Bicycle touring in Val di Cecina

Bicycle touring in Val di Cecina

Val di Cecina is an ideal area to be explored by bike. The mild climate and the great variety of itineraries, both seafront and hills, are the most appreciated characteristics by the cyclists of the area. You cycle mostly on low-traffic country roads where you are free to fully appreciate the surrounding nature. However there are trails that are developed on dirt roads, especially on the local hills overlooking the sea. The proximity between the hinterland and the coast is perfect even for cyclists who want to train at the same time on climbs, descents and straights in a single itinerary. Paolo Bettini, a sportsman from Bibbona and an Olympic road cycling champion, also trained on these same routes.
Bicycle touring in Val di Cecina is an activity suitable for the whole family and for every period of the year. Each season offers different views and colors, but always very suggestive.
The propensity of the territory to tourism by bicycle and to sport by bicycle is also evidenced by the many dedicated events. In May each year, the Granfondo di Montain Bike «Costa degli Etruschi» is held in Cecina. The competition attracts hundreds of fans from all over Italy.
The path to be tackled is always different (classic — marathon — touring), requires attention, technique and training. At the same time it is an unmissable opportunity to visit the Val di Cecina.
