We shall then go down roads of breccia with steep slopes through woods and hills displaying a wide range of new and different colours depending on the season. Finally, we will get to the asphalt road winding through the Furlo Gorge. By cycling at the level of the dam reservoir we will enjoy unique views created by the rocky walls forming the Furlo Gorge.Going through the ancient Roman tunnel will make us realize how important these sites were and still are.This way we shall return to the starting point which marks the end of the tour.
THE STATE NATURE RESERVE OF THE FURLO GORGE.
The Candigliano river, with its flow, has cut the rock away thus creating the deep Furlo gorge.
Today, the river divides Monte Paganuccio from Monte Pietralata. The Furlo Gorge, Monte Paganuccio and Monte Pietralata form the State Nature Reserve of the Furlo Gorge.
Our bike tour suggestions will offer us the opportunity to discover these three areas where the golden eagle has nested and hunted for ages.
The nature reserve is home to many animal species, too: horses bred in the wild, fawns, roe deer, boars, several breeds of birds of prey and birds in general. The whole is surrounded by woods rich of beautiful blossoms of 1000 colours.
Every season is the right one to visit these mountains and anyone can easily reach the top of them if E-bikes are used.
You don’t need to be an athlete to do that; the only thing you have to do is to ride your E-bike and be willing to make new esperiences.
