This is one of the most exciting adventures I ever made in my life, that's just the reason I decided to share with other people.
Wild adventure, for expert bikers who like a real adventurous week-end.
The Apennine mountain chain, in northern Tuscany, is a huge wild mountain area with the peculiarity that you can bike to the very top of it. The spot I found is a gentle round hill on the mountain ridgeline with a small lake and a hut, it's an iconic point of view with 360 degrees stunning landscape. The sunset from that place is simply something touching your soul.
Adding the experience of this sunset to a dinner in a mountain chalet, overnighting in a tent on the soft grass in a cozy sleeping bag, and biking down from the top to the village for 2 hours on a mountain bike, is the perfect mix of wilderness, adrenaline, relax, and sense of discovery.
We'll reach the closest village to the top by van, probably 1 hour from Florence, than we'll take the cableway to the pass, bringing all the equipment needed.
Then we'll bike to the top, about 1:30 hours, preparing the camp, and dinner in the hut with typical Italian mountain menu like pasta, polenta, mushrooms, cake.
Then the beautiful sunset show, enjoying the magic colours of the grass and blueberry bushes changing as the sun dives down.
Next morning, breakfast in the hut & biking down on a natural trail for 2 hours to the van
