The coastal roads round the island are full of bends, one after the other, some at the top of the cliffs, others surrounded by lush vegetation; you can drive amidst chestnut trees at a height of 400 metres above sea level with the deep blue sea right below you...be careful you don't fall in!
Spring is without a doubt the best time of the year if you want to go for a motorbike tour, because that's when the climate is mild and all the flowers are in full bloom.
This is the season when many motorbike clubs choose to come to Elba for their exhibitions and gatherings; every Easter, for example, the Vespa and Lambretta Club come to Morcone, in Capoliveri, and the Island of Elba Ducati Desmo Owners Club has its Centocurve (a hundred bends) gathering every September.
Suggestion from Infoelba:Since the roads are often narrow and winding, and also very smooth please watch your speed. Even drizzle or a light shower can make the roads slippery so please drive carefully! Remember all you jeep fans that the Island of Elba has many grit roads and beautiful mule tracks, but you are not allowed to drive on all of them by motorbike, because some are subject to the rules and regulations of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park; for this reason, before you set off, we suggest you phone the Park at 0565 919411 or contact the Forest Rangers at 0565 915067.
