The mountain bike guide will welcome you at La Spezia train station. You will be given the mountain electrical bikes and during a short briefing some instructions about the tour. After about 30 min cycling on the car road leading to Porto Venere which offers you great views of the gulf you will start a climb on an abandoned military road that takes you to the little village of Campiglia from where you can enjoy breath-taking views over the Gulf of Poets on one side and the sea of the Cinque Terre on the other side. After a while, you will stop in a little bar along the AV5T where you’ll have a tasty light lunch made of typical Ligurian snacks: focaccia, cold cuts, cheese… After this break the tour continues still for about one hour and then you reach Volastra in the middle of the Cinque Terre. You can rest a while, take pictures of the wonderful vineyards and the great views. If you feel fit enough you can ride on the car road down to Manarola. Here you can decide if taking the train back to La Spezia with your e-bike or if you want to make the last effort riding back along the paved road. The tour ends in la Spezia.
