MTB Elba, Mt Capanne and an unique lift

Second part from riding MTB on Elba. This time we drove from Lacona on the coast up to Marciana located in the central hills of the island. Above Maciana we'll find the summit of Monte Capanne, the highest point of the island - and the highest point of the days ride. Some time ago I saw Dan Milners Trail Ninja episode from Elba, where they try to make their traverse of the island shorter, by using a peculiar looking lift to the summit of Mt Cappane. So - naturally I had to locate the Cabinovia, as it's called, and see it for my self. The consequence; not having to ride the 600 vertical uphill was a nice bonus.

Note to people wanting to attempt the ride: Dan Milner found out, that the upper parts of the mountain is not very rideable - I also learnt the definition of bike n' hike. In other words, it's memorable.
