Amiata – Trails Prepared and Ready for the Season.

The Amiata is one hour from the Bandite Trail area and has a different feel to the riding area, herbal as it is 1745 metres high on the top of an old volcano. WE had a look around the trails and shot a few riderrs, to see what is happening this year. The Amiata Freeride have just finished cleaning the trails for the start of this season, and with a clear freeride and DH feel to the area the trails are pretty amazing. Interestingly though they are rideable by all levels of rider and offere great flow as well with the “Lunga” being nearly 9 km long through the woods. The trails are serviced by a lift service on the road and can be booked, or if you feel like it access is easy by pedaling. We put together a range of mterial showing whats happening on and around the Amiata this year!

The top around the trail starts is a great place to walk and easily accessible with the car.

This year there is no large jump at the end, bu the trail has been really well cleaned and is very good fun to ride.
