The proposed route runs through the hills between Umbertide, Gubbio and Perugia, entirely on the left bank of the Tiber river. It begins at S. Orfeto near the junction for Pietramelina, from where you head towards Parlesca.
The start of the route is at Resina, from where you take on the right for Valcaprara and then climb for 10 km on a very scenic road to Castiglione Aldobrando, which is rideable and only demanding in a few stretches, featuring an ascent of 600 metres.
The start point is the area of Punta Navaccia, from where you take the cycle path to Passignano.
Start at Passignano sul Trasimeno and head towards Perugia, approaching the lake, in the proximity of the jetty where the lake ferries to the Maggiore and Polvese islands moor.
Start at the lower part of Magione, at the junction for Castel Rigone, and take first the tarmac and then the long straight unsurfaced road that runs through La Goga..
The route begins near Mantignana from where you take the main road to Umbertide.
Monte Tezio has always represented an important natural leisure area for Perugia; a destination for easy walks or more demanding hikes, for asparagus or mushroom picking, for having a picnic and many other outdoor pursuits.
This route meanders between the river Tiber and the eastern slope of Mt. Tezio.
This route starts from Castiglione del Lago, opposite the entrance to the former military airport.
This is a long circle route around Lake Trasimeno, through the picturesque lakeside country and villages and along the coastline, for long stretches on a dedicated cycle path, but also on ordinary roads and tracks.
The route begins at the junction from Magione to Monte Melino-Montesperello. Head uphill towards Magione and continue towards the small panoramic village of Montecolognola; take the downhill road to Monte del Lago and turn left on a bridleway track, through olive groves, with scenic views of the lake, leading to the area of Montalcino.
The start point is Pian di Massiano di Perugia, where there are a large number of sports facilities, from where you climb up on tarmac towards Città della Domenica (an environmental theme park for children of over 40 hectares on Monte Pulito), heading towards the Capuchin convent of Monte Malbe, a veritable green lung for Perugia, and Corciano with its rolling hills covered by vast holm oak forests, passing near Villa di Monte Malbe and then through the ancient chestnut wood up to the convent.
The route starts at the “Didactic wood” of Ponte Felcino, just a few metres from the Tiber river. Take the road in the direction of Perugia – Ponte Rio and then turn right on the road that steeply climbs up towards Poggio Pelliccione, a rather demanding road without hairpin bends.
The large wooden bridge that crosses the Tiber at Ponte San Giovanni marks the starting-point of this route. Start off in the direction of Torgiano by riding through the village of Ferriera and then take the road that, after a few sharp bends, takes you along the ridge of the hill leading to Brufa.
The route starts in Mugnano and follows the indications for Fontignano. Ride in the direction of Poggio Montorio and then turn onto the bridle path on the left that crosses over the Montali ditch.
This is a long and charming route that winds through forests and touches upon sanctuaries, castles and medieval villages set in the southern hills of the Lake Trasimeno area.
Starting from Castiglione della Valle in the township of Marsciano, take off in the direction of Pietrafitta-Tavernelle and then turn left to ford the Nestore stream and then climb along a good bridle path through durmast woods and luxuriant olive groves.
Brief but fascinating route that explores a stretch of the Nestore stream between the villages of Castiglione della Valle and Mercatello, in the township of Marsciano.
We start from Deruta, the town whose celebrated ceramics have made its name a household word: just a few steps along any of its roads or town streets will show you how important a part the art of ceramics plays in the life of every citizen of Deruta.
South of Perugia, between the valley of the Tiber river and that of the Chiascio-Topino, the landscape features gently sloping hills almost entirely covered in woods, mostly consisting of Mediterranean maquis ever-greens, that extend down the slopes almost as far as the plains beneath.
The starting point is at Città della Pieve, a town of Etruscan-Roman origin on a hill 508 m. above sea-level overlooking the Valdichiana district and Lake Trasimeno, from the area of the S. Francesco church. Passing next to the S. Lucia monastery, ride towards Camparche along a pleasant and panoramic ridge road and then descend towards the Tre Molini district.
The route begins at the Pievaiola crossroads, beneath Piegaro, and travels towards Tavernelle.
The starting-point of this loop is opposite the Collicello junction, by the tall poplar tree before the little bridge, in the immediate vicinity of Abbazia dei Sette Frati..
This is certainly one of the loveliest and most satisfying of the proposed routes, above all because of the nature of the places it passes through, so unspoilt and wild they will surprise even the most demanding bikers.
The crystal-clear waters of the Fersinone stream, which springs from Mount Terracone (Frattaguida) at an altitude of just over 700 m. above sea-level, pass through unspoilt areas inaccessible even on foot..
Distance 36 km on level terrain
