      This tour combines mountain and sea and runs almost exclusively on loose, stony ground - tubeless recommended 😉After the dunes, there is a rough stony section but don't be put off by this, as the path turns into a good rideable track after a few hairpin bends.
      Shortly before the second ascent, the path is heavily washed out due to rainfall, it is important to find a good line between the cracks.
      Then after reaching an old mining area, you'll reach the route's highest point that branches off into a panoramic track, which slopes gently down to the north until the last short uphill that leads into the river valley of the Riu Irvi - pure gold-digger atmosphere and Wild West feeling. 🤠
      On the spectacular section towards the coast, the red riverbed has to be crossed again and again - often walking your bike 😉
      After the narrow valley, the riverbed opens up into a wide plain. From here a sandy track leads back to the dunes and the starting point: the Dunes of Piscinas, a desert-like beach. 🌊🏜️

      f big climbs aren't your thing, but you love cycling in nature, this tour is perfect for you! 🚲 🇮🇹It starts in Bologna, a city full of wonders such as the "Asinelli Tower". The only climb is here, alongside the beautiful UNESCO porticoes towards the majestic Sanctuary of San Luca. From here on, you cycle back down towards the Navile canal. Through woods and natural reserves you reach the medieval city of Ferrara, with a special cycling route on top of its ancient city walls. 🏰You leave Ferrara following the impressive Po river, which accompanies you to the sea. Discovering the 7 “Lidi Ferraresi” with their wide beaches – typical for the “Riviera Romagnola” –, you cycle towards Comacchio, a beautiful small Venice, and enter the Comacchio Valley, former marshes now rich in fauna. 🦩Back at the sea, you continue until Ravenna, a city of Byzantine art and incomparable mosaics. Finally, through woods and natural parks, following the Reno river, you arrive back in Bologna.Those three cities are rich in art and real pearls that deserve to be visited. As well for their food, as they are the birthplaces of tortellini, lasagne, ragù, cappellacci and piadine. 🍽 The wonders are many, as on the stretches of road that connect the three cities, nature takes over.

      On this tour you’ll cycle for 206km with a positive ascent of 4012m through some of the most famous Sicilian cities, several natural parks and beautiful coasts.This cycling tour starts from an iconic Italian highlight: the Etna volcano in Sicily, the ancient island at the tip of the Italian boot . At Etna’s feet, just after Nicolosi you’ll find the natural reserve of the Simeto Lavic Gorges carved by the river in the basalt created by Etna’s lava.
      The arrival in Bronte is announced by the expanses of pistachio groves. The town is well-known for the production of an excellent pistachio used in the preparation of many recipes, don’t leave without tasting them, in a "cannolo" for example.
      After Bronte, cycle towards Randazzo, an historic medieval town, and Giardini Naxos, the place where the Greeks first settled in Sicily. Late summer walks along the shoreline are just better if you eat an “arancino”.
      We recommend a small tour to Taormina: the pearl of the Ionian Sea, rich in historical beauties such as the Greek theater. Take your time at the seaside and taste a classic "cassata", you will never forget it.
      After Giardini Naxos, the last city awaits you: Aci Trezza, made famous by the novel "I Malavoglia" by Giovanni Verga.

      📍 Starting from the village of Fiè allo Sciliar you will immediately be facing uphill, but the arrival at the small Fiè lakes is worth the effort and offers the first glimpses of the Sciliar. 🚠 After a descent through the woods and a short asphalt stretch, you and your bike will take the cable car, which quickly takes you up 800 metres to the Alpe di Siusi plateau. The view is immediately enchanting: a vibrant mix of green, grey, brown and white, with snow traces despite the fact that it is already summer. 🚵‍♀️ As we begin our ascent, the Sciliar massif opens directly in front of us, and we can admire it in all of its majesty.
      At every turn you will catch different views of the Catinaccio group, until you reach the well-deserved stop at the foot of the Sassopiatto, at the William hut. A break here is obligatory. 🌱
      The panorama is even more spectacular: in addition to the Sciliar and the Catinaccio, there you can enjoy sights of the Sassopiatto and Sassolungo, the Sella group, the Odle group and the famous Seceda mountain. 🏔🏔🏔🔚 The tour ends with a beautiful shady and fast descent through the woods that takes us back to the cable car.

      Three days of cycling in Molise. 🚲 🇮🇹 💚
      This route was realised by @caterinazanirato: more than 200 km to visit this little-known region of southern Italy.
      Escape the chaos and venture between the coast, villages and natural parks. 🍃
      1️⃣ Termoli > Guardialfiera.
      Termoli overlooks the sea with its small wooden houses: the "trabocchi", structures built in the past by fishermen. Some of them have now been converted into restaurants where you have to taste the fresh fish dishes. 🍽
      2️⃣ Guardialfiera > Campobasso.
      Take a short break in Civitacampomarano among the narrow streets full of street art. 🧑🏻🎨 Once in Campobasso, get lost in the alleys leading to the Monforte Castle. 🏰 Truffle lovers will find their paradise there. 😋
      3️⃣ Campobasso > Castelpetroso.
      You will cycle through the Matese Regional Park: the perfect destination for lovers of every sport. Once in Roccamandolfi visit the Tibetan bridge, suspended 140 metres high in the middle of the mountains.
      The small town of Castelpetroso is known for the sanctuary of the Madonna Addolorata: an imposing gothic pilgrimage destination.
      Additional tips:
      💧 Beware of food and water supplies: everything is quite often closed.
