Bike lovers, this is your time to shine!
Don’t miss the chance to practise your favourite sport surrounded by pristine nature in a gently undulating landscape of hills and valleys full of historical and architectural gems.
We already talked about the Regional parks (suitable for the whole family) and 4 best cycling routes in Romagna between nature and culture, so today we will tell you about the Cycle Paths of the Parks, 10 cycling routes from the province of Piacenza to Romagna within 9 regional parks and a nature reserve.

  • Gessi Bolognesi Park | Ph paPisc via Flickr
  • Monteveglio Abbey Park
  • Roccamalatina park
  • Stirone park | Ph parchidelducato
  • Sunset on Taro River | Ph. parchidelducato
  • Trebbia River | Ph R.Ziliani, parchidelducato
  • Vena del gesso Park | Ph. brisighellaospitale

These cycling paths are suitable for everyone (even beginners) since the paths have different levels of difficulty and can be cycled in 1-day or half-day stages.

To choose the path that best suit your skills, have a look at the technical sheet of the cycling path (which includes information on the length, gradient, level of difficulty, travel times, cultural and environmental destinations, useful contact details) and at the map with GPS directions, to reach the site and follow the direction signs.

If you are environmentally conscious, remember that these routes can also be reached by train.
At the nearest train station, specific signage will show you how to easily reach the protected area and the cycling path.

Further information is also available free of charge at the visitor centres in the area:
– The “Ciclovie dei Parchi leaflet;
The “Ciclovie dei Parchi” roadmap.

    Would you please supply me with information about renting bicycles for these trips. I will be travelling from overseas so will not be able to bring my own bike. I do a lot of mountain and track cycling so am not interested in a commuter style bike.
    Thank you

      Your question is hard to answer. Which cycle path do you will intend to ride? Emilia-Romagna is big
