It’s a great experience into luxuriant and flourishing hills and mountains for road bicycle lovers. This journey develops mostly on paved roads with low traffic and characterized by ups and downs. The tour also crosses villages with medieval walls.
It’s a ring route that starts from San Marcello (AN) and continues for about 20 km until Serra de Conti. After another 6 km this way crosses some of the fortress in Arcevia. The first one that we meet is Castiglioni. This is followed, in order, Avacelli, Palace, and St. Peter.
Now we are in the middle of our route and cycled around 53 km in total. So, following the road between the various ups and downs for another 20 km, we reach the medieval village of Corinaldo, for a stop.
Once regenerated, we take up cycling again for other 12 km to the village of Ostra, worthy of another stop. Then we continue the journey finishing our ride at the starter point, San Marcello.

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.
