Each route has a precise ultimate objective, which may be a scenic spot, a famous building, a natural phenomenon, a village, or a historic city, but then again, it may be some magnificent gastronomic delight, a special wine, an exquisite sweet, or simply the pleasure of stopping off at a trattoria that offers genuine food at reasonable prices, in a family atmosphere.
One of the great itineraries is the Grande Anello dei Sibillini, which can be covered on a mountain bike in five or six days.
