Our favourite trekking routes

In Emilia Romagna & Marche

Discover our cycling routes on the Riviera, with beautiful views of breathtaking hills, villages, castles and villages.

Our location is ideal as a starting point for road/mountain bikes and for beach holidays. We will deliver you maps and all the necessary information about our fantastic routes.

Among the most beautiful and much appreciated by cyclists is the panoramic road that goes from Gabicce to Pesaro, and overlooks the sea. You get to Fano up to the villages of Trebbiantico, Candelaria, San Costanzo, Calcinelli and Rosciano, for a total distance of around 132 miles, a ride of about 5 hours.

1.Mountain of San Bartolo

The cycling itinerary crosses the San Bartolo mountain, on the panoramic road that starts from Gabicce Mare and arrives in Pesaro, one of the favorite routes of our cyclists, and which it will also become for those who try it for the first time!

This itinerary is ideal for those who haven’t had much time to train and want a very varied route, and for those who want to spend a few hours of sport with beautiful views all offered by Monte San Bartolo!

Always departure from Cattolica Porto area. From here we touch the border with Gabicce Mare follow the signs for Gabicce Monte, continue on the road that leads to the Baia Imperiale disco! Once we arrive in the square, we continue along the panoramic road, which will lead us to Pesaro.

Point of interest

There are many points of interest along the parkway. The first is in the square of Gabicce Monte the view of the sea is simply amazing! The second stop is Baia Vallugola a natural bay with a marina! Going down will be easy, but the hill immediately present along the road won’t be !!! Another must is Casteldimezzo with an important and ancient church!!! Another small place to visit is Fiorenzuola di Focara, a small town overlooking the sea! We cross Santa Maria Alta  and reach Pesaro, where you can stop and discover the historic center of the city!

points of interests

Every village this road passes through is worth a stop. Morciano is a small town a few kilometers from the coast, a charming town full of shops.

Saludecio, Mondaino, Tavoleto and Montefiore are small villages where ancient traditions are still alive. It is impossible not to stop and admire the beauty of the churches, palaces, towers and ancient walls.

2. Medieval Castles

Are you trained enough and are you a lover of climbing?
Almost all the paths are swinging for your legs … For all those who love medieval castles, villages, borghi, this is the path that is perfectly suited to you. As always, we start from Cattolica and continue in the direction of Morciano di Romagna, we go with the first ascent of Saludecio, a small descent then up towards Mondaino. From here we continue to Tavoleto, and then Montefiore Conca, to then follow the signs that take us back to Morciano di Romagna and then to Cattolica.

3. Le Scalate (climbing)

Are you trained enough and a lover of climbing? Then this is the tailor-made route for you. As always, we leave from Cattolica to continue in the direction of Morciano di Romagna. From here we continue towards Osteria Nuova with small ups and downs that are not too difficult. The climb before reaching Montescudo is totally different, the gradient is more than 10 percent. For this we recommend a 39-25 or compact for the less trained.

From Montescudo to Fratte go down through Santa Maria del Piano and then begin to climb towards Sassofeltrio. The Sassofeltrio climb is long and very demanding. From Sassofeltrio we continue to Montelliciano and here the climbs begin to be more important and will lead us to an altitude of 581 meters above sea level.

After that, proceed towards Monte Grimano Terme and after a few ups and downs, the road descends rapidly to Mercatino Conca and then towards Cattolica.
