Some of the ugly photographs below look like they were taken in the wilderness; instead they where taken at the Parco al Po, very near to civilisation. The park is here:
There is a mountain bike trail in there, not linear: it is a network with crossroads, you could compose a circuit and go around; nice. The park is undergoing some maintenance works these very days; as some of the photographs show: this is really needed here and there; but I hope they do not take it too far: in some places there is now an avenue where before there was just a narrow passage.
Nature is beautiful in the park, but the trail is a bit boring; some of the more technical passages are suffocated by vegetation, I could not even take pictures in there (I was too busy extracting thorns from myself). I hope they fix them!
