A great number of cycling-tourists from abroad consider Abruzzo a paradise for bicycle lovers, both urban cycling and mountain biking. In Abruzzo you can find itineraries that run along the sea-side, across the mild hills, steep climbings or onto the highest peaks which offer a splendid view over the landscape. For mountain biking lovers there are trails that go to the edge of “calanchi” (closed valleys with cliffs shaping the landscape) or to the river banks offering ever-changing emotions.
