Cycling is a passion for a lot of people in this area, either on a mountain bike in the Sibillinis or on the road heading for the coast. We even have our own fearless, Australian downhill racer who competes with the Smile Bike Team from Potenza Picena near Macerata in the Gravity Cup and other competitions.
The Amandola Bici (Bike) Club heads off for a ride every Sunday about 9am from Bar Stazione. They welcome anyone who would like to join them for the ride. Franco Copponi, owner of the Conad Supermarket and mountain biker extrordinaire would happily have you join him on a ride in the Sibillinis - if you are fit enough, of course!
If you are over this way and want to cycle but don't have a bike, there are a number of places to rent either a mountain bike (Agricamp Picobello at Montelparo) or a road bike (contact Pauline via email email@example.com or phone (39)0736 848664).
As you can see from the photo, the passion for cycling is not new to the Amandolese!
