This is varied and easy circuit around San Bernardino, on forest roads and past several lakes. You'll need good condition because the start is near the highest point of the tour, and the whole of the climb comes at the end!
The circular route starts in the village of S. Bernardino. The first section runs through an impressive landscape of marshes and hills with the idyllic small lake Lagh de Pian Doss, the historic houses of Forcola village, pastures and dense forests. Almost without realising it, you reach the lowest point of the tour, the village Pian S. Giacomo at 1200 m above sea level. A long upward slope leads back to S. Bernardino. Along this unpaved road you will find a bridge from Roman times, the Ponte Romano, which is worth a short detour from the bike route. Once you have reached the Isola Reservoir, the road climbs much more gently. Between the lake and the village of San Bernardino is the Bosch de San Remo forest, which enjoys state protection. After a few minutes you reach the finish point, right where you started off in the village.
