It was really AN EXPERIENCE! I suggest it to everyone. If I could rate you 10 stars, I would. Amazing sightseeing + riding downhill on a good (sometimes truly great) road is a pleasure. Difficulty: medium and I mean it. I had ride MTB before and it was a bit challenging for me. My partner had never tried it so there were a couple moments when he was really frighten. Equipment: it is not in the description, but you've better take sunglasses, it will protect your eyes from wind. Also we had +6 degrees on the route start (January). Guides: team of friendly professionals, who helped with all our issues.
