Sport cycling tour on Mountain bike up to 15 people.

A mountain bike excursion to discover the Conca d’Oro, crossing the Parco della Favorita and the Grotta Conza integral nature reserve. Evocative scenarios that will alternate splendid views of the Gulf of Palermo and Carini through the dirt paths that cross the Mediterranean scrub present in the area of ​​Pizzo Manolfo and Raffo Rosso. After the start, leaving the city, we will cross the Parco della Favorita, the green lung of the city, on the official cyclocross route that winds through the woods and which will allow you to make stops at the Niscemi Grotto and at the Royal Stables. Descent along the Landolina dirt path, which runs along the southern slopes of Monte Pallegrino, from which you can enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf of Mondello. Continuation on the asphalted road in the direction of Tommaso Natale to enter the Grotta Conza Integral Nature Reserve and begin the ascent towards Pizzo Manolfo: the gaze will sweep over the harsh and characteristic landscape of the Palermo mountains – modified at times by the centuries-old work of man – in which the limestone rocks take on a variegated color from gray to pink and rust. On request it will be possible to visit the Conza Grotto, at the foot of a vertical wall surrounded by ash and carob trees. At the end of the ascent, refreshment stop at the characteristic “Zu Caliddu” restaurant to taste a typical dish of Palermo street food. We will return to the asphalted provincial road which, with a gentle descent, will take us to Palermo, offering glimpses of the city and Monte Pellegrino. Return to Palermo and end of our services.
