There are so many reasons to visit Elba Island in October. If you are mountain bikers, you have even one more reason. Because, on October 15th and 16th, will take place the 2016 edition of the Rally MTB Elba Island.
The starting point is Marina di Campo, on the south coast of Elba Island. In both days, the race consists of a 35-40 kilometres long trail. The trail is divided into timed stages, special stages and non-competitive stages.
The Anello occidentale
If you are here only to see the race, for you there’s also the Anello occidentale dell’isola d’Elba: it’s the coastal road from Marina di Campo to Procchio, on the north coast of the island; this road will give you unforgettable views.
