The Cinque Terre experienced by mountain bike are the perfect union of tourism and athletic performance. The curvy stretches and the difference in height of the paths, meet the needs of downhill’s enthusiasts rewarding with strong emotions thanks to breathtaking views and truly unique historical-landscape beauties.

A few kilometers from Porto Mirabello there are paths that lead from the beaches to the woods of the Ligurian Apennines in a short time.
Just think of the mountain bike route, which starts from the Castles on the sea and goes up the Val di Magra, or the route that literally flies over the Cinque Terre; from Biassa, one of the oldest hilly hamlets of La Spezia up to Levanto, reaching an altitude of 785 metres along the Monte Capri ridge path.

For the lovers of history and archaeology, a little further we recommend an itinerary that starts from the beautiful Sarzana and run down into nearby Tuscany to the archaeological area of Luni. Emotions all to be lived, with the view and… the taste, taking advantage of the stops in the various typical restaurants of the inland villages where you can enjoy the many flavors of Ligurian cuisine, with dishes that have kept intact the characteristics of a long tradition. From pesto to vegetable cakes, from stuffed anchovies to the marinara mussels, whether you choose the land menù, whether you prefer the sea menù, you will find the perfect dish to recover energy with taste, will be a piece of cake.

Here is the selection of some of the recommended paths to enjoy a wonderful experience riding your mountain bike:
