Safety guidelines

ITRS - International Trail Rating System

The ITRS is an objective way to assess trails and routes from a biker’s perspective, evaluating four aspects:

  • Technical Difficulty: riding skill level needed
  • Endurance: combined effect of length, uphill and downhill
  • Wilderness: amount of planning required based on mobile phone reception, rescue options, water supply and wildlife
  • Exposure: consequences of a fall

Punto di partenza
Tiarno di Sotto

Starting from the church in Tiarno di Sotto, we follow Via alla Sega until we reach a creek. Just before the creek, we turn right onto Via a la Van, marking the beginning of our ascent. After approximately 1 km, at a capital, we leave the tarmac and veer onto the forest road on the right. Continuing along the forest road, we reach the hill's summit, and shortly after starting the descent, a path comes into view on the right, which we take to descend to the valley. After a little over 1 km, the path turns into a forest road. Descending further, we arrive at a village, where we make a right onto Via Garibaldi, concluding our journey back to the starting point.
