Spreadsheets, meetings, commutes, sat at your desk.. It's time to mix it up. That's what we think too, so pack your helmet, hop on a plane and find yourself in Nice ready to be picked up and taken on a 3 day adventure on some the best riding on the planet, all on the best E-Bikes out there, the Specialized Levo SL. If you've never ridden an E-Bike before, check out how we got on blasting around Finale Ligure on some a while back here.

What is the Molini E-Bike Tour all about? It's based around some of the best riding in Liguria, Molini di Triora, on the French border near the Roya Valley and is all about getting you guys out and into some of the most stunning landscapes, amazing riding and fantastic people you'll ever meet or see quickly and efficiently.

  • 4 nights dinner at restaurants around Molini

You'll be met at the airport in Nice by a friendly driver ready to take you and your group to Molini di Triora, a drive of 1.5 hours along the coast and into the hills of the Ligurian/Maritime Alps. Molini is a tiny, historical village with one bar, two hotels, a witchcraft museum (really), a handful of locals and some of the best singletrack in the world.

FAQ

Can I change the arrival and departure dates?

If you are a complete group you can enquire as to any dates and any amount of time over 3 days. We are very flexible with this tour but as the accommodation is very small it will always depend on other bookings aswell.

Can i travel to a different airport?

The only possible airport to be collected from is Nice. If you choose to travel by other means this would not change the price.

What are the options at dinner?

If you book the restaurant option you'll be driven each night to an amazing osteria, restaurant or barbecue cooked by your host.

This costs an extra £25 per person including your transport to the restaurant.

If you do not, there are several options in Molini, the most popular being the Hotel Spirito Santo.

There is no kitchen available for self catered cooking options available at the accommodation.

I have a dietary requirement or choice?

Vegetarians or pescetarians are no problem, though please advise us on booking. Please contact us before booking if you are a vegan or have a medical dietary necessity to ensure your needs can be met.

Is there anything like a bar, shop or bike shop where the accommodation is?

Barely, Molini has the basic necessities to sustain life, riding, a bar, and a handful of shops where you can buy water, a toothbrush and snacks.

How many trails will we ride each day?

Depending on the length of the trails and long it takes to get to them between 3 and 6 roughly.

How hard are the trails we will be riding?

Quite difficult, the riding here is varied between flowy, technical, tight and high alpine single track. There is exposure in places and there are some trails with demanding switchback sections. There are very few jumps or man made obstacles, you'll find roots and rocks and most lines.

Is there any pushing or pedalling?

Yes, but you have an E-Bike! Expect each day to have around 1000m of climbing and 2500m of descending at a minimum, with uplift assistance. The uplift will be used 1 - 3 times each day.

What are the E-Bikes?

Specialized Levo's. They are equipped with Sram components and are well maintained by your guide and host, Luca, in his shop.

Can I bring my own bike or E-Bike?

Yes, you can bring your own E-Bike, you can rent a battery from Luca as long as it is compatible, they only carry Specialized. If the whole group wishes to bring their bikes please advise us in advance so we can be sure to arrange a trailer for the airport transfer.

You can bring your own pedal, non E-bike, but you'll be on the same program as the E-Bikers, unless the whole group bring their own bikes. Please inquire for a price for a tour built around uplifts.

In both instances the price per person will change, we can advise on inquiry.

How far away is Finale Ligure?

It's around 1.5 hours by car to Finale Ligure.

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.

Will i need insurance?

Absolutely. 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. Booking with us gets you a discount code for a 10% off.

The trails here are natural, old walking paths or built and maintained tracks crafted by the locals, for the most part by 20+ year resident Adrian Nash. The riding can be split into two parts, close to the village of Molini or far up into the hills. The closer to town you are the riding is short and sweet, runs ranging from 3 - 10 minutes in length, crossing the shuttle road at various points. They tend to be fairly fast, smooth and not overly technical, lots of fun!

Once you get up into the hills things start getting serious, this is what people ride here for and the riding is breath taking. It's a large part of our Trans Liguria Tour for good reason and it was when doing recce's for this we made the decision to do a tour here based around an E-Bike, it's the perfect vessel to make the most of the riding here efficiently, as the uplifts here can take a loonnnnng time to get to you, meaning you can access certain areas far quicker!

Once you get up high the exposure can increase on some lines, with many of them being old pathways there can be quite afew switchbacks, many trails combine the fast, flowing elements of picture perfect singletracks, loamy forest and epic ridgelines, with technical euro style endo turns.

You'll descend at least 2500m each day, and ascend at least 1000m under your own (the E-Bikes) steam. You'll do far more than this if the group are up for the challenge, the scope in this part of the world is incredible!

As the light at the end of of the Covid-19 tunnel gets brighter, thoughts are squared on Summer and the possibility of a a getaway. For many mountain bikers that means the Alps and that means Morzine. On current Government trajectories the opening of the ski lifts looks positive, your next question is when will they open and how much will a lift pass cost in Morzine?

We have officially been running our Ambassador Program since 2018. Each year we meet some awesome, talented riders who are not only handy on the bike but also great people who represent everything we love about the sport. When we look for riders to support their vibe off the bike is as important as on it. It's not always about being the fastest out there, we want to see riders who love the sport, ambassadors for riding bike as much as for MTB Beds.
