Gravel to conquer the Euganean Hills

COLLI EUGANEI - PADUA

Gravel to conquer the Euganean Hills

€250 per person

A weekend of full immersion in the Euganean Hills, beautiful in the bloom of spring as well as in autumn, in foliage. Two excursions on the pedals in a crescendo of intensity!

The union of gravel to the Euganean Hills was an inevitable process, because here you can find the pleasure of cycling, many things to see, ideal routes, and typical products to discover. Thanks to gravel, some concepts of traveling by bike have changed; more than a means of transportation, it has become a philosophy of life, allowing you to combine the pleasure of doing sports with the possibility of enjoying the territory as well as tasting the products it offers.

Day 1
Meeting at the hotel in the early morning, a quick briefing, and off we go! We set off on a relatively easy tour that will introduce us to the Euganean Hills Regional Park. Thanks to this first tour we become familiar with the area and some slight climbs. We will take a first tour of about 60 km along bike paths that pass through walled towns, monuments, Renaissance villas and castles and thousand-year-old abbeys. We return to the hotel for a bit of relaxation before dinner. Approximately 60 km 150 meters D+

Day 2
We set off on a completely different gravel tour. Today we will begin to climb along the little white roads and dirt tracks of the many hills that make up the Euganean Hills “archipelago”. The tour is definitely more challenging and rewarding than yesterday's; it develops an elevation gain of more than 1,000 meters and will give us enchanting views. Arquà Petrarca, a beautifully preserved ancient medieval village, will be our most prestigious half of the day, in addition to the many naturalistic landscapes that will accompany us throughout the tour. In the late afternoon we return to the hotel to conclude this exciting weekend! About 60 km 1000 D+ spread over the day should be doable, obviously training is needed!   N.B. possibility to request an additional overnight stay before or at the end of the 2-day weekend.
