Bike riding at the top of the alps
You can pedal without a map and without being scared of getting lost in the network of tracks and trails. Just take a glance at the display and you'll be know exactly where you are and how long it will take you to arrive at your destination. As from summer 2004, a whopping 600 km of mountain bike trails in the Livigno district have been digitalized. So all you need to do is hire a gps (in the hotel or from the APT) to hook up to the network. Livigno, where the world mountain bike championships will be held in 2005, is again confirmed as paradise for bike riding enthusiasts. If you are really fit you can ride along the same trails as the champions, who you may even meet as they train for the competition. But what Livigno mainly has to offer is scenic routes that are within the reach of families and not so fit cyclists. This is also because you can get up high quickly and without a drop of sweat - just by loading the bikes onto the Mottolino and Carosello 3000 cableways.
MTB The three nation tour
For fit cyclists, Lungolivigno proposes the Dreiländer tour, one week or four days in the heart of the Alps, discovering a region that is the meeting point of three cultures: the Romanic one of Engadin, the Italian one of northern Lombardy and the German one of Alto Adige. Departure is from Livigno (Hotel Parè), then across the Federia valley to the Chaschauna Pass, at 2694 meters, the longest point of the whole layout. The descent touches Zernez and Scuol, with the first stopover (Hotel BellaVal). You start out again the next day and cross the border until you get to Nauders (Hotel Central), then you return to Livigno after a stopover in Santa Maria (Hotel Stelvio) and the ascent to Val Mora. A total of 174.7 km to pedal around in four days, with the hotels taking care of moving your luggage to the next stopover.
Road: the rising slopes of the Giro
The grand alpine passes that all cyclists dream of, from the 2,758 meter heights of the Stelvio to the 2,658 meters of the Gavia pass. If you prefer road cycling you can take a shot at the slopes of the Giro d'Italia bike race and receive a certificate of achievement. At the start of the biggest uphill slopes, a scanner reads the map of the slopes of the Giro, which is validated at the top. Each evening the data collected during the day is inserted into the website, http://www.lesalitedelgiro.it/, where cyclists find their achievements sitting alongside those of the most famous professionals.
