A bicycle tour amid history and nature!
We’ll visit 10 of the most beautiful historical villages in the Marche region, along a 140-kilometre itinerary between the cities of Senigallia and Riccione, with a difference in altitude of 2,590 metres.
Amid breath-taking landscape, the continual alternation of climbs and descents will be a great test for your skills. So a good basic level of fitness and training is key!
We’ll visit 10 historical villages in our region and the first stretch of our journey will be by train, from Riccione to the ancient city of Senigallia. From here, we’ll leave by bicycle towards the wine valley, where the famous wine Verdicchio and Lacrima di Morro d’Alba are produced, covering the first 50 kilometres amid gently sloping hills and beautiful vineyards.
The first real climb leads to the town of Arcevia and the last two kilometres will involve inclines with gradients of up to 12%, but the beauty of the destination is worthy of the effort required.
We then head towards the valleys where olive oil is produced, between Mondavio, Orciano and Saltara (twice it has been the arrival point of a stage of the Giro d’Italia in recent years). Then, after a 10-kilometre climb, with an average gradient of 5%, we reach Beato Sante and we can begin to see the road that leads to Riccione, by way of Mombaroccio and Sant’Angelo in Lizzola
