A wonderful itinerary on an ideal terrain for mountain bikes. From Pescasseroli’s centre we will cross the beautiful beech woods of Macchiarvana and Camporotondo, until we reach the panoramic Santuario del Monte Tranquillo. Through short breaks, we will have the opportunity to listen to the sounds of the forest, to smell its scents, to look at the light and the shades of the colors that characterize it. With the e-MTB, climbing will be pleasant, and the landscape surrounding us will not take second place. It will not wear us out, so we will have more attention for the places we cross.
An e-bike is a way to deal with paths which normally would not be doable by everyone, and enjoy the road, the landscape and nature.
Appointment at our headquarter in Largo Molinari in Pescasseroli. Meeting with the guide, presentation of the programme and pickup of the gear. The route runs through the town centre and then brings us to the woods of La Difesa. In the course of the morning, we will cross different and fascinating environments and reach the altitude of 1597m a.s.l., where we find the Santuario di Monte Tranquillo, located in an evocative position, looking out over the valley of Pescasseroli. In a quick descent, we can go around the plains of Camporotondo and Macchiarvana, on a terrain which is ideal for mountain bikes. The return downhill will be in a ring route, which allows us to get back to the town centre at evening.
