Cycling in Italy: bicycle routes, itineraries and tips
The Majella National Park can be crossed from different paths. The one we're going to talk about goes north to south starting from a district of Abbateggio, just a few kilometers from San Valentino in Abruzzo Citeriore (province of Pescara) to end in the well known Pescocostanzo (province of L'Aquila), not far from Molise. Visiting the Majella National Park by bicycle is a marking experience, for the variety of panoramas you meet and for Nature apparently impenetrable which wraps the entire cycling itinerary and bringing bicycle travelers into a surreal sort of world...
The Camonica Valley cycleway starts at Ponte di Legno but in this article we will speak about the lower part that connects Capo di Ponte to Pisogne following the valley floor with the exception of a couple of possible detours. Recently the local administrations finished the missing section of the path to link the upper part of Camonica Valley to the lower until Lake Iseo and now we’ll be able to travel by bike the distance between the Tonale Pass (and even before the Sole Valley in Trentino) and the river Po, till the Adriatic Sea... in complete safety!
Crossing Sardinia by bicycle means traveling through time and in the heart of a hospitable community, in a territory that hosts you like you were at home, in the heart of a beautiful land enclosed between sea, sky and the peaks of the Gennargentu Mountain, dry during summer and snowy during winter. In this winter bicycle adventure, riding in unknown gravel roads, old railways, and old Nuraghe, we cycled more than 1200 km in Sardinia, from the northernmost part to the heart of the truest Barbagia, in short-medium length legs, due to the short wintery days. For personal reasons, we have been forced to stop our Sardinian adventure in Orgosolo, but in order to complete it, we suggest adding the two or three legs that we should have cycled to reach Olbia.
Liguria is a land enclosed among the mountains and the sea where pristine places are often just around the corner. Thanks to the restoration of the old railway tack in a quite touristy area in the region, the Framura – Levanto cycle path has been set up that can be easily traveled also by families with children or people who don’t love that much climbing. This path for pedestrians and bikes is undoubtedly a very interesting itinerary to discover a glimpse of Liguria in an alternative way!
