Road Cycling Highlight
Mythical climb to the equally mythical Castello di Azzurrina, in Montebello. There are two roads that go up towards the castle, both departing from S. Arcangelo. Both climbs start from the Provincial Santarcangiolese (S. Arcangelo - Ponte Verucchio) and lead to the village of Torriana.
The first alternative starts near the bridge over the Marecchia river and develops 2 km (via Colombarina)
The average gradient of 10.55% with peaks near 14% make it a challenging climb, albeit with a short distance.
The second alternative starts on the outskirts of Poggio Berni, on this side the difference in height is over 2.8 km with an average gradient of 8.5%.
This climb is practically divided into two sections, the first to 10%, five hundred meters "to breathe" then a long section to 12%.From the village of Torriana proceeding along the via Torrianese, and then towards S. Arcangelo, just out of the inhabited center on the left we find via Castello.
This further climb, possibly to be considered as a continuation of the previous ones, takes us in about 800 meters to Torriana Castle with an average slope of 11% and peaks over 14%
