Abruzzi mountains weekend
An intense ride in the
mountains east of Rome in the region of Abruzzi. A less well known part of
Italy but of stunning beauty with 3 very important National parks to testify
We base our selves in
Sulmona, a real gem of a town right in the middle of these 3 National parks
at 170km worth of twisties from Rome.
Arrive Friday morning
and get ready to ride by 2pm. We hit the twisties just outside of Rome and
head to the mountains the easy way.
On Saturday we
have our biggest day. We take on two of the 3 national parks, The national
park of Abruzzi and ride the Sagittarius gorges and then circum-ride the
Majella massif enjoying spectacular views and enjoy great riding
On Sunday we head
to "Big Rock", the Gran Sasso mountain. We climb up to 2100
meters and enjoy the beautiful mountains of the Laga. We will also have
BBQ in the Gran Sasso plain. A few clever butchers come to sell their
meats and have set up ready to grill BBQs. Just park up buy the meat
and cook it!
On Monday we
return back to Rome on the SS5 Via Tiburtina with a short excursion by the
Turano lake. We shall be back at the latest by 3pm.
