An adventure without any type of support, on a mountain bike, up and down the hills of Romagna all the way to the Adriatic sea. The Romagna Bike Trail has two routes to allow people to plan at best their trail accordingly their available time and physical condition: the first route is about 600 km long with a difference in altitude of about 12.000 D+

“This is the land of Verdi’s novels and Giovanni Pascoli’s poetry, as well as Fellini’s unmistakable cinema - a director who became a legend through his many masterpieces that come to life in this, his native region”


The second route will be about350 km long with a difference in altitude of about 6.500 D+. The route presents different types of road surface: participants will face tarmac, dirt roads, cycle lanes, forest paths.

Emilia Romagna lies between the River Po to its north and the Apennine Mountains (to its south). It is one of the most fertile and productive regions of Italy, thanks to the mitigating effect that the Adriatic Sea has on the coastal climate. The diversity between the mountains and sea offers visitors to Emilia Romagna breathtaking views, in addition to beauty for both the eyes and spirit, with a mixture of the earthy colors, the aromas and the fresh sea air.

If you were scared by all the hundreds of participants at other events of ours we were reporting about recently, this might be your thing. With an amount around +30 participant theRomagna Bike Trail is rather an informal event among like-minded – you definitely won’t leave the event without great chats you had, and probably without making new friends.

It is taking place in one of the most beautiful regions of Italy – the Emilia Romagna. Based around known cities like Bologna, Parma, Modena, Ferrara and the Adriatic sea the Emilia Romagna is not only known for their incredible food, or their famous cars and motobikes (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Ducati) – it’s mostly its diverse landscapes from the sea to the mountainous Apennines that attracts cyclist to ride this region north of Europe’s smallest microstate “San Marino”. You can ride it the elf-supported bikepacking way, but you can also plan your trip from a nice beautiful accommodation to another – the organisor is providing ideal locations therefore! That way the Romagna Bike Trail is worth a trip whatever your preferred “style” might be.

Anyway, if you are looking to combine a short holiday with a great cycling event: think about to participate! If you have any questions drop Mirko, Marko and Mirko an email to info@romagnabiketrail.it – they are very happy to help and give advices to guarantee an exceptional trip, so you won’t ever forget that area after riding the Emilia Romagna.
