Description

A bike tour dedicated to cycling lovers with a good level of training. The routes are proposed and traced by our expert bike guides and can be modified according to the type of bike, so MTB, road bike, gravel or e-bike for the less experienced.

The tour starts from Gemona, a village nestled on the slopes of the Julian Prealps; it is one of the most enchanting historical towns in Friuli Venezia Giulia and its medieval center boasts precious treasures.

The town, known worldwide as the center of the earthquake that struck Friuli in 1976, is today one of the main symbols of the rebirth of the region, and it is an example and model of “successful reconstruction”.
