We’ll met at the Neptune Fountain in Bologna, where I’ll give you some advice and some rules to be followed during the Bike Tour. Meeting time can be at 9.00 am or previously arranged. You’ll leave the city centre following a bike lane, riding along the first part of the famous WAY OF GODS. The first 18 kilometers, on a flat track, are the perfect warming- up for the steep uphill that awaits us. Entering the Natural Reserve of Contrafforte Pliocenico, we’ll ride through woods and beautiful landscapes, reaching the characteristic site that can be seen on the attached pictures. During this last kilometre, the only way to go on is by carrying the bike while walking, but I can guarantee you…the view is worth the effort! It will probably be lunch time by then, and an historical tavern welcomes us with their local dishes and farm-to-table products and local wines! (lunch price is not included) You will have rode about 35 km, another 10 need to reach Sasso Marconi. From here, you’ll be able to chose between taking a train back to Bologna or ride back for about 18 kilometres, following the first track of our tour. Enjoy it!!!
I rode offroad for the first time in 1990, and have never stopped since then! In the past years I’ve trained and frequently raced in off-road Triatlon races, but lately I’ve discovered the pleasure of spending time riding with friends, as well as accompanying foreigners throughout this amazing and beautiful territory. Becoming a MTB guide and getting my Tour Leader licence was the natural outcome.
