In Finale Ligure you can experience an unforgettable mountain bike adventure and spend a real outdoor experience staying at the AgriBike campsite. To stay here you will need your own tent. In return, the site offers a truly cyclist-friendly atmosphere: cars are in fact prohibited on the entire surface. The campsite also has a bike repair shop where you can make sure everything is in order for the day's descents.The campsite is nestled in the mountains, about nine kilometers from the starting point of the Tour in Finalborgo. To reach it you have several options: you can cycle there following a downhill itinerary or you can use one of the shuttle services that will take you to the start of the Roller Coaster trail - the latter is the recommended option to avoid having to walk a good part of the climb twice . Alternatively, you can turn near Calice Ligure on the descent towards Finalborgo (this solution will also allow you to save a few kilometers); finally you can take advantage of the shuttle service offered by the campsite. Ask for information on the spot and get ready to leave in an elegant van with a retro look!Before setting off on the trail, we recommend that you have a good coffee at the Din bar restaurant. The Roller Coaster trail has now become a cult among Finale Ligure riders and the name speaks volumes: expect a downhill track in a "roller coaster" format. The last part is very demanding, especially if faced in wet conditions.At the end of the trail, go up again on the main road to Din restaurant. With a little luck, you will be able to board one of the many shuttles that run along the road. If you go up cycling, you will have to reward yourself properly once you reach the top!From the summit you cycle along the road before taking a small path that leads to the former NATO base of Finale Ligure, a “Lost Place” where you can take a short break before the last descent of the day. After facing "Cravarezza", a very fluid S1 path, it joins the "Engineer" trail. Classified as S2, this path requires more technique and concentration, especially on the final stretch before the descent towards Finalborgo. It is advisable to be picked up by the campsite shuttle in Bricco, located at the very end of the “Engineer” path.
