Enduro – The alternative Perugia Vecchia route

Enduro – The alternative Perugia Vecchia route

This route follows a major part of the ‘Perugia Vecchia’ (Old Perugia) route but extending it to 25 km with a total altitude increase of 900 metres; we consider it perfect even for ‘old-school’ enduro riders as it lends itself well to spending entire days in the saddle without the urge to keep climbing back up. The stretch is suitable for anyone with average fitness and experience and for those who want to calmly enjoy the area’s beautiful landscape at the foot of Perugia. On tackling the first uphill stretch on the first hill, you’ll be able to enjoy the landscape of Bettona, one of Umbria’s most characteristic villages, while once at the top you go down through the woods, towards the areas of Pontenuovo and Torgiano overlooking the Tiber valley and Perugia. The dense paths of all levels – which are typical of this circuit – provide exciting opportunities to all riders, from the most expert to the newbie. Our staff will accompany you on this route, which is one of the most popular for enduro bikers in the area.
