    Good job! Italy - Finale Ligure

    Finale Ligure is a small and nice town on Mar Ligure in Italy, here you can find wonderful trails near the sea, very particular spots and of course fantastic food like trenette al pesto!




    Other beautiful pics and info here.
    Cheers!

    Finale Ligure is nice but a bit overhyped. There are many other trails on all the Ligurian coast ( www.mtbsanremo.it ) .

    If you want fun in Finale Ligure book one or more days of shuttling with finalefreeride - going on your own you probably will miss the best trails and spots.
    Riding a 6"+ bike up the hills to the trailheads is not what you want to do more than once on a hot summer day.

    Yes, the spots in Finale Ligure are similar with the spots in Cervo, these 2 town are less than 50 kilometers from each other.

    See you in Liguria!!

    Yes we rode the complete route up to natobase and down but I think this is more an allmountain track. Was fun though, riding in the fog on top of the hill and then going down into the sunlight at Finalborgo.

    Yup, the Ligurian coast is a really good destination for spring biking, especailly if the Alps are still full of snow at the time
    We went to Finale Ligure for last years' May 1st holidays and to San Remo this year.Cool riding both times.

    San Remo

    I wouldn't recommend these locations for the summer though.Especially during ferragosto.Aside from the obvious heat the coastal towns become super crowded during the summer and traffic gets awful.

    I may be in Finale Ligure in April for my honeymoon and I was wondering if there is XC riding there? Seems like all the info I've seen so far has been for freeride/downhill shuttle assisted riding.

    No problem for xc, you can always pedal up instead of shuttling (that's what we did)
    Singletrack is mostly pointing down though and there aren't many smooth trails to my recollection, if that's what you're looking for.

    We did spend only about a week there a few years ago, so there's a good possibility I don't know the half of it

    Cool, thanks for the tip. I'm not really looking for smooth rolling hills, I just didn't know how accessible the trails were without a shuttle. If I can get a good long ride in I'll be happy.

    That lodge looks awesome! I am looking to visit this summer or maybe earlier, like May.

    I will be visiting with my family though, wife and 2yearold daughter, neither of which ride. Is the lodge suitable for them, or should I look for a resort beach type spot and then just guide with you guys?

    thanks

    If you want infos concerning the Mountainbikelodge contact us via the official website.

    Generally speaking I suggest to all dads willing to spent a quiet and stressfree holiday to choose a location wich makes the whole family happy: kids as close as possible to the beach, non riding wifes as close as possible to the shops (avoid hotels too close to jewelries) , riders as close as possible to trail
    network!
    BTW Finale Ligure is great for all mountain /enduro style of riding,
    shuttling is absolutely not mandatory.
    Cheers Mike
