Le Marche & Umbria

DESCRIPTION

Both Le Marche and Umbria possess large shares of the Appennini mountain range, from the awe inspiring Sibillini mountains and Piano Grande in the southern parts to Monte Carpegna further north.

Perugia, famous for chocolate and jazz also makes an excellent base for some fantastic loop rides in Umbria, with historical Assisi close by. More centrally, Monte Catria, Monte Petrano and Nerrone tower high above Cantiano and Cagli, offering some tough climbing. Pantani’s Monte Carpegna is located further north, and conquering Cippo Carpegna on two wheels is a fitting homage to pay the legendary ‘Il Pirata’.

The GF Nove Colli ‘percorso’  lies just over the border in Emiglia-Romagna. Gubbio, Umbria and Urbino, Le Marche are fine examples of medieval cittadelles, with the history of feuding contrade making for colourful traditional costume and coats-of-arms during festival days.
