The Oglio Greenway (also known as Oglio River Cycle Path) is a bike path that follows the course of the river from its source, given by the meeting of the Frigidolfo and Narcanello streams in Ponte di Legno, at the mouth of the Po river, in the belly of the Po Valley. The Oglio cycle path, which runs along bike paths, secondary roads, dirt roads and embankments, is about 280 km long and can be tackled by everyone, with due attention, in 4 - 5 days of travel. By bicycle, the Oglio course should be discovered slowly, without haste, with a pinch of curiosity that will allow you to learn more about the vicissitudes and history that have characterized the past of this great river in Northern Italy.
Before this ride on the hills from Casale Monferrato and Millesimo, I didn't have a clear vision on the borders of this region. Piedmont, ok… and then? In almost a week of cycling, I got more focus. Riding this Piedmont bike tour through Langhe, Roero and Monferrato by bike we got plenty of steep ascents, glasses of wine and amazing sights so famous all over the world.
This Czech Republic Bike Tour is fun and easy: road signs everywhere, cycling paths... During our European bike tour we cycled through Moravia, Vysočina and Bohemia, pedalling along rivers and sweet hills of the two main cities: this is our itinerary from Brno to Prague on the European Cycling Route Eurovelo 4.
Prosecco bicycle tour: hills covered in vineyards, glasses and sparkling wine... Cycling in Valdobbiadene is a pleasant up and downhill passing by many wine producers where you cannot say no to a good glass of wine. The Piave river, not far, tells many sad stories when hate didn't spare anyone, even the green island known as the Island of the Deads. A mill, a castle high above, a villa and a long textile tradition: this is not only a cycling itinerary but a real bicycle tour into the living heart of Valdobbiadene and its surroundings.
Cycling Corsica, my first solo bicycle tour, was my graduation gift. I cannot deny that the planning was approximate since on Friday afternoon I started figuring out the destination of my one-week trip (it had to be one week long, close to home, cheap and in a place with mild temperature in February too), and on Sunday I left. At the beginning my idea was to cycle on the Danube cycleway: closer to "my" Trentino bit certainly far from my idea of warm climate I wanted... rejected! Next idea: Camargue and the southern coast of France until Barcelona (where I wanted to visit an aunt of mine): too far... impossible to make it!
At the foot of the Pale Mountains of Trentino there are many Dolomites cycling routes to discover. Under Dolomites of Brenta you find for example a 25 km itinerary allows visiting small villages, lakes, natural and cultural areas by bicycle: it's the Val Rendena Cycle Path, from the artificial lake of Ponte Pià up to Carisolo, in the heart of the valley.
From this basin, the itinerary reaches Tione following the river Sarca to then turn towards North, towards Madonna di Campiglio.
It is growing in popularity amongst pilgrims but lately also bicycle travellers, it connects Norcia, in Umbria, to Montecassino, in Lazio. The Way of Sant Benedict by bicycle is a medium-challenging itinerary which, along secondary roads, enjoyable gravel roads and paths, allows to visit the key places of this Saint from Norcia.
