Caldirola downhill bikeparkMay 3rd, 2011 by admin received Comments Off Tweet
Here at Candiesmagazine.com nobody’s used to to spend hours googling for news and stuffs.. we love the thrill of action, and well, one of the best thrills you can get in these warm Spring days is for sure a good and insane downhill session! So we took a day off to visit the well known DownHill Bike park in Caldirola near Alessandria (maps here).The location is really nice, not so far from the highway and at the same time in a quiet area, with nice woods and green lawns. Easy parking and food on place, too!
The Downhill Park is served by a single chairlift (15 € for a full day ticket) which brings riders on the top; then you have basically 3 tracks, one is medium level and the other two are for the experienced riders. Moreover a new track has been added this year.
Riding down in the wood you can also find quite a lot of different tracks and variations which allow you to ride almost everywhere in the area without getting bored doin’ the same track all day long.
Beside the usual natural obstacles (rocks, gymkhanas in the trees, and other friendly stuffs), you can find a good number of kickers and ramps, a parabolic wooden wallride and an amazing road gap too.
Being one of the most known downhill parks in the surroundings it’s easy to find there teams and bike crews taking laps and training, adding some challenges to the riding.
Definitely, it’s worth a visit for sure. Don’t miss the Regional Championship that will take place there on May 29th
Thanks to our homies Manuel, Tambu, Penna, Jonny, Luis, to be there and share the trip!
