Road type: gravel road on the dismantled railway line 100%
A wonderful MTB ride in the green heart of Umbria, on the route of the old railway line that linked the towns in Val Nerina with the ones in Val Spoletana, passing through forests, fields, breathtaking landscapes, tunnels and incredible views.
This route was recently awarded as the most beautiful cycling route in Italy, at Cosmo Bike Show 2015. The path that goes from Spoleto to Norcia, in fact, was drawn on the rails of the so-called “Gottardo Umbro”, a dismantled mountain railway with outstanding overviews, and goes along trails and gravel roads with unexpected tunnels with elicoidal ramps and bridges suspended upon hidden valleys.
