The Tenuta delle Ripalte is in the district of the "Capoliveri Bike Park", and is surrounded by a dense network of paths, which stretch from the sea to the top of Monte Calamita (413 m.), suitable for all types of bikers, from the beginners to the expert riders.

Within the reach of mountain bike, without even having to ride one meter on asphalt, there are about 100 Km of dirt roads and single track along the coast (well-kept and well-marked) that allow you to discover an Elba Island absolutely wild and pristine.

The small number of motor vehicles authorised to access the park also contributes to give a pleasant feeling of security and well-being in the unspoilt nature. The scents of lentisc and rosemary blends with those of the sea and of the maritime pine, enhancing the rare feeling of living "the sea in the mountains".

In order to cater for the needs of all bikers, within the estate there is a fully equipped bike centre managed directly by the magazine 365mountainbike that, for the technical characteristics of the territory and its beauty, has chosen the Costa dei Gabbiani as the ideal place to carry out tests on bikes and components to be published on their monthly magazine and on their website.

A part of the editorial staff (the editor/tester Davide Finetto and the editorial director Mauro Cottone) took up their residence in Tenuta delle Ripalte and, in addition to their editorial work, they offer all customers their experience in the sector in order to realize guided tours in style All Mountain (even with E-bikes) and a mountain bike school for all levels, from basic courses for children and beginners to those aimed to learn the more advanced riding techniques, as Enduro/Downhill.

The Costa dei Gabbiani Bike Centre offers mountain bikes Haibike and Gt of different types for rent. Starting with the hardtail in aluminium, ideal for lovers of easier and more "cycling" excursions, to the lighter models in carbon fibre, suitable for the more challenging cross country tours. Also available are mountain bikes All-Mountain and Enduro of the latest generation for rental with or without guide for organized tours in the Capoliveri Bike Park, and throughout the Elba Island.
Available for you are also modern E-bikes with assisted cycling, to allow everyone, even those less trained or bikers who prefer the descent to the ascent, to enjoy easily the beauty of these off road paths between the sea and the mountains.

The Bike Centre is also equipped with a workshop and spare parts for routine maintenance.
