  • Italian Bike Routes

    Italy has more than 12000 Kms (7500 mi) of bike trails and routes. This link gives you the idea of where the major routes are. Many more are at the local level. As you can see from the map (click to enlarge), many routes have their own names and many more are built or dedicated as the whole network becomes more organized. Caution: sometimes these are dedicated bike routes and sometimes they conflic with local vehicular traffic. Because of the intensity and high volume of this traffic, it can be very dangerous for those who are not used to it and every biker should pay special attention and use common sense.
