COD. 110 / Week end on the roads of the Randonnée of Assisi

A journey of over 200 kilometers with departure and arrival in Assisi, which winds through one of the most characteristic and well known-central part of Umbria. Overcoming rolling hills and ups and downs, cycling through vineyards and olive groves, you will discover some of the most beautiful cities in the region, such as Foligno, Spoleto, Todi, Perugia, Spello, Bevagna, Montefalco and much more.

An extraordinary journey together with your travel card, to be stamped at the rando points along the route, to obtain the patent as the real randonneeurs. Only that you can do it in two days instead of one, having more time to enjoy the views, visit the villages and the cities, taste good wine and good food

The itinerary develops in the heart of Umbria, touching some of the most famous and evocative centers as well as Assisi, such as Foligno, Spoleto, Todi and Perugia. To these are added the small characteristic villages that have made Umbria famous, such as Bevagna, Trevi, Montefalco, Massa Martana. All this always trying to take advantage of roads with little traffic and proposing some roads and areas not well known, such as the stretch between Spoleto and Todi. The two longest climbs are those of the pass of Viepri and of Perugia, but do not have important slopes. To these, however, there are numerous short but challenging climbs that characterize the region and contribute to a height difference of over 2,500 meters. The path is still challenging and requires a good level of training. A cyclist who trains regularly a couple of times a week can face it without any problem. The recommended bike is the racing bike with front compact crankset.
