Guide/Adventure

Francesco was born in a small town deep in the northern Italian countryside, but soon, his love for the outdoors brought him to the big mountains. Aosta Valley and Mont Blanc pushed him towards adventure and big alpine rides. The mountain bike call was so strong that made him travel to the best riding spots and turned his passion into his job. Founder of Ride Over Yonder Guided Tours, as a Mountain Bike Guide you'll surely be able to catch him leading some riders on the best trails of Finale Ligure, feeding them the best gelato... in a hut around Mont Blanc, hiking his bike, or shredding some proper alpine single tracks!
