A tour through our Apennine mountains and some
the most beautiful villages of our region. We will cycle through the forest
surrounding the ancient monastery of Fonte Avellana, on the slopes of Mount
Catria, founded by hermits at the end of the tenth century and the destination
of our tour.
This will be a fascinating and demanding
challenge for the cyclists of the Limoncino group who will leave Riccione by
bike, while it will be a tour to discover new and unexplored places for the
cyclists of the cappuccino and cappuccino light group who will depart from
Urbino by bike.
For the Cappuccino Super and Limoncino groups,
the tours starts from Riccione, along secondary roads, through the countryside
and hills of our region, touching on the villages of San Giovanni in Marignano,
Morciano di Romagna and Tavoleto, and crossing the valley of the river Foglia
before climbing up to the imposing and ancient city of Urbino.
From here, the Cappuccino and Cappuccino Light
groups will also depart, after reaching Urbino from Riccione by minibus.
We will then descend towards the Furlo gorge,
impressive for its landscape and the views it offers. Riding alongside the rivers
Candigliano and Burano, we then come to the ancient town of Cagli, with its typical
old houses. After about 15 kilometres, we reach the town of Serra Sant'Abbondio
and enter the forest of Monte Catria, from where we climb up to the monastery
of Fonte Avellana where our minibus will be waiting for us with refreshments
and to take us back to Riccione.
