BicinViaggio and Siera Mae Lanfranco went for a bike ride.
December 28, 2022
The cycle path winds uninterrupted from Ospedaletti to San Lorenzo al Mare; however, except for a very short stretch of a few hundred meters, the cycle path now allows you to pedal in total safety up to Imperia. There is work in progress almost everywhere along the Imperia - Cervo section. When these… read more

We called this stage 00 as it geographically places it at the beginning of our third phase of the journey from Trieste to Santa Maria di Leuca. However, we only traveled at the end of our journey this stretch that separates the Pescara station (last year's arrival point and final arrival by train from… read more
BicinViaggio and Pietro Lanfranco went for a bike ride.
August 10, 2022
We have come to the end. Short stage, frenetic in some ways, both for the desire to arrive and because we do not yet know if it will be easy to return to Lecce where the train awaits us the next day at 8:20 towards Pescara. So, thanks to the fact that with a short time we would not know where to leave… read more
BicinViaggio went for a bike ride.

Today the stage begins from a beautiful basilica, the Basilica of Santa Croce, the triumph of the Lecce Baroque, far from certain burdens of the Baroque seen elsewhere. The road for the moment is flat and slowly we are approaching the sea.
We reach the Due Sorelle, near Melendugno, two imposing stacks… read more

The stage starts well: breakfast in front of the Column of Sant'Oronzo with a lot of pasticciotto with cream and cappuccino. And despite the bad weather seems to be chasing us, this time, and throughout the journey, the rain will never reach us.
Descending the hill on which Ostuni stands, we arrive in… read more

The Valle d'Itria is a marvel: Alberobello, Locorotondo, Cisternino and Ostuni rise an area of less than 40 km. We therefore decide to catch our breath a little during the seventh stage.
We savor the Lecce pasticciotti of the ancient Martinucci pastry shop (recommended to us by a nice couple known in… read more

The first real destination of our journey started in Trieste, to unite two important places for our family.
Dazed by the night noise that prevented us from sleeping until 4 in the morning, at 7 we get on our bikes again and leave Giovinazzo, a precious fishing village characterized by the picturesque… read more

We start from the B&B where we slept very full, having tasted numerous and abundant fish dishes typical of the Apulian cuisine there. But our fifth stage is mostly flat, so it fits.
The destination is Giovinazzo, constantly pedaling by the sea. In the middle there are some cities whose names evoke episodes… read more

The only real uphill stage, especially if you consider that the 1180 meters of altitude are faced in about 45 km. And some tears are really challenging.
Faraglioni, rock arches, medieval watchtowers, many breathtaking bays (think of those of Pugnochiuso and Zagare). And then, suddenly, you go down to… read more

With the third stage of our journey to Leuca, pedaled entirely along the coast of the Gargano promontory, we discover the most beautiful part of what historically was the Capitanata district. The Gargano is in Puglia, but Puglia and the Gargano are two things in themselves, both wonderful and unique… read more
