1st RANK AWARD TO UMBRIA, GREEN HEART OF ITALY AND HEART OF BIKE-RIDING FOR 2015

A wonderful  MTB ride in the green heart of Umbria, on the route of the old railway line that linked the towns in Val-Nerina with the ones in Val-Spoletana, passing through forests, fields, breathtaking landscapes, tunnels and incredible views. This route was recently awarded as the most beautiful cycling route in Italy, at Cosmo Bike Show 2015.

In a few kilometers, you will pass through cities such as Assisi, Bevagna and Spoleto, but also touch other villages like Montefalco, Trevi and Passignano, that you can visit with short detours. Between a village and the other, then, is all about a ride in the Umbrian countryside, cultivated fields, vineyards and olive groves.

Bike path, naturaI path, which in part consists of roads and partly in their own office, so far as 51 km to Spoleto, nearly all on the flat. In one day you can deal without problems, especially if you plan a visit to some of the cities roughly half-way, where you can admire a beautiful old town. Then, of course, we must consider the return, so if you are not well trained, the best solution may be to stay overnight at Spoleto, and then leave the day after on the ancient railway from Spoleto to Norcia, also inserting some detour to visit the neighboring villages.
