Cycle-Tourism at Elba
The territory of the Island of Elba is perfect to be explored by bike, mainly not in the high season. In fact, the best period for cycling in tranquility on the island are spring and autumn, while is best to avoid the summer months due to the temperature, really hot in some days, and to the mass of tourists on the beaches and the streets.
At Elba, ascents and descents alternate continuously without ever getting bored or too tire your legs. Actually the natural environment surrounding the cycle paths give sensational landscapes embracing beach and hill making completely forget the fatigue. Cycling surrounded by the aromas of mediterranean vegetation, reaching small villages and panoramic spots on top of the hills is an activity that conquers all the bikers on the island.
There are even some trails for less expert cycle tourists and for the families that don't want to leave the pleasant plain of the coast.
Between a stage and another of the journey itinerary you cannot forget to include some stops in the most beautiful beaches of the island to enjoy even the crystal clear sea. After a long day of cycling, diving into the water will be a fantastic relief!
