A passionate guide
We met Giorgio for the first time with his wife Valeria, and we were instantly struck by his passion for mountain bikes. A registered guide with Accademia Italiana di Mountain Bike, he has turned this passion into a career.
He offers accompanied bike excursions in Alta Val Taro, the perfect way to explore the Appennines, and immerse yourself in total safety in its habitat and enjoy some healthy sport at the same time.
Giorgio offers organised trips or on request can create trips of diverse difficulty and and preparation, allowing all types of cyclists to enjoy the beauty of the area in peace. The accompaniment service also includes repair services, advice on riding, saddle positioning, and a recovery vehicle if needed.
According to Giorgio, Alta Val Taro is:
An Emilian valley that borders with Tuscany and Liguria, with an infinite number of paths that alllow you to discover ever new evocative corners of an area that time seems to have forgotten.
In the past, Emilian traders with the Ligurian ports had no choice but to use the Alta Val Taro, but later with the advent of motor vehicles, this route slowly lost importance, so preserving the beauty of the donkey tracks that allowed the traders to pass back and forwards with their goods. The pace of life, the natural habitat and the air quality have led to recent migrations into the valley of people looking to escape the frenzy of the cities, and find a way of life better suited to humans.
The possibilities offered by Giorgio allow cyclists to immerse themselves in the natural habitat, making the effort needed to follow the paths well worth the trouble. It features 360° views that offer unforgettable images. Or you can always while away an hour or two in local resturants that offer our traditioanl cuisine.For more information on Giorgio’s services and prices, please consult his information sheet.
