-Preparation for trip-
Departing from our bike shop near the colosseum, we provide participants with a trekking bicycle or hybrid bicycle suitable for the terrain. Equipped with a carrier bag for small objects like cellphone, camera, sweater etc. E-bikes available upon request.
-The Route/ Trail –
Considering that the bike lane that runs alongside the tiber river is only partially complete, some local cyclist activists have actually taken it upon themselves to clear the way to the sea.
Thanks to this action, we can now reach the med without having to cycle on the roads: Pass under bridges, cycle through fields and between trails, snaking the whole way downhill to the sea.
– Ostia Antica –
Just before reaching the sea, we arrive at the archaeological site of Ostia Antica. Here we will lock up the bikes and head on foot into this park where we will be taken of a guided visit of Romes ancient port and the life of the city that surrounded it. Immagine shop lined streets and merchant traders, as well as one of the oldest sites of jewish settlement.
– Fiumicino & Lunch –
After having returned to the bikes, we cycle the last few kilometres ( a total of 35kms) on a final stretch of asphalted bike lane that runs through the town of Fiumicino to where we will have lunch overlooking the sea.
– Return to Rome –
At this point in the early afternoon, we head to the nearby train station fro a 40 minute train ride back to rome.
