Winter Enduro

FEBRUARY – MAY,
OCTOBER – NOVEMBER

For those who want to train for the next Enduro race season, or simply want to get away from their rainy and muddy home trails in the winter months, we have put together a long weekend full of descending and Enduro madness in the mountains above the cities of Pisa and Massa-Carrara.

Both locations are perfectly set up for tailoring a winter training programme to your group’s skills and fitness level. Most of the trails can either be reached pedalling on double tracks or can also be shuttled, depending on the amount of training you would like to get in.

CALCI (PISA)

Monte Serra towers almost 1000m above Calci, a town just north of Pisa, and is essentially a natural bike park, sculptured by the local Pro’s. The trails are incredibly well built and offer the complete package, from steep and rocky downhill tracks to fast Enduro style runs.
Facing the Tuscan Mediterranean coast, Monte Serra is the perfect winter riding location and has been home to the Toscano Enduro Series. This amazing playground is a short pedal away from our winter base camp, which is situated at 600m just under Monte Serra.

MASSA-CARRARA

Just a short trip down the coast, we have the option to extend our winter riding location to Massa-Carrara, situated deep in the famous Marble Mountains. The trail networks have been carved out by the locals for over 15 years, also hosting the Toscana Enduro Series, along with many other MTB events. With two totally diverse mountain ranges, from old school rough steep and technical tracks to pump and jump flow heaven, it is the perfect addition to complete your winter riding or training.

Winter Accommodation

BEER BREWERY AND BIKES

La Staffetta Beer Brewery has partnered with Ridgeline to create the perfect winter camp villa directly within the microbrewery itself! Everything that you would expect for the ultimate bike base just got a little better. As standard, you can expect our usual dedicated professional Park Tool bike garage with secure bike lock up all in the same building. The villa boasts Tuscany’s traditional living experience with spacious rooms, balcony and social area, but with the benefit of having its own dedicated bar right below you.

AUTHENTIC FOOD

A typical continental breakfast including the famous Italian coffee to kick start the day will be served in the brewery. The dinners will be a two-course dinner with complimentary wine and water in one of the best restaurants in Calci. For lunch we will stop at one of the local restaurants where you can expect to pay around €10 for a typical Italian lunch meal.

BIKE STORAGE AND WORKSHOP

Incorporated into the brewery we have built a fully private, lockable professional bike storage and maintenance garage. Everything you need to build and maintain your bike is available to you 24/7 with our full Park Tool set-up, air compressor and jet wash area. The garage is located within the main house, which means you are never more than a few metres away from your loved one!
