Tour Program 7 DAYS – 6 NIGHTS

1st Day

In San Remo, dinner and overnight stay.

2nd Day. Nature Park of San Romolo

For the first day on your beloved mountain bike saddle, we have planned a quite challenging route, with the most beautiful single- tracks of the Nature Park of San Romolo – Monte Bignone (1300 m), where the ride is accompanied by truly breathtaking views.

Departure from San Remo heading for San Romolo, where you’ll climb up Mount Carparo, and then after passing the hills on the Monte Nero side you’ll coast from Ospedaletti back to SanRemo.

This route is of medium-high difficulty, approximately 40 km. long, and reaches a maximum height of 1259 m above sea level.

Return to the hotel, dinner and overnight stay.

3rd Day.

A highly scenic route near the city of San Remo.

This itinerary has one of the most challenging climbs in the area, the mythical “Croce della Parà-Bignone” fire barrier, followed by a very technical single-track. It rises first through shortcuts and consortium cemented roads, to reach the fire barrier track that leads to Monte Bignone (1300 m).

A single-track descent follows immediately through steps of stone slabs and rocks: for lovers of technical trails, this will be a real thrill. After completing the two paths, mule tracks lead to an asphalt road in the Baragalla area, and then on with the return to the hotel.

Path of high technical difficulty, medium endurance, maximum height 650 meters above sea level.

Return to hotel, dinner and overnight stay.

4th Day. Rest.

Day of rest off the bike, so we suggest visiting the famous Principality of Monaco. Before entering the city, we recommend a visit to the exotic gardens of Monte Carlo, rich in over 6,000 varieties of plants and cacti from around the world, which offers an unparalleled view of the coast.

Once near the port, you will have access to the fortress, the Old Town, where you can see the famous Oceanographic Museum and watch the traditional changing of the guard in front of the Palace of the Prince. This can be visited from May to October. Among artisan workshops and little stores, you can also dine in delightful bistros.

In the afternoon, you just have to stop at the elegant Place du Casino, with the possibility of chancing your luck at the green tables and slot machines.

Back to the hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

5th Day. The heights of Ospedaletti.

Back to the saddle, and ready to depart from the center of San Remo heading for the hamlet of San Romolo via paved roads and mule tracks. From here a beautiful single-track unfolds in the woods, all uphill until you reach the maximum height of 905 m of Mount Carparo, located near the city of San Remo and Ospedaletti.

Once at the top, be ready for the descent , which, all on a technical single-track, leads to the slopes surrounding the town of Ospedaletti. Through typical Ligurian stairways and mule tracks, you ride downhill until you take the Aurelia Way, then continue towards Sanremo.

Route of average technical difficulty, maximum height reached 900 meters above sea level, and a distance of about 35 km.

Return to hotel, dinner and overnight stay.

6th Day.

Today an interesting route, very scenic and worthwhile, which covers in part the old Down Hill of Bignone – San Romolo and two very beautiful and technical trails: “Scogli Rossi-Borello” and “Corbezzoli”.

It is a demanding trek because of the climb leading to the antennas of Monte Bignone, approximately 1300 mt. From here the Down Hill begins, a very technical descent that will leave all of you lovers of challenging single-tracks fully satisfied.

Return to the hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

This is a route of high difficulty.

Maximum height 1221 meters above sea level, about 33 km.

After breakfast, departure to the starting point.
