From 14 to 15 September from Laiguieglia to Ormea in e-bike riding along the ancient streets, accompanied by mtb guides, support staff – dinner and overnight stay included. September 15th, return.
Cycling in Laigueglia is now at home, while we are already beginning to think about the 57th edition of the Laigueglia Trophy scheduled for February with other initiatives concerning the two wheels. Here is the birth of “Laigueglia Ebike Experience”, an asd aimed at promoting the territory that offers the Tour of the Saracen Towers on September 14th and 15th. The idea of those who dream of a usable and shared territory is to be able to create an itinerary to be covered in assisted mtb that can cross the Ligurian Alps from the sea of Laigueglia up to Colle di Caprauna at over 1300 meters of altitude. To do this the Tour of the Saracen Towers is born, which takes its name from one of those elements that this territory offers visitors; in fact in Laigueglia the predominant symbol is the ‘Bastione’ near the pier and in Ormea a Saracen Tower dominates the town.
The itinerary includes sections of asphalt road transfer for about 15 km, about 35 km of secondary asphalted roads and about 85 km of dirt roads, mule tracks and paths.
Altogether the route is km. 145 approximately divided equally over the two days with a total height difference of m. 3978 and a maximum absolute altitude to be reached of m. 1376 of the Colle di Caprauna. The ride allows you not only to admire the fabulous views that the landscape also offers to rewind a bit of local history starting from the Roman era of the historic center and the Via Julia Augusta of Albenga also of the perfectly preserved Roman bridge of Borghetto d ‘Arroscia.
Of the Saracen towers of Laigueglia and Ormea and of that of Vendone as well as the Castle of Aquila passing through a stretch of Alta Via dei Monti Liguri. It starts, Saturday, September 14, from the “Muretto dei Ciclisti” of Laigueglia, a place that collects the signatures of the greatest champions of the 2 wheels that have cycled through our streets, to begin this ride that will make us meet the most beautiful places and the most delicious foods tasty in the Ligurian Alps area.
After crossing the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, it crosses into Piedmont, the overnight stay, in fact, is scheduled in Ormea. Sunday we return to the sea and the arrival is always fixed in Laigueglia by the “Muretto dei Ciclisti”.
