MEET OUR GUIDES

Alessandro Sturaro

Alessandro was born in Faenza in 1983 and, in 2012, after spending years on a mountain bike, he started competing in marathon/cross country races. In 2018, he obtained his Bicycle Touring Guide licence, certified by the National MTB Academy, and, in 2020, he qualified as a Mountain Bike Instructor, recognised by the Italian Cycling Federation.

Flavia Stivari

Flavia was born in 1980 and, after trying various sports (gymnastics, tennis and swimming), at the age of 18 she began a lifelong love affair with racing bikes!
In 2016, she founded a company through which, thanks to her passion and skills as a trainer and mental coach, she can teach anyone that life is like a bicycle: the apparently flat sections are the ‘ups and downs’, the climbs are the challenges, but there are also downhill stretches; moments when you can just breathe and resume your journey - particularly your inner one - in order to evolve into the best version of yourself.

Luca Monti

Luca was born in Castel San Pietro Terme in 1989. In 2018, after years of mountain biking, he obtained his Bicycle Touring Guide licence from the National Mountain Bike Academy. In 2019, he also became a Bicycle Touring Guide with the Italian Alpine Club (CAI) and, in 2020, he went on to qualify as a Mountain Bike Instructor, recognised by the Italian Cycling Federation.

Fabio Gioiellieri

I qualified as a Mountain Bike Instructor with the Italian Cycling Federation in December 2006. I have worked as a Mountain Bike Instructor at Staff Bike 2000 in Forlì, Simon’s Bike Team A.S.D. and now Appenninobike A.S.D. In 2018, I qualified as a Level 2 Coach in Cesenatico. I am soon to obtain my Level 3 Coaching Diploma and Off-road Consultant Diploma. I train the Youngest, Beginners, Students and Juniors sections of our team. I coordinate all Appenninobike A.S.D.’s activities.

At competitive level, I competed in Enduro races at regional and national level for two years, in 2010 and 2011.
