Another nice biking route for the more adventurous mountain bikers… From Völs – Fiè allo Sciliar to the Schlernhaus (Rifugio Bolzano) and from there onwards to Tierser Alpl (Rifugio Alpe di Tires). This track might be better the other way round. Descending towards Völs will however be a tricky as it’s steep. It’s a bit expedition style across the Dolomites, steep and lots of walking with your bike. Some sections you will have to carry your bike on the shoulder.
I did bring my new Rocky Mountain hardtail bike but it’s definitely full suspension country…

Biking in Toscane (Tuscany), some nice mountain bike tracks in the Montagnola Senese, the hills West of Siena, Toscane, Italy. These tracks are mainly supposed for walking but can be explored by mountain bike. Some of the walking trails are very steep and descending can be tricky / dangerous. Not for the novice or faint hearted.
There is also a separate bike trail map with routes start/end Monteriggioni. Tracks more suitable for mountain biking.
