Valtellina Ebike Festival

Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th September in Morbegno (SO) will take place the second edition of Valtellina E-bike Festival, the biggest sports event dedicated to electric mountain bike with a rich program able to satisfy the any MTB lovers. 

The aim of the festival is to show the beauty of the Bassa Valtellina (Lower Valtellina), one of the most enchanting places of the Alps. During the weekend you can enjoy unique experiences among unspoilt valleys and ancient villages, you can taste good food and try trails suitable for all types of mountain-biking.
There are different activities: Festival Ride, a 40 Km Mtb challenge suitable for everyone. You will ride among vineyards, castles, historical villages, woods and panoramas in the Lower Valtellina and North Lake Como. Trail Experience, an enduro excursion on a single trail, dedicated to adrenaline lovers. Ebike Tours, guided tours to the most famous and suggestive places of Lower Valtellina such as the Val Masino forest or the alpine pastures of Val Gerola, where Bitto cheese is produced. A new tour of the 2nd Edition is the Gusto di Valtellina tour, an excursion along a very simple route (with little difference in height) that combines an easy bike ride with the tasting of typical Valtellina dishes at some stops along the way. The Festival will also host one of the main stages of the E-Day Race, a timed all-mountain competition created by Pippo Marani, a pioneer of bike-extreme disciplines and designer of some famous downhill and enduro routes. Also from Morbegno will start the Ti-Rex Tour, an easy two-hour excursion to the Parco della Bosca accompanied by Paralympic athlete Murat Pelit and members of the Ti-Rex Sport association, which has been working for years to encourage people with disabilities to take up sports such as mountain biking.
The Bike Village will be in Sant'Antonio Square in Morbegno. The village will host the start and the arrival of the tours and the stands where you can see and test the new e-mtb models and taste local dishes.
