The coast of Gargano is particularly suitable for a bike ride.
Wonderful are the ups and downs on the coast road from Peschici to Mattinata, the climbs towards Monte Sant’Angelo and the Umbra Forest, and there are also long straight paths such as the one between Calenella and the lakes of Lesina and Varano.
A cycling holiday may follow the Grande Circuito del Gargano, a rollercoaster for a total of 200 km and 3000 meters in altitude, with nothing to envy to the more famous Amalfi and Sorrento coast. The ring to the south, starting from the center of Vieste, follows the coast road that passes through Baia delle Zagare and the architiello of San Felice, real natural monuments.
The ring to the north, also starting from Vieste, crosses the trabucchi coast to Peschici and passes in the shadow of the Pineta Marzini, to become flat from San Menaio to Lido del Sole except for a short climb in the village of Rodi Garganico. The return uphill touches the villages of Ischitella and Vico del Gargano, where the hairpin bends for the Umbra Forest begin over 800 meters high. Final downhill along the Mandrione road surrounded by beech and oak trees. Guaranteed air conditioning effect due to the stunning, majestic trees.
