5 BEST ROAD BIKING ROUTES IN ITALY AND WHY YOU NEED TO RIDE THEM

MARTIN SKUHRAVÝ - 09/03/2021

Fausto Coppi, Marco Pantani, Giro d’Italia, Dolomites and Tuscany. Have you ever heard these names? Sure, you have. They all have one thing in common, which is their origin: Italy. This Southern European country surrounded by the Mediterranean is home to some of the world’s most epic cycle routes that every road biker needs to ride at least once in his life.

We carefully handpicked 5 of the very best cycling routes all across Italy and below is our selection. All of them are unique and memorable mainly thanks to their natural beauty. What we really like is that some of these routes are not only picturesque and fun to ride but also carry historical significance.

Besides that, all selected routes have one thing in common: you can enjoy them all on ROUVY, in HD resolution and in Augmented Reality.

Monte Serra


Without doubt, Tuscany is amongst the TOP 5 spots for European road biking destinations, even if not the number one. Nowhere else can you find such a mix of history, gastronomy and natural beauty; and riding a Monte Serra loup delivers it all.

Starting in the historical town of Lucca just next to it’s famous neighbour Pisa, the first thing you see when riding south of town is a 19th century aqueduct, ‘Acquedotto del Nottolini’. It was built to provide Lucca’s residents with fresh drinking water from Monte Serra, your ultimate goal on this ride.

Pedaling towards the top of the mountain, you will be passing cypress and olive trees lining the rolling hills and a number of vineyards that are a symbol for the entire region. Reaching Monte Serra, there are more options for your return journey to Lucca. Whichever you pick, it will be fast and fun!

Cinque Terre


Quiet winding roads lined with prickly pears, gorgeous mountain vistas and fabulous ocean lookouts every other kilometre - that’s cycling in the Cinque Terre National Park. We cannot provide you with samples of the delicious Frittelle di Baccalà (dipped saltwater fish) or Vermentino wine, both typical of the region, but we can help you to taste the spirit of Cinque Terre cycling holidays.

Passo Stelvio


If we say Passo Stelvio is the world's most stunning road climb, there will probably be no one opposing. It’s not just the steep grade and rough glacier-covered mountains lining the hairpin road that make this climb an unforgettable one. It’s also the history of the place that witnessed racing battles, such as Fausto Coppi beating his rival Hugo Koblet and winning the 1965 Giro.

Passo Sella


Many people say that the Dolomites are the most beautiful mountain range on Earth and we have to agree. Cycling Passo Sella is like riding in a landscape that you thought only existed in your wildest dreams. Completely vertical limestone walls rising hundreds of metres high, dense pine forests and blooming mountain meadows - that’s what climbing Passo Sella is about.

Passo Croce d’Aune from Feltre


Dolomiti Bellunesi is where the rugged mountains of Northern Italy meet with the Mediterranean vibes. We picked this route crossing lower elevation Passo Croce d’Aune for these reasons: contrasts between lowland and mountain architecture, fabulous views and not too steep profile, which is otherwise very hard to find anywhere in the UNESCO listed Dolomites.

Picking 5 best places to cycle in Italy is no easy job. There are obviously loads more fantastic routes in Italy that did not fit in our selection. Some of you might say that cycling in Sardinia would anyday beat our top 5 picks and some might even argue that a cycling holiday in Lake Garda should’ve been the top choice? We are open to being persuaded, if you have a different favourite that you think should’ve been in the list. Try convincing us - tell us why, in the comments!

    My comment might look disbelieving to you but the truth is blessed are those that have not seen but yet they believe. I have suffered beyond measure to the point I almost committed suicide. For 16 years, I played the lottery without winning more than $1000 bucks. In the process of gambling, I lost my home and life became miserable to me. I will continue to appreciate the internet for connecting me with Dr Amber *the great" that made me a lottery winner with his sure winning numbers that he gets through his spells. Dr Amber made me who I am today and I want to use this medium to thank him and also let you all know that there's always an inner power when it comes to winning big on the lottery and Dr Amber is that person that made me win a lottery winner of $7,000,000 million dollars with his spiritual powers. Anyone out here that needs help can connect with Dr Amber today via email: amberlottotemple@yahoo.com or WA +12096910783 or call +13183065044.. Good luck and God Bless.

It all started when I lost my job and I was down financially and emotionally because I couldn’t be able provide for my two kids and staying home all day Jobless it’s not easy until I was checking on the internet when I saw a series of testimonies hearing people winning the Powerball lottery, I didn’t believed, but being poor no job you have no option. I gave it a try and I contacted Dr Kachi who told me what i have to do before I can become a big lottery winner and I accepted. He made special prayers for me in his temple and gave me the required numbers to play the lottery game and when I used the numbers to play it, I won a massive $344.6 million Powerball jackpot. I was so happy and I choose to review my winning in any platform, I would love other people to seek help from Dr Kachi through WhatsApp/number and Call: +1 (209) 893-8075 or email drkachispellcast@gmail.com by his website: https://drkachispellcast.wixsite.com/my-site
