The Gran Fondo Campagnolo Roma has a length of 120 Kms / 75 miles with an altitude of 2,000 m / 6,560 ft elevation. For well trained riders. Certainly challenging and suitable for those with well trained legs and lungs. For this reason, to make it even more attractive to those who see the bike a means to compete (with others or themselves), the routes are varied and difficult. The route within Rome: Fori Imperiali, Piazza Venezia, Piazza Argentina, Corso Rinascimento, S. Andrea della Valle, via Tomacelli, Largo Goldoni, Via del Corso, Piazza del Popolo, LungoTevere to Via di Porta San Sebastiano. Then, once out of town in the direction of the Castles immortalized by centuries of stories, poems, songs and movies. Ancient villages, evocative, steeped in history and immersed in enchanted landscapes.
