Road Cycling Highlight
The Passo della Forcella is a real pass from one side only. Coming from the coast begins the long climb at Borzonasca, passing through the entire Val Sturla in the wild Avetotal.
The climb is very gentle throughout and winds in countless curves to the pass. The wide road can be expected that here with a larger traffic volume is to be expected. But that is deceptive, only on weekends here is a little more motorized traffic on the way. Sunday trippers on the way to the beautiful hinterland.
The climb is worth not only because it is the easiest access to the lonely and rewarding hinterland of Liguria and nearby Emilia-Romagna. The pass offers just on the top kilometers also a fantastic view through the Val Sturla to the coast.

The step of the fork is the watershed between the Ligurian sea and that made of mountains and climbs.It comes from Borzonasca after 10km of non-trivial but "pedaled" climb.The change of climate at svalicare is powerful :-)The road is paved but it is absolutely not a pool table. Watch out for bumpy spots.
