    Dude, I love Finale, but please loose the capitals. It does not do good to your message. Will be around again in spring to check you guys out. Could you put some more info in English on your site, sadly my Italian is not up to par.

    Hi,
    The start is at 9 usually, anyway you can leave later if you like. Usually the starting point is in Feglino, 5 minutes drive from Finale, is a country much closer to the trails.The tour usually ends around 17, but we are serving the guests and we are very flexible hours as. Usually guests who sleep in hotels in Finale is given a shuttle service, and the morning departure is at your hotel. We have agreements with some B & B in Feglino, price from 15 € (bed only), to 50 € with dinner typical. The price for the whole day freeride is 35 euro to each. You are welcome and we will organize the perfect freeride day.

    @Uzzi: planning is for april 24 till may 8. Niek is riding his strider bike like a little mad man. We have already been to the local bike tracks with Jappie and his daughter. We only take the trailer on double track.

    Snow in the flatlands at the moment. More than 25 cm and staying. Nice to have a white x-mas, but sucks for riding.

    @Eli, don't make me jealous... I'll start crying ;-) A couple of month and we can hit some proper trails again.

    2 more days and we arrive in Finale for 2 weeks of Capo, Grappa, Climbing and Riding!
    Eli, are you booked already or are you happy to take some Dutchees down the hill?
    Uzzi, you have time to drop in, or are you stuck for Aussi in the summer? Will come back to you on that after Finale.

    Hey guys!

    I just stumbled upon this thread. I'm going to Savon and Finale Ligure from May 13-May 20. Bringing my shoes and pedals from the US, but was hoping for some suggestions of bike shops that would rent me a bike to bike these sweet trails yall are talking about.

    Also, bringing my climbing shoes if you have suggestions of bouldering spots and places that usually have people that i could possibly sport climb with.

    Thanks so much!

    www.theultimatebikeshop.com is in town at the same place were you can get a shuttle (not the same guys as Alicaride). He has a number of different bikes and has a good rental set-up. Guys from AlicaRide seem to have some bikes as well, don't know if you can rent without shuttle. We will meet up with them for shuttles tomorrow and wednesday. Bikeshop in town also has some bikes to rent, not so much options but the dude is nice.

    Loads of climbers in town, I don't know of any bouldering, but I might have missed it. There is a bivouac site at Monte Cuco were you should find many potential climbing buddies. You could also ask at the climbing shop in town.
