“GRANFONDO CICLOTURISTICA DEL MUGELLO“  becomes “ Permanent route”

MapThe “GRANFONDO CICLOTURISTA DEL MUGELLO – permanent route” (GFM) is part of a larger project called “Mugello in Bike”, which is presently being renewed. Along with the creation of a longer route, the new GFM includes a smartphone app to register your achievements.

The permanent GFM route runs along the classical Granfondo, which takes place every year in Mugello on the last Sunday in June.

The idea of creating and offering the GFM route came from the organizers of the event― the ASD Mugello Toscana Bike in collaboration with  the Unione Montana dei Comuni del Mugello―whose intent it was to offer a permanent route that could be run in complete autonomy, at any moment of the year, in one or two days, with stops along the way where you can savour local cuisine, enjoy the landscape and also everything else this splendid territory has to offer.

The route is 120 k long, has a difference in altitude of about 2300 metres, and is in stages. At the starting and finishing point, as well as at other “check” points along the way, the “travel card” (carta di viaggio), which each cyclist receives after registration, must be stamped.

At the finish, along with the stamp, the cyclist will receive a symbolic prize to remember their GFM experience by.

The cyclist can decide to undertake this wonderful experience on any day of the year; they must, however, bear in mind that in autumn and winter the parts of the route that stretch at over 1000 metres above sea level may sometimes present harsh weather conditions and limited visibility. There are rest stops along the entire route that offer food and accommodations for cyclists who wish to travel the route in more than one day.

The starting point is in the municipality of Scarperia and San Piero a Sieve, in the valley: here the 1st stamp will be applied to the card; from here the route coasts Lake Bilancino and climbs towards the Futa Pass. The 2nd check point is at Monte di Fò. The route next descends towards Firenzuola, 3rd check point, and moves in the direction of  Palazzuolo sul Senio, 4th check point. The route now crosses the Paretaio and Sambuca mountain passes, where they can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Romagna plain: on clear days, you can see as far as the Adriatic sea. From here the route descends towards Borgo San Lorenzo and Scarperia again.

To participate, cyclists must sign up by filling out the following registration at page…

Please take note that the route travels along roads that are open to traffic, and, therefore, the rules of the road must be respected at all times: the Unione Montana dei Comuni del Mugello and the ASD Mugello Toscana Bike cannot be held in any way accountable for accidents or damage to people or things along the route.

Assistance, rescue of people or bikes along the route, is not made available by the organizers.
