Among the guests of our farmholidays in Diano Marina we often have MTB lovers. And it is no coincidence that they choose to come to this portion of the territory. The Gulf of Diano, in fact, is home to the famous Salto nel blu, a springboard located in the path of the antennas, inside the Bike Park. This particularly scenic place comes alive every year with Freeride, Enduro and Downhill enthusiasts, confirming western Liguria as one of the most popular destinations among the MTB circuits.
The Salto nel blu (Leap into the blue) is the best known of the various MTB trails included in the Bike Park. It is a panoramic path that starts from Andora and ends on the crest of the hill in Conna, on the valley that divides the territory of Andora from that of Diano Marina, but it can also be reached from Cervo. It is inserted inside the so-called "Trail Antenne", in the eastern part of the Bike Park, that from San Bartolomeo leads to Cervo.
From the antennas of Capo Mimosa, the path - about 4 km long - winds in a series of passages on dirt road, some quite challenging for the off-road beginners, but rewarded by the extraordinary view on the coast at the end of the path.
For the beginners no problem: there is also the "Chicken line", that is the alternative path, easier to walk, dedicated to the less experienced.

From Diano Marina to San Bartolomeo al Mare, passing through Cervo, there are many trails for the lovers of MTB and related adrenaline disciplines: Downhill, Enduro and Freeride. For this reason some tours have been created within scenic contexts without comparison, immersed in nature and overlooking the sea.
For the downhill paths, in particular, the bikers can take advantage of a shuttle service for the transport of the bicycles provided by the associations that organize the tours, in order to easily reach the paths.
Here are the most important routes:
Of course, these trails can also be reached independently thanks to the presence of maps, available in paper format or downloadable online from the website of Tourism of Diano Marina.
In this video we see up close a cyclist who tries his hand at the trampoline of the Jump into the blue. The peculiarity of this path is not only the fun of the jump, but the beauty of the landscape in front of us, which seems to offer the possibility to dive into our beautiful sea!
We do not hide the fact that we are passionate about sports tourism, because it allows those who stay in our apartments to have fun and at the same time take home the memory of the beauty of our territory. What more could you ask for?
