Liguria is made to be explored by bike. You can understand it just looking at any geographical map which reproduces the alternation of plains that touch the crystal clear sea and mountains immediately beyond it.
The cycling itineraries extend over 400 km; the lovers of the holiday on the pedals - whether cycling or mountain biking - come immediately across them on the Riviera di Levante, where the paths are more challenging and suitable to the experts, and on the Riviera di Ponente, where to try those suitable for the whole family.
The mild climate year-round, which allows you to face the narrow itineraries between the coast and the hills, between the houses of historical villages in the hinterland, makes Liguria an exceptional destination for cyclists of all levels that from La Spezia to Imperia are spoiled for choice.
Just to mention some possibilities to consider while planning a cycling holiday, you cannot miss the 24 kilometres of Area 24, an old railway track transformed into cycle tracks, or the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri that measures over 700 kilometres and is the best route for mountain biking and for more advanced cyclists, linking the two ends of the Ligurian Riviera.
Last but not least, there are kilometres of routes with services such as bike and luggage transport and evocative views between Albenga and Alassio and around the Cinque Terre. In short, it is not necessary to participate in the Milan-Sanremo to realize that Liguria is a region that loves cycling
