Here we propose a ring tour suitable for road bikes for those who want to live emotions and don’t fear climbs. The tour develops along back roads between villages and landscapes, where the healthy air makes these great spots for those who love quiet and natural beauty.
From the town of Jesi, after cycling some km on the plain, the track begins to rise for about 6 km to Cupramontana, the capital of the wine “Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi”, ideal destination for food and wine tourism and cultural tourism.
We follow our own way, which now has a wavy pattern of ups and downs of over 10 km and that brings us to the next stage: Poggio San Marcello, a small town that lies along a mountain ridge.
Now we start climbing of about 8 km until Pian Dell’Elmo (1000 m above sea level) at the foot of San Vicino Mount, where being in contact with nature will leave you an unforgettable and unique memory.
Into the wood’s green, we continue to climb for 4 km and then down to the scenic and isolated village of Elcito (821 m above sea level) where a stop is planned. We are about half way.
Once regenerated, we resume cycling downhill for 9 km, then to climb for another 7 km to the town of Cingoli, perched on the summit of Circe Mount (631m).
The town enjoys a panoramic view that earned her the nickname of “the Marche’s balcony”. We go from Cingoli to Jesi covering about 20 km of panoramic hills before reaching the finishing line.

How choose tour and the correct bike for it?
The premise is: haven’t got the appropriate bike shouldn’t be a reason to give up. There is always a solution!
Anyway, the difference between “street bike” or “off” always remains. Therefore, in order to facilitate understanding what is the best bike for every tour, we can identify bike in the following categories:
MOUNTAIN BIKE: these bikes prefer roads and paths. They have knobby shells, gearbox with short reports to tackle even the toughest climbs, suspension and hydraulic disc brakes;
ROAD BIKES: they are projected for speed with compact geometries that make them extremely responsive to each push on the pedals. They also have thin tires and foster roads on asphalt;
GRAVEL: they are a compromise that combine some features and advantages of racing bike and mountain bikes. The tires are wider than road bikes and with tessellation, so they are good for unpaved and paved roads;
E-BIKE: it’s a good bike for everyone, but particularly appropriate to those who haven’t got a specific training. They are right for any type of road surface, but better for roads and paths.
Prices include the assistance of a certificated guide who guarantees security, knowledge of the Marche territory during all bike tour. Contact us and ask a quote; our offers are flexible and customizable.
Our aim is helping people to decide the tour according to its athletic difficulty and technical difficulty, so everyone can choose the best one thinking about the own training level and ability to ride.
