MTB Mountain Bike
MTB in Ventimiglia Val Roya and Val Nervia:
Mountain biking is a perfect sport for Val Roya and Val Nervia. In the Ventimiglia hinterland, right behind the town, several paths branch off the hills until over 2.000 mt altitude mountains. It is almost impossible to describe every single path of these two valleys, because hillocks are constantly cut by thousand of small roads and mule tracks. For this reason we have decided to make a selection of best itineraries and tracks that from the seaside wind steeply up to the top of the hills and then go down to the coast...more or less. We'll try to give you more information possible about the itineraries and the best period to make excursions. Paths are usually well visible and forks are indicated by small wooden pannels or paint on the rocks, anyway we suggest you to get a detailled map of the area. The mild climate permits go biking all year long, so most part of itineraries, high tops excluded, are possible in every seasons. The variety of itineraries will make enjoy this land both to up and downhills fans, less those of plain... Uphills are often very steep and in few km is possible to rise high-altitude, but downhill lovers will be satisfied too at the moment of descending. Paths and tracks, often technical and gentle, will bring you quickly to valley bottom. A negative tip is the lack of fountains along the itineraries, so take always a water-bottle for a particularly long route... Obviously legs, bike and helmet are up to you! ...
Val Nervia itineraries and Val Roya surroundings:
here are a lot of interesting itineraries that wind even out off Valleys Roya and Nervia, for example behind the centre of Vallecrosia. The Val Crosia, towards Soldano and Perinaldo, show us wonderful itineraries both for interest and landscape's beauty. In Bordighera surroundings, on the hills around Vallebona, Sasso, Seborga and Monte Nero, we find other paths, like in Ospedaletti's area. The Sanremo hinterland is interesting too: S. Romolo, Ceriana, Baiardo and Valley Argentina offer several possibilities and suggestive tracks. Starting from Arma di Taggia, through the centers of Badalucco and Molini di Triora, until the high valley, we'll have fun on paths and routes perfectly cleaned by Peo Vernassa and his friends of Argentinabike. For the Italian part always important is the Finale Ligure area which, besides several cliffs, is rich of very interesting itineraies. Same territory in the French area: valley of Tinée, Bevera, Loup, Vésubie and the Var zone are a real paradise for mountain bike fans; here too we have the possibility to "work hard" on clean and well indicated itineraies.
