UnLearning in MTB riding Le Marche region
Experiential Learning in Nature through the Mountain Bike in Italy
What about the Big Picture ?
Beyond UnLearning (Learn to Learn)
UnLearning in MTB may seem a contradiction, but you can learn something new by unlearning what is no longer useful. Experiences can be merged, confused, mixed, hybridized. Thanks to this merge, confuse, mix you will be able to make those new quantum leaps. Unlearning does not mean forgetting. To block knowledge or to close it in narrow and separate areas, is an easy temptation when it seems that everything is turning into a continuous run towards the newness. Now more than ever, we need to renew our awareness so that you can give meaning and direction to the complexity in which we are immersed.
Which is the context ?
In Your Shoes (Inner Journey)
The journey in Nature is a journey of awareness, the path to oneself. Traveling we realize that what we see outside is the mirror of what is inside of us. Sometimes we take a path and we don’t know that it will lead us straight to the depths of our soul. The journey in Nature is a great way to reborn, the transformation is a form of healing like an inner journey made of a climb and a descent. The journey is the continuous inner rebirth, the continuous blossoming of oneself. The journey is not the final destination but the path that is taken to arrive at what has been proposed. Our destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.
Which is the reason why ?
Regenerative Purpose (Transformative Learning)
The huge natural spectacle, reminds man of his intrinsic weakness and vulnerability, awakens a sense of humility by reducing ambitions. The path allows you to focus on the present moment, to live the Here and Now. Stop thinking about the past, complain, regret and stop looking to the future with doubts and fears about what could happen. It is only in the present that we can operate profitably. It allows oneself to understand and recognize what most characterizes one’s person and explore that mixed path between thinking and acting.
Which is the methodology ?
Outdoor Training (Experiential Learning)
Practicing the reality of Nature. If the setting of the experience takes place in the midst of Nature, psychological and spiritual benefits are produced, contributing to the achievement of the educational objectives. Outdoor training is an exciting and engaging training methodology that leads participants to learn immediately and directly by relying on all their personal resources (mind, body and emotions) to achieve individual and group goals. In a real professional and personal training experience that uses the support of concrete and emotionally involving situations in nature sessions.
What happens during the execution ?
All Mountain (Evolution Lab)
The bike is a medium not the result. The bike is the tool to reach a higher goal. Training course in Nature that uses the metaphor of the Hike Biking on the Mountain Bike. An experience in touch with the Mountain is able to induce a strong sense of spirituality – that by replacing the contact with the divinity – calms the fears of the humankind. Putting the real experience of the individual at the center of the learning process – stimulating the reflection, the validation and the internalization of cognitive models and effective behaviors. To work on oneself in a natural context, to the rhythm of Nature. Through the Hike Biking and the help of the Experiential Trainer – you will recognize, understand and exercise your distinguishing features.
Where is the place to be ?
Mother Nature (Conero Mount and Sibillini Mountains in Italy)
Crossing places that become challenges to reach by relying on your abilities. But never forgetting to appreciate the beauty of the journey that leads to those challenges. Nature is not just a background on which things happen, but becomes one of the main actors. Nature produces in people metaphorical and archetypal reminders that influence human behavior in a more immediate and profound way. Nature does not need justifications, it represents in itself a wider reality in which man also feels that he is understood. Its metaphorical effect is not only beneficial, but basic. Nature requires you to adapt and this is also a way to get back in touch with her and overcome your limitations.
The time is now, okay ?
International Year of Plant Health (Spring / Summer 2020)
Yay, the event is mainly held from the beginning of May to the end of October 2020, with the frequency of once a month on the Conero Mount and once a month on the Sibillini Mountains (August only in exceptional cases)
Any plans ?
Agenda (Ad Maiora Semper)
We arriving at the event prepared, with a topic to work on, which will remain for the entire journey. At the start we will discover the traveling buddy. Different people who will live the journey each with their own challenge. Everyone works on himself and with his own times, taking advantage of his own awareness and potential. At the end of the journey we come back with new personal elements to work on, to start the virtuous process of change improvement. Nature is not a place, Nature is an experience. It is an experience of transcendence in which man recognizes himself as part of something greater. In Nature you can rediscover what you are and what you have forgotten. It is a practical experience of inner search.

Nature joyfully welcomes the man ready to evolve: she nurtures a genuine hope of living an important moment, building a relationship of love. In the eyes of the common man, the Wood appears as a simple set of trees, plants and animals. The man who takes part in this experiential event knows that the Wood is a complex system that moves, breathes, exchanges information and is constantly evolving.
