Enduro – Perugia Vecchia

Back to the exploration

Enduro – Perugia Vecchia

The mecca of Umbrian enduro, and a must for all enduro mountain bikers

This route, called ‘Perugia Vecchia’ (Old Perugia) by local riders and measuring 13 km in length with a total altitude increase of 650 metres, is considered the ‘mecca’ of Umbria’s enduro bikers, for its proximity to the city of Perugia and its cultural and architectural beauty, as well as for its natural features that make it the perfect place for mountain biking even in winter and in wet conditions. The trail surface is made up of porous rock with high abrasive properties, so the area is perfectly suited to use in all weather conditions. Typical Mediterranean vegetation overlooks the villages of Pontenuovo, Torgiano and Deruta, presenting riders with a dense maze of paths where the options for downhill biking are endless. You’ll get the chance to discover the dense woods that make this area, despite its proximity to the capital, ideal for extreme cycling. This activity requires above-average training and is therefore only recommended for more experienced enduro bikers.
