The meeting point of the tour is our agency, BikeinBO, set at a short walk from Bologna train station. We'll soon head for Porta Castiglione, where we’ll start pedaling uphill across different parks like Giardini Margherita, the most popular park in Bologna, Parco di Villa Ghigi and then Parco Cavaioni. From this height, among vineyards, olive trees and woods, you will have the first chance to observe Bologna from above, as well as the Padana plain and the Reno river valley. Upon request, it’s possible to organize a refreshment stop in the park.
The most trained and experienced of you at this point can take a challenging dirt road that crosses Talon Park and its famous sluice, Chiusa di Casalecchio di Reno, or choose the easier way back through Via di Casaglia. At the end of the tour, if some time is left we can also ride up to the Sanctuary of San Luca, set on the Guardia hill.
