An easy and flat cycle road takes you from Agriturismo il Cavicchio to the town of Rastignano and back, all along the river Savena, for a total of 4 kilometers. Small paved roads twist and turn along the valleys and the Apennine ridges (the mythical SS65, Strada Nazionale della Futa, the Zena valley, the Porrettana National Road…) gravel roads, mule tracks, single tracks, demanding downhills, will take you amidst woods and grain fields, vineyards and badlands, sandstone cliffs and rock hamlets.
Many are the chances of training and keeping fit while at Il Cavicchio: as an example, what’s about a tonifying hike? Leaving agriturismo il Cavicchio by foot, you must not miss trails winding along the hills, even more so if you practise Nordic Walking, (pole walking, the Finnish “Sauvakävely”). Of course, we will provide you with all the maps you need and we will inform you about weather forecasts before you set off.
A beautiful and varied walk starts directly from the farm. Through our fields and our forest, you can reach the ravine of Malpasso River and continuing along the ridge you arrive to Sabbiuno memorial, on the summit between the valleys of the Savena and the Rhine. If you want to devote yourself to trekking, we would suggest you the trails of Parco dei Gessi e dei Calanchi dell’Abbadessa and the “Flaminia Militaris”, a 2200 years old Roman road. Don’t miss the 5 Bolognese Valleys Crossing, and the Natural Reserve of Pliocenic Counterfort. If you wish to have a close encounter with History and Nature, explore the Historical Park of Monte Sole.
Along the river, the bike path to Rastignano is ideal for running enthusiasts and joggers.
