I really enjoyed this route, which alternates between climbs with two gradients and others that are steady and soft where you can chat.
I was lucky enough to be able to do this ride on a midweek day in April with very little traffic.

There are a few technical difficulties from km 95 onwards: the route involves taking a flight of steps to descend to the bridge over the river and then another to climb back up (which I think could be avoided by choosing a slightly different route), and some of the last roads and climbs were impassable due to a large number of road works and construction sites (April 2024)m so we had to improvise the last part a little.

Ho apprezzato moltissimo questo percorso che alterna salite dalle due pendenze ad altre costanti e morbide nelle quali è possibile chiacchierare.
Ho avuto la fortuna di poter fare questa pedalata in un giorno infrasettimanale di aprile con davvero pochissimo traffico.

Un po' di difficoltà tecniche dal km 95 in avanti: il percorso prevede di dover fare una scalinata per scendere al ponte sul fiume e poi un'altra per risalire (che credo sarebbe evitabile scegliendo una strada leggermente differente), inoltre alcune delle ultime strade e salite erano impraticabili a causa di tantissimi lavori e cantieri stradali (aprile 2024)m quindi abbiamo dovuto improvvisare un po' l'ultima parte.
