A life-long rider, Michele first climbed aboard a minibike when he was 7 and, from that moment, his life has been all about two wheels. His passion for off-roading is home-grown, developed in Tuscany with its countless miles of hills and woodland in which to get lost, find oneself and, above all, feel free. First with his dad and then, as the years went by, alone, pushing himself ever onward towards new destinations, to quench an unending thirst for knowledge.
Today, Michele is an off-road riding instructor and a relentless traveller.
“The bike can push you towards places that seem unreachable and enrich your life with extraordinary experiences” he tells us when we call him for a chat. A man who still gets excited when talking about his trip along the world’s highest accessible road, some 5000 metres up in the Himalayan peaks, he knows all about breaking boundaries.
The perfect person, in fact, to tell us everything we need to know before straying from the beaten track and setting off in search of new horizons.
Here are his tips for taking on an off-road trip.
