Two-wheel enthusiasts can choose to ride in the mountains by hiring fat bikes, always accompanied by qualified guides. These bicycles, which are a natural evolution of mountain bikes, are fitted with tyres and rims that are larger than those of traditional bicycles, enabling them to ride in all kinds of places and conditions, especially on snow-covered routes and slopes.
Fat bikes are so easy to handle that anyone who knows how to ride can use them, even children or inexperienced cyclists, allowing them to tackle extreme routes but also pleasant family rides.
From Alta Valtellina – Livigno, Santa Caterina, Bormio, Valdidentro – to the mid-valley at Aprica, and in Valchiavenna at Madesimo and Campodolcino, it is possible to contact specialised structures for hire and accompaniment.
In Valle Camonica the snow-covered slopes on two wheels can be tackled in the Pontedilegno-Tonale area where there are two dedicated pistes and numerous off-piste routes in the woods: an opportunity to experience the winter mountains in an original and fun way.
