This itinerary, which sets off and makes its way back to Bagno di Romagna is undoubtedly one of the more challenging for amateur cyclists, who will have the chance to test their skills along a stretch of rare beauty. Through the towns of Santa Sofia and Badia Prataglia, while also passing through Passo dei Mandrioli, Passo della Calla and Passo del Carnaio, the itinerary makes it way across picturesque mountain ridges rich in history and culture, home to shrines, old mule tracks and ancient fossil remains.
A difference in altitude of more than 3,100 metres, immersed in some of the most pristine nature offered by the Casentino Forest Park.
A distance of more than 140 kilometres for pure climbers, along some of the legendary Marco Pantani’s favourite roads.
SOME TOWNS ALONG THIS ROUTE (BAGNO DI ROMAGNA, ACQUAPARTITA, PASSO DELLA CALLA, SANTA SOFIA) ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO BE PART OF THE 2017 11TH GIRO D\’ITALIA STAGE, WHICH WILL SET OFF FROM FLORENCE (PONTE A EMA) AND TRAVEL TO BAGNO DI ROMAGNA.
