Day 1

Cingoli the Marche Balcony

We start our experience at full gas! We'll climb first Pian dell'Elmo, the top of the Natural Reserve of S.Vicino/Canfaito going close to Borgo Elcito, the little Tibet of Le Marche. Then you'll arrive at the famous Cingoli , also known as "Le Marche's balcony", thanks to its 360° panoramic view from the top of Sibillini to Conero and the seafront!

Day 2

Cupi Climb from Fiastra Lake 

The road climbs regularly, between green meadows and woods. For Cupi the slope becomes challenging, about 10%, but after a while it becomes much more easy. There are no more trees, only fields and pastures. This will be the landscape, typical of the Sibillini, which will accompany us for a while. We arrive at the top at the crossroads for Nemi, then go down and go up a bit to the village of Cupi

Day 3

Passo della Cappella

This is a breathtaking stage. Climbing the beautiful road of Passo della Cappella heading down to the historical borgo of Treia.

Day 4 

Gola della Rossa and Frasassi

In addition to crossing the nature reserve of S. Vicino / Canfaito, the main part of this route will also be our climb to Monte Predicatore in a truly unspoiled area , and descending to Genga, Gola della Rossa and Frasassi, a rocky canyon of dramatic beauty and panoramic views.

Day 5

Sassotetto Climb

Nothing to envy to alpine stages of Giro d'Italia! Considered as the queen climb of the whole Sibillini area, but this time we'll challenge it from Bolognola side, this long and panoramic road will keep you silent. Enjoy the most you can of this route. But that's not all: you'll pass another panoramic route across Fiastra Lake, that will complete this wonderful and unforgettable ride!

Day 6

Cycling through the History

Fully step into the history of the Marche. Camerino, Urbisaglia, Tolentino and San Severino Marche are the towns that we'll pass during this ride. In addition, we will travel through natural beautiful places such as Abbadia di Fiastra,  Caccamo Lake and the narrow roads near the Potenza river!
