HOLIDAY INSURANCE

We feel is it absolutely necessary and you are required to have a valid insurance policy in pace in agreement with our booking Terms and Conditions. 

With the UK's departure from the EU your EH111 card no longer covers medical care. You'll also want insurance against other circumstances such as bike theft, damage or cancellation for personal reasons. We recommend Yellow Jersey. When booking with MTB Beds you will receive a discount code for a 10% off in your MyBooking area info.

In light in the current/recent Coronavirus outbreak we also strongly recommend insurance once again so there are several avenues to pursue if a claim is necessary for any reason due to disaster, disease etc. Some policies doe not cover for this but we believe this will change in the future so always ask the question. 

CHECK IN / CHECK OUT

Check in is from 15h.

Check out is at 10h.

If you arrive earlier than 15h, we'll be there ready to welcome you in with a beer and show you about. You can get your bikes built up, go for a ride or explore the town. However facilities such as your room and showers may not be ready until 15h. We only ask you bear with staff and the cleaning team while they get the place tip top as guests are departing.

If you are leaving resort later than 10h, you are welcome to use the villa for storing your bags while you explore the town. We only ask that you understand the team will be trying to get the property ship shape for incoming clients, so please try and keep mess to a minimum and belongings tidy.

BREAKDOWN & FAQ

Can I change the arrival and departure dates?

The departure and arrival dates can be flexible subject to an increased charge for transfers, and availability. The cost of your accommodation and uplifts would remain the same.

Can i travel to a different airport?

Transfers can be arranged from Genoa, Milan or Turin airport subject to availability and a surcharge.

What is the cost without transfers as i want to make my own way to Finale Ligure?

If transfers are not required the total cost of the trip is reduced by £360.

What are the options at dinner?

You are in the centre of Finale Ligure, surrounded by an excellent selection of restaurants and shops. The kitchen in the apartment is fully equipped. We have written an article on some great Finale restaurants here.

What is supplied for breakfast?

A full continental breakfast including eggs.

Is there a mechanic service?

Yes, our mechanic is based at Villa Arcelli, our Riders Week property. You can take your bike to him or he can come and see you. There is also Oddone Bici, our partner shop on the way to the villa.

Is there a workshop, bike store and bike wash?

There is a workshop area, supplied with a functional Park Tool kit, stand and pump to be able to fully build and disassemble a bike and carry out intermediate maintenance. Bleed kits for brakes for example, are not supplied but our workshop in the Riders Week Villa can bleed brakes for you. Tools such as a torque wrench and spoke key are available.

There is a very secure bike store inside the apartment.

There is no hose at the apartment, there is a full washing station at our villa, very near to where you will dropped off and picked up each day. You will have a key to this and therefore access when you need it.

How many trails will we ride each day?

Depending on the length of the trails and long it takes to get to them between 5 and 10 roughly.

How hard are the trails we will be riding?

There are no easy top to bottom trails in Finale Ligure, they all present their challenges but they are all amazingly fun. You should be able to ride red runs with absolute confidence and be able to negotiate any black run in the UK. Trails are not graded in Finale Ligure, but most have technical features that would be on black runs anywhere in the world. Read more in our Ability Assessor.

Is there any pushing or pedalling?

Yes, dependent on how much you want to do.

Recommended bike?

We would recommend an aggressive enduro bike for Finale Ligure. It should be well maintained and modern so that parts can be sourced if they break. We suggest a minimum 0f 150mm/140mm travel and DH casing tyres are highly recommended.

You should bring a full face helmet, hydration pack and all the protective equipment you would feel comfortable wearing.

Can i hire a bike?

Yes there is an option to rent directly from us a Transition Patrol or Sentinel, or other hire bike options in the town of Finale Ligure. Check out how here.

What is the average cost of an evening out?

A pint of Italian pilsner will set you back between €4.50 and €6 depending on where and when you buy it. Dinner in a decent restaurant will cost you around €8 - €20 per main course.

Will I need insurance?

Absolutely, you are required to have a valid insurance policy in pace in agreement with our booking Terms and Conditions. With the UK's departure from the EU your EH111 card no longer covers medical care. You'll also want insurance against other circumstances such as bike theft, damage or cancellation for personal reasons. We recommend Yellow Jersey. When booking with MTB Beds you will receive a discount code for a 10% off in your MyBooking area info.

BOOKING YOUR FLIGHTS

Please check your flight times with us before you book them to avoid long wait times at the airport, sometimes this is inevitable but we try to minimise it as much as possible with prior information from you. Some flights from Ireland and Scotland have late arrival times so please do check before booking them. 

From experience of late arrival times in resort, after 22h, we strongly advise looking into flights that arrive the day before the Riders Week package starts (Arrive Saturday and check in to the villa on the Sunday) and either transferring to a hotel in Finale Ligure on the Saturday, or using an airport hotel in Nice. Something many clients have done and found it greatly reduced fatigue and stress of getting yourself together for 9h uplifts on the Monday morning after a late arrival.

Surcharges

Transfers are included to or from Nice or Genoa airport, on Sundays only. For any other day please enquire for a price.

Nice & Genoa are included at no extra cost, except for scheduled departures before 10h and for arrivals after 20h. Flights booked to depart or arrive after these times will incur a surcharge of €100 per van. Delayed flights arriving after 20h will not incur a surcharge

Wait times may occur and cannot be foreseen until all bookings are in our system, we will try and keep these to less than 1 hour but it maybe more, possibly up to 4 hours, though this is unlikely and has never occured before. Wait times may apply to arrivals and departures. IE We may drop clients at the airport 4 hours before they are required to be there for check in.

If you do not want to wait a private transfer or the train is an option for them. Fees are dependent on dates and availability.

Transfers to or from Milan Airports may incur a surcharge of between €350 & €500 per van, each way if this is not our primary pick up destination. IE If we have not changed the preferred airport in the booking process.

TOURIST TAX

There is a €5 per person per week Tourist tax which has been introduced from 2019, this will be collected at the end of your stay in cash and is paid directly to the local council town hall. 

How the riding works

You will have your own uplift vehicle, a driver and guide dedicated to your group for 5 days. Upon booking you'll speak to our team to discuss what you'd like to ride for the week. If you've never been before and want to see all that classic Finale Ligure has to offer, then we can plan a tour of the trails that best suits your group's ability.

Latest mountain biking News and Events

After the dismal events of Summer 2021, expectations are high for 2022.

Watch this space...

On July 12th France announced the latest measures to help combat a fourth wave of Covid-19, in an attempt to keep the country open and not risk a surge of the delta variant, such as the UK has seen. These measures are designed to avoid a fourth lockdown, and essentially make life normal for some, and very abnormal for others.

If you're vaccinated, travelling to Europe during the summer and Autumn months looks to be quite straight forward. At the time of writing the governments of Europe have come to the understanding that if you have been jabbed, you can travel. Restrictions remain in place for countries listed as red, with most of Europe adopting a form of traffic light system. However the amber rating or it's equivalent, which previously came with some form of quarantine, no longer does. Essentially that opens up much of Europe and the UK, as long as you have a valid vaccination.
