A sport suitable for all ages, which involves children from a very young age and accompanies them both at an amateur and a competitive level. Cycling is effort and sweat that can be shared with our fellow adventurers while going up a hill side by side, but also a sport that helps us believe in ourselves, when, pedaling in the middle of nowhere, alone, we realize we can do it with our own strength, since we know we can count on nothing but our legs.

Cycling in Lazio has thousands of fans and, especially on weekends, it is not difficult to understand it! The most beautiful roads in the region are populated by lovers of this sport, many on the less busy hills and mountains one, just like the roads that surround the Rieti valleys.


Not only amateurs, but also professionals populate the streets of Rieti and its province. In fact, every year more and more participants are taking part in the most important cycling races taking place in our area: 

Terminillo Marathon, a cycling race that takes place around Mount Terminillo, pedaling on very scenic mountain roads that offer breathtaking views. Routes of different lengths and difficulties, with ascents up to 1800 meters, and the uphill finish line makes this race one of the most characteristic of Central Italy.
