[Video] Deiva Marina, freeride paradise
The second chapter of the LiguriaBikeXperience tour stops at Deiva Marina, a small seaside village halfway between the famous Cinque Terre and Sestri Levante, in the eastern Liguria.
Here for years the mountain bike has been practiced, so much so that many important events and competitions have been hosted like the Italian Enduro championships and for many years Bike Shuttle tours have been organized starting from the Sestri Levante rocky trails to connect the Deiva Marina’s trails.
In Deiva Marina the tracks are natural, skillfully built and maintained by the local trail-builders and the BreakBike Sestri Levante association.
The territory has a lot of potential thanks to the mountains that gives the idea of being the perfect set for mountain biking and freeride.
The hinterland of Deiva Marina, for its characteristics, is excellent for Enduro mountain biking in all its forms.
There are about 10 trails, mostly downhill, distributed between Mount San Nicolao and Cima Stronzi (850 meters above sea level), along the Passo del Bracco and the hills near the sea, where trails run fast to the village or to the nearby Levanto and Moneglia.
You can start from Deiva Marina to make different kind of tours or for those who prefer downhill and freeride there is the alternative of Bike Shuttle tours.
You can also ride a modern E-Enduro (E-bike). This time the Bike Shuttle was chosen under the guidance of the experts of the BreakBike association.
