A three-day and two-night experience dedicated to experienced cyclists able to handle the 70 km of length and 2.600 meters of difference in altitude offered by the Crinale route. The itinerary offers a group departure and the technical support of a guide, if requested, to better face the numerous technical passages of the route and enjoy the beautiful view of the nearby Lake Idro and the solitary peaks of the "Brescian Dolomites".
The route covers about 120 km, with more than 3000 m of ascent in total (including all of the descents). It is suitable for very well-trained cyclists with excellent downhill skills, given the many climbs, yet it is the ideal track to experience the efforts and fulfilments that only the mountain bike can offer.
Terrain: road route from Brescia to Maniva - dirt track from Maniva to Brescia
For this tour it is possible to request transport service for people, bicycles and luggage.
Arrival in Brescia by own means (for those arriving by car it is possible to use the metro parking lot – Prealpino stop), and bike departure towards the Maniva pass. Alternatively you can include, with extra charge, the shuttle service to arrive directly at altitude with bicycles and luggage.

The landscape has changed: the "Brescian Dolomites" have given way to seemingly sweeter views. In reality, today’s route is not that easy: the gradients are continuous and you need trained legs to overcome the last kilometres.
At the arrival in Brescia you will be rewarded with great satisfaction. The Crinale route is a real must for MTB enthusiasts. An aperitif in the city can be the perfect cherry on top!
