Decided to mix it up today and do something different. Being based on Lake Garda for the summer I’ve been watching the tourist traffic each day in Torbole, most of whom are here to ride some of the best MTB trails anywhere on the planet. Bikes are cheap to hire here and there is a great bus-shuttle service taking you to the top of any of the mountains surrounding the lake. Today, with a good buddy of mine, we decided to rent some full-suspension weapons, pad-up in full-face helmets, knee & shin pads and head to the top of the 2,200m Mt Baldo in Malcesine for some MTB action.
To be honest, what I thought were decent trails where I live are NOTHING compared to these mountains. We did a number of runs down and I must have gone over the handlebars at least 10 times !! No major injuries though and was an amazingly fun day. Enjoy some pics!!
