Description of the route of the mountain bike crossing

 1st day:We leave from Marina di Campo and after 3 km of a flat path we start to go up the Literno Valley along an old military road.
When we arrive at San Martino hill we leave the main road and head into a single track technical path which takes us to the crest of the central Elban dorsal. 
A spectacular path cut within the fire divide brings us to a windmill with the sea visible on both sides of the path.
Returning onto the dirt track road we leave Colle Reciso behind us and ascend to the summit of Monte Orello along a panoramic path which at intervals passes through pine groves.
After seeing a number of second world war forts we go down a spectacular descent towards Casa Marchetti, then up again along the Buraccio Valley until we reach Monte Castello, from here we enjoy one of the best views in all of Elba.
Following paths with  spectacular views we descend towards the town of Porto Azzurro and then reach Calamita point, we ride the length and breadth of this peninsula, theatre of numerous mountain bike competitions among which a World Cup race.
Returning towards Marina di Campo, following the perfumed Capo Stella paths, then up the dirt track from Laconella beach taking us up to 300 metres where we pass over the top of Monte Fonza, from here we descend again to Marina di Campo with the sea always visible.
 2nd day:Leaving from Marina di Campo from Vigne Giunche (Vineyard) we go up as far a Monte Castello 226 m, on arriving at Colle Reciso we continue 6 km on flat ground then up to the village of Poggio 330 m asl.
After, a brief tarmac stretch taking us above the town of Marciana 410 metres, we take a forestry track along Pedalta Valley and arrive at Saint Cerbone hermitage 531 m asl.  From here there is a steep descent, which will enthuse lovers of speed, we return to the village of Poggio.  Next up to Monte Perone on tarmac and then onto a spectacular path with some very technical stretches, that brings us to an almost 15 km descent to the town of Marina di Campo.
