Giornale del Popolo

"The novelty of Alfio Cerini lies in the combination of mountain biking with landscape photography. The result is a book with 26 itineraries and a mosaic of wonderful images that feature the mountain as protagonist."

Rivista Tre Valli

"This book is a collection of wonderful inspiring pictures. It's a coffer of dreams, but it gives you the key to start making them true."


"A journal that reports about the seasonal changes, the thrills, the path full of history in that pot of natural treasures that are the Ticino Alps"

Vivere la Montagna

"This book is the diary of an extraordinary mountain bike journey in Southern Switzerland, following the seasons and the emotions, in the quest of a tighter relationship with the nature"

Ride Shop

"Alfio Cerini describes 26 itineraries in Ticino in this richly illustarted book. The tours have different degrees of difficulty, and are partly very tough."

La Regione

"This book should not be just regarded as a guide, but as a publication with many other aspects, among which the historical one. It will lead you to the discovery of the traces of the ancient rural civilization. Every barn, every meadow, every wall and every slope has something to tell. You will combine the riding pleasure between these beautiful mountains with the joy of finding the signs of the people that lived there."

Tessiner Zeitung

"The pictures are varied, exciting and irresistibly beautiful. The dual function of the book - Guide to mountain bike trails in Ticino, but also diary of extraordinary adventures - can be seen in the choice of the photographs: from wide landscapes to small details, from nature through the seasons to glances over the signs of the past."

Transalp Homepage

"Well-made book, with interesting ideas for unforgettable biking holidays. A book that should not be missing in any bookcase"
