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.
