Genoa

MOUNTAIN BIKE GENOA

In front of the sea and above the city of Genoa there is a park, studded by several forts and surrounded by the Mediterranean scrub, with amazing trail to ride with our mountain bike. We will start the tour pedaling uphill on the narrow street of Genoa up to the gate of Fort Sperone, where we will start riding on a trail up to Fort Puin first, then up to Fort Fratello Minore. After a short uphill where we have to push our mountain bike, begin the first downhill of the tour, it is steep, but not technical. At the end of the downhill we will pedal uphill on a technical mule track with a lot of hairpin turn up to Fort Diamante where start the second downhill of the tour, the first part is steep, but not technical, and the second part is a fun flow line. At the end of this first part of the mountain bike tour we will have a traditional lunch to collect the energies before the second part. After the lunch we will ride our mountain bike uphill up to Fort Begato first, then up to Fort Sperone where begin the last downhill of the tour, spaced out by a flat trail. Arrived in the city of Genoa we will have the end tour aperitif.
