ALONG THE BICYCLE PATHS OF UMBRIA
A week of travel to discover by bike some of the most beautiful places in Umbria, from the center of Perugia to the Piediluco lake. You will cycle along cycle paths, low-traffic roads surrounded by greenery and the route of the former Spoleto-Norcia railway, in the stretch that goes from Spoleto to Sant’Anatolia di Narco, the richest route of viaducts and tunnels.
The itinerary develops in the heart of Umbria, between secondary roads in asphalt with low traffic, bike paths and dirt tracks. The region is hilly, so along the way you will find several ups and downs, even if you will not miss the stretches of the plains. The most significant climbs, almost always with not significant slopes, are those that lead to Assisi and Montefalco, the first part of the former Spoleto-Norcia railway and the Forca di Arrone pass.
Overall, the itinerary can be considered medium-easy and a person in good health and active can face it without difficulty, also because the daily mileage never exceeds 35 km. It would be ideal to train in the period before the holiday, especially to get used to staying in the saddle several hours and avoid pain and soreness.
