Mountains, hills and sea ... Experience three trips in one!

Travel immersed in nature, discover the tradition of the local community by riding slowly. In an itinerary that winds from the Apennines to the coast along dirt roads, some paths and stretches of asphalt, it crosses the region starting from the heart of Italy to the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic Sea at the foot of Mount Conero. At each stage, enrich yourself with stories, flavours and experience the genuineness and history of a land that has its roots in ancient farmer traditions. Dip your hands in the wet cotton and create your first sheet of paper on which you can imprint the emotions of this journey at the end of the experience. Experience nature, learn ancient crafts, rediscover simplicity!

What they say about us

Surely recommend if you like to experience new things or if you are a cycling lover. Marco took us around, up and down the best places of his motherland and explained curious facts in both English and German languages. We passed through untouched wild places and forgotten villages by riding the latest e-bike on the market. We even asked for a small deviation from the original path and that was not a problem. I will definitely repeat the experience next year!

La bicicletta è uno strumento di esplorazione, che ci permette di spostarci lungo distanze importanti a velocità ridotte, ci fa godere i paesaggi, gli odori, ci avvicina alle persone dei luoghi che visitiamo e a noi stessi. Per vivere un’esperienza a pieno la scelta della tua bicicletta è chiave. Il nostro parco bici Bianchi è composto da biciclette elettriche da fuoristrada e biciclette muscolari da strada. Contatta lo staff di Basecamp523 per capire qual’è la scelta adatta alle tue esigenze.

T-Tronik Rebel 9.1

La e-bike Bianchi TTronik Rebel è sinonimo di lunghe giornate sui sentieri di montagna. Alimentata dall’unità motore centrale Bianchi (250W, 85Nm) e dalla batteria integrata realizzata su misura (630Wh), TTronik Rebel garantisce potenza in qualsiasi situazione. La 9.1 è una bicicletta biammortizzata definita appunto “Full” con le migliori sospensioni di questa categoria che garantiscono massima comodità e stabilità su fondi sconnessi.

T-Tronik Sport 9.2

La pedalata assistita è garantita dalla nuova unità motore centrale Bianchi, ottimizzata con un setup specifico per MTB al fine di ottimizzare l’assetto su superfici sconnesse e fuoristrada. Il motore da 250W è alimentato da una batteria da 504Wh, e mette a disposizione cinque potenti livelli di assistenza: nessuna salita o pendenza impossibile riuscirà a fermarti. Questa è una bicicletta ammortizzata nell’anteriore e con un’escursione minore rispetto all “Full”, permettendo comunque un’ottima stabilità nel fuoristrada, rimane più nervosa e con una minore autonomia rispetto alla “Full”.

Zydeco

Zydeco si conferma gamma di riferimento per il gravel nel suo modello iconico che si è evoluto negli anni dalla disciplina del ciclocross. Questa bicicletta muscolare è la scelta ideale per chi ama pedalare tra strade bianche, sentieri scorrevoli e asfalto. Oggi, la migliorata potenza del freno a disco idraulico con perno passante si coniuga alla scelta del gruppo gravel Shimano GRX, ancora più efficiente grazie al sistema dumper di stabilizzazione della catena Shadow RD+ e più ergonomico e sicuro grazie all’accentuata curva delle leve e al grip della presa, per un controllo totale su ogni terreno. La sella San Marco con grafica custom Zydeco completa una bicicletta capolavoro.

Strade bianche e strade asfaltate, che non richiedono particolari capacità di tecniche di guida. si tratta per lo più di strade bianche o sentieri scorrevoli in sottobosco o in aperta pianura che presentano un terreno con buon grip o con ciottoli poco smossi. E’ richiesto un buono stato di forma fisica.

icon

Medium

Sono richieste competenze di tecnica di guida per affrontare mulattiere scoscese e sentieri stretti in contropendenza. I passaggi più difficili richiedono un uso misurato dei freni e la capactà di influire sulla traiettoria attraverso lo spostamento del corpo. E’ necessario un buono stato di forma fisica.

icon

Expert

Sono richieste ottime competenze di tecnica di guida per affrontare single track che presentano molti passaggi tecnici costituiti da blocchi di roccia e/o radici. Si incontreranno spesso gradoni alti, tornanti e pendenze difficili e raramente passaggi scorrevoli. Vengono definiti “hard” anche percorsi che non richiedono particolari capacità tecniche, ma dove è richiesta un’ottimale preparazione fisica.
