Cross Country easy course. Low physical effort and easy ride. The routes are well maintained and present no technical difficulties. You can come with us with cross country bike full or front.

The Gothic Line (German: Gotenstellung; Italian: Linea Gotica) formed Field Marshal Albert Kesselring's last major line of defence in the final stages of World War II along the summits of the Apennines during the fighting retreat of German forces in Italy against the Allied Armies in Italy commanded by General Sir Harold Alexander.
Adolf Hitler had concerns about the state of preparation of the Gothic Line: He feared the Allies would use amphibious landings to out-flank its defenses. So, to downgrade its importance in the eyes of both friend and foe, he ordered the name, with its historic connotations, changed, reasoning that if the Allies managed to break through they would not be able to use the more impressive name to magnify their victory claims. In response to this order, Kesselring renamed it the "Green Line" (Grüne Linie) in June 1944.

This tour retracks the path of the Partisans from Passo del Giogo to the Capanna Marconi and Fontefredda. Aside from the hystoric sites, the views on the vallyes (Mugello and Firenzuola) are marvelous. The course does not presents technical difficulties, the climbs and the descents are gently to deal with all-level cross country bikes. Woods and trees accompany us in the jouney and with a little luck, we can see deers, foxes, and hawks.

Based on the level of our guests, we can also do a variant to the path to discover a very nice single track and to climb a bit to have one of the most spectacular view on the valley.
