BIKE TOURING FRIULI VENEZIA REGION
Bike Touring in the Friuli Venezia Region offers some great riding for all levels of cyclist, mixed with the regions own unique flavors and rich history. The Friuli Venezia Region is very similar to the neighboring Veneto Region, offering flat, rolling hills, mid-mountain, and mountain routes. However, the Friuli Venezia Region is more rustic and has been overlooked for centuries as a cultural destination. This is a region of Italy that is still very authentic and off the beaten path and offers some great vacation options.
The most useful resource for touring cyclists is the brochure Friuli Venezia Giulia by Bike which describes the network of signposted routes. You can find these at some tourist offices but not all. The Italian version is also available on the web at pedalitalia.it.
