e delivered just when we were about to report them as lost items. After some fuzz with the rental car we finally headed towards Finale Lugure, located some 230km from Milan towards Nice. After arrival we met one of our guides, Alessandro, who briefed us about our schedule for the coming week. The day was finished with some great Italian wine and food. And Finale Ligure, a city of some 11.000 habitants, seems very beautiful and lively been at this time if the year. We spotted also a whole buch of fellow mountain bikers in the city. Really looking for the first day of riding tomorrow!
The historically warm Scandinavian winter is now behind and the biking season has just started here. We however kick the 2014 season going in Northern Italy. This is a trip that we been really looking forward to. An early flight to Milan tomorrow morning. The first stop will be Finale Ligure. During the week, we are set to ride in five different locations. Goes without saying that our expectations are very high! Our closest point of comparison will be Malaga where we spent a few days last summer. While it (trails, accommodation) was good, it was not great. We honestly expect more from our week in Italy.
