CYCLE-PEDESTRIAN TRACK OF THE PONENTE LIGURE
A pochi metri da Terramata resort si trova la pista ciclo-pedonale più lunga d’Europa (24 km) dal panorama mozzafiato.
A few meters from Terramata resort is the longest cycle-pedestrian path in Europe (24 km) with a breathtaking view.
The Cycle Path of the Coastal Park “Riviera dei Fiori” (initially also called “Coastal Park of Ponente Ligure”) is one of the longest in Europe, a total of 24 km long, with a path that can be used by pedestrians and cyclists in both directions march.
Advertised as “The Cycling Riviera” abroad and in the signs present in the municipalities it crosses, the cycle path was born on the former single-track coastal path of the old Genoa-Ventimiglia railway line, in the stretch between Ospedaletti and San Lorenzo al Mare, decommissioned in 2001 and moved upstream for doubling.
The cycle path is completely asphalted, equipped with horizontal and vertical signs, a surveillance system and an emergency call. The railway tunnels have been recovered and equipped with lighting. Two bike lanes have been created alongside one lane for pedestrians. In some open spaces, panoramic rest points have been created, while some stations and old connected buildings have been converted into refreshment points.
Spending a cycling holiday on the cycle path is facilitated by the possibility of accessing it in several points, generally about every 400 meters, with the possibility of using parking spaces in the places crossed. There are also rental gazebos directly on the track that allow you to rent a bike by the hour, half or full day at very affordable rates.
