THE PEARL OF MONTEFELTRO
DIFFICULT KM 91 - 5 HOURS
Riccione - M. Fiore - Urbino - Tavullia - Riccione
A beautiful hilly ride that, in the middle of the route, which touches Urbino is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. The trip includes three climbs to tackle, a pair of runs not bad, and therefore we can consider some difficulty. From Riccione go to Morciano we face here in the climb to Montefiore, which announces village from a distance with the vision of its mighty fortress Malatestiana. It goes beyond Tavoleto and after Cą Gallo climb towards Urbino, where of course we recommend a fine stop. We are in a beautiful city surrounded by walls and ramparts, which has kept intact its characteristics Renaissance. Roads, houses, squares and churches do wonderful Palazzo Ducale (fifteenth century), which look from different angles to appreciate its magnificence, elegance, power. And what about the view from above, from the Fortress dell'Albornoz? Go up in a bike and stop to watch, let's say, everywhere. It is an experience they will never forget. For the return descend on Montecchio in here up until hilltop on which stretches Tavullia and then a dive on St. Giovanni in Marignano. In the last km for Cattolica and then to Riccione you pull your breath at the end of a cycle that we have done calmly. As you can see on a map, the first climb is 10 km from the start and the last is 20 km. from arrival. And we need calm, even, to enjoy all the environmental and artistic beauty of this beautiful tour.
