When the road climbs, you cannot hide!
A fairly challenging route which however reward you of the effort by bringing you to the mountains towards Rocca Calascio, the highest fortress in the Apennines.
Set at 1500 metres of altitude, the Rock has been the production site of several films such as The Name of the Rose or Lady Hawke and it has included among the 15 most beautiful castles in the world by National Geographic.
It’s highly recommended for those who enjoy ups and downs and here, anyone, by bike, feels the cyclist “sentiment”
Paved or gravel roads welcome the bikers along the ancient paths of thanshumance flocks where handmade cheese from whole sheep’s milk were produced on open-air.
Just take a breath and relax while charming the timeless beauty of hilltop towns and tasting some of hte finest local cheese and salami including “Gran Sasso” similar to “Grana Padano” cheese making but with raw sheep’s milk and aged in the ancient caves under Rocca Calascio: an unique taste of Italy!
Get the best performance enjoying every pedal stroke!
