indicates the total length of the route from the starting to the arrival point.


indicates the time needed to complete the route considered an average (in motion) of about 10 km per hour for the mtb routes and 20 km per hour for the road bicycle routes, as well as a tolerance depending on the type of the path.

Elevation gain uphill

this is not the difference between the highest and lowest points reached during the journey, but the elevation gain uphill.
This is the sum of all altitude differences from the point of departure to the point of arrival. In other words, the greater the elevation gain uphill in height and the greater the number of climbs that must be faced, then the path will be harder.


Difficulty is always a very subjective parameter. We tried to give an assessment that considers a level of intermediate training and a good propensity to ride on dirt roads or long climbs sometimes challenging.

Starting from San Vivaldo, from the parking lot of the "Jerusalem of Tuscany" we climbs up on asphalt road "Via Ecce Homo". After just over 1 km, take the path on the right. From here, passing through "Pian delle Querce" we go down in single trail until we get to the village of "Iano" and we turn right onto a paved road. After about 100 meters, we take the path on the left following the signs for the small cemetery of "Iano".
From here, following the path - all on dirt road - we will reach the valley and then we climb up to "Vignale" and go down again in the opposite valley. We will then go up until we reach the asphalt road that will take us to "Castelfalfi". After visiting this ancient medieval village with its castle and the splendid Church of San Floriano, the route continues to take us into the valley of the "Carfalo" stream. Passing next to the lake of "Tonda" we will climb up to the homonymous and characteristic village of "Tonda". Continuing to ride on the ridges of these hills, we reach "Castellare" and take "Via Cerroni". From here, if we still have breath and energy, before returning to San Vivaldo we can ride the single trails of the "Corbezzolaio" wood.
