Il miglior tracciato dell' isola... La Buca del Bandito è caratterizzata da quattro diverse tipologie di terreno e offre una delle viste più belle... La prima parte in salita è pedalabile senza problemi a parte l' ultimo tratto (150m), dove dovrete spingere su le vostre bici. Arrivati in vetta (Cima del Monte 525m) potrete osservare l' isola d' Elba in tutta la sua bellezza e gran parte delle isole dell' arcipelago Toscano. Qui ha inizio la discesa, 3,5 km di trail che cambia spesso faccia mixando parti tecniche e flow con scenari e terreni sempre diversi..

The best track on the island ... The Buca del Bandito is characterized by four different types of terrain and offers one of the most beautiful views ... The first part uphill can be pedaled without problems apart from the last stretch (150m), where you have to push up your bikes. Once you reach the top (Cima del Monte 525m) you can observe the island of Elba in all its beauty and most of the islands of the Tuscan archipelago. Here the descent begins, 3.5 km of trail that often changes face by mixing technical and flow parts with always different scenarios and terrains ..

      I guess this one is always “variable” since you are literally riding down the stream for a short stretch :)
