DATES: from May 14th to May 16th; from 18 June to 20 June; from 2nd July to 4th July. Via Vandelli is an ancient road that connects Modena to Massa, fully crossing the Modenese, Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and the Apuan Alps. Historically used for the transport of goods and the passage of troops, today it is a splendid route for all lovers of cycle tourism and walks in the midst of nature. With the e-bike tours on Via Vandelli you will immerse yourself in a wonderful naturalistic environment, made up of mountains, hills, villages, beautiful landscapes and lush vegetation. An expert and certified Stray Dogs guide will accompany you to discover the most evocative places, for an excursion to be enjoyed in complete tranquility.
The pedal assisted bikes, which relieve fatigue, are the right compromise to make everyone enjoy the joy and relaxation of a ride on two wheels, regardless of the level of training, without forgetting the benefits of a half day of physical activity at the open air.
Walk along a stretch of the Vandelli with the Stray Dogs guides and if you don't have a bike, we'll take care of the rental!
