Touching the land of Tuscany passing through our territories is possible!
Cycling surrounded by nature and staying in an isolated place to fully enjoy being surrounded by the forests of Faggi and Querce interspersed with panoramic views of the coast of Romagna.
We will set off from the town of Montecopiolo, which we will reach by minibus from Riccione, from where we will climb towards Mount Carpegna along dirt tracks with some stretches of tarmacked road, and then descend towards the town of Carpegna, the most important in the area with its very ancient Ducal Palace.
From Carpegna a challenging and spectacular stretch begins along a dirt track, which will lead us to cross the border into Tuscany, in the Sasso Simone and Simoncello Nature Reserve. A long fun descent will lead us towards the town of San Gianni, where we will have dinner, sampling the local food, and where we will spend the night.
On the second day, after a rich breakfast, we will return towards the woods of the Sasso Simone and Simoncello Nature Reserve, which hosts a military firing range in disuse, from where we will admire the surrounding view, which encompasses the Adriatic Coast to the east, and embraces the mountains of the Apennines to the west [...]
