The Ticino region is a unique part of Switzerland tucked in the south just across the border from Italy. At first glance, the somewhat posh region with a tropical feeling might be quickly overlooked as a riding destination. Palm trees, Bentleys, and multi-million dollar mansions that surround Lake Maggiore seem more like a facade once you spend time in the area. Beyond that is some of the best mountain biking in Europe with the Carbon trail being one of the best shuttle trails offering some unreal enduro riding. With the help of the Ticino Freeride crew, Mason Mashon, myself and Capture.Share.Repeat. spent a week riding all the trails from the valley to the alpine that Ticino had to offer.
Big Thanks to Ascona-Locarno and Ticino Freeride for sharing this place with us.
