of world customers have reported having to pay a (seemingly random) fee on delivery. This has never happened before and should not be happening, but for the time being there doesn’t seem to be a solution to the problem. Sorry for any confusion or complications during this period of unprecedented change – we hope Britain and the countries it exports to will soon smooth out any issues.
