FATMAP difficulty grade
Of the three zones in Paganella Bike Area, the Fai Zone is the one where the most challenging shaped trails are.
Even if the name of this line might make you feel relaxed about the difficulty, Easy Rider is not the easiest trail you could ride in the area, and it is recommended for bikers with an intermediate/advanced riding level.
If you believe you are skilled enough, then this is definitely one of those you do not wanna miss at all, and you will for sure keep looping it for different laps.
The trail starts from Mériz hut - just at the top of the chairlift starting from the parking lot in Fai della Paganella - and it shares the first section with Peter Pan flow trailil, which goes along Easy Rider till the very bottom, giving you the possibility to easily switch from technical sections to flow sections, from rock gardens and roots to smooth humps. This trail - besides technical sections - also offers an easy jump line at the bottom, where you can practice your air time in complete safety, thanks to the really well-shaped landings.
It is also easy to pedal back to the beginning of the jump line and keep looping it for few times before getting into the last part of the trail, which is again shared with Peter Pan Trail.
At the very bottom - just in front of the chairlift bottom station - 3 road gaps of different sizes are waiting for you! Start from the smallest one and keep trying until finally getting confident enough for hitting the big one! And please - do not exaggerate - you don’t want to have a nasty crash in front of all the people staring at you from their tables at restaurant at the bottom! Once you've nailed the road gap, it’s time to jump off your bike in front of the crowd admiring you and get a cold beer - you deserved that!
