Tour of Cartizze
Distance: 21 km
Elevation: 600 m
A lovely trip on the hills of Prosecco. It is ideal during spring time: you can visit excellent cellars and, why not, take a glass of good wine!
Among the great number of restaurants, agritourismi and trattorias, there is the famous “Osteria senza oste” with an amazing view of the hills and the vineyards of Guia and surroundings.
Starting from San Giovanni, we will take minor and dirt roads, and we will arrive at the small church of San Giacomo. After riding ups and downs, we will arrive at Saccol, where the street rises to reach the ridge of Croset hill.
After enjoing this breath-taking view, another climb is waiting for us: but don’t worry, thanks to the e-Bike it will be effortless and exciting. The ridgeway ends at Mont Street, which lead us at the “Osteria senza oste”: here we will taste excellent food and we will enjoy an amazing view. After launch? We will leave towards Santo Stefano: the climb will lead us to the cemetery of this little town.
As we enjoy the wonderful landscape, we will reach easily an elevation of 430m. After every climb, there is always a descent: here is where our descent starts. We will ride down through the village of Guietta and then we will take a lovely route that continues among the vineyards.
At 300 meters of altitude, we will start descending to 255m, leaving the main street. We will arrive at Le Fosse and at this point we will take crossroads to reach Ponte Raboso. We will ride for 200m of asphalt that ends up with a dirt road going up to the ridgeway of Col.
The last up and down portion of this route starts in the main street of Guia, where a small descent leads us to the last brief climb up to the church of St Giacomo of Guia.
