It has a bike parking area with a video surveillance system and an internal workshop. Departing from this hotel, we can enjoy ascents for all levels, from the gentle and intoxicating curves to Longiano and Verrucchio to the hairpin bends that lead to the top of Sogliano, without forgetting Nove Colli, the medieval castles of Montefiore Conca and San Leo or Carpegna. And if we opt for a more urban route, nothing like getting to know Rimini or Santarcangelo by bicycle.

4. Il Ciocco Spa

Il Ciocco Spa Pump Track

The town of Barga, in Lucca, is home to the Il Ciocco Spa, a pioneer of the Italian resort concept. Neither more nor less than 600 km of natural park, with 42 km of trails and cycle paths in the forest, surrounded by greenery and with privileged views of the mountainous Serchio valley. But if that’s not enough, there’s a Pump Track at the same resort, with a 200-m run to enjoy whether you’re an expert or a beginner. A highly recommended option for those looking for Cross Country, Enduro, Downhill or pure MTB adventures.
