How are our trails
Like you surely know an off-road vehicle is suitable for mountain and dirty road but is too slow and fuel hungry on regular road or on the motorway. In this case a city car or a race car is better, faster and cheaper. At the same way a mountain bike allows to be more strictly in touch with nature and to visit naturalistic areas along dirty road. A packed lunch is the optimal solution to avoid lost of time during the day.
Road bike tours don't allow you to go in dirty road, but let you cover long distance and visit many villages in countryside regural road, on hills and flatland.
We can also advice some bike rental in order to give you the possibility to leave you bicycle at home and have a lighter voyage.
