MTB ON MONTE CUCCO

€170 per person

COD. 101 / Weekend for experts among the beautiful paths of the Park

The natural park of Monte Cucco, on the border between Umbria and Marche, is located in the heart of the central Apennines and is an ideal place for lovers of Mtb. Mounts immersed in the green, single track, long climbs, technical descents and panoramas will be ideal for those who want to have fun in Mtb and, perhaps, prepare some important Gran Fondo away from the summer heat, following the gps tracks of the many routes that inside the park.

All surrounded by unspoiled nature and a few kilometers from historic towns and villages such as Costacciaro, Gubbio, Fossato di Vico, Gualdo Tadino, Scheggia, Sigillo, where your families can spend pleasant days while you are cycling.

Two days of Mtb (with the possibility of lengthening the stay on request) dedicated to lovers of “fat wheels” more experienced, who want to train on challenging and fun routes. The first day you will cycle along the GF Monte Cucco itinerary, characterized by the long ascent that leads to the summit and the breathtaking views that you can enjoy during the ascent. Downhill then guaranteed fun taking advantage of the many single tracks that report downstream. The second day the route develops on the hills between the park and Gubbio, full of slope changes and fun passages.

A weekend dedicated to the most experienced and trained bikers, who in this corner of Umbria will find routes and scenarios that have little to envy to those of the Alps. A short holiday to enjoy with your group of friends, to ride with friends, or with your family, that while you are cycling will relax in the pool, visit the villages and cities of art that are within a few kilometers, or enjoy a nice walk through the park’s paths.
