Vieste by Mountain Bike

Vieste and the Gargano can reserve many surprises for lovers of MTB.
Renowned for its sandy beaches and beautiful old town, the Vieste area is ideal for those who want to practice sports immersed in nature, with its varied landscape of woods, olive groves, dirt paths and verdant rocky coasts overlooking the sea.
Although the routes are numerous and embrace the entire Gargano area, one of the best areas to explore by bike it is that of the hinterland north of Vieste, where slowly leaving the coast, we find flat stretches immersed in the green of the olive groves, before entering the Umbra Forest.
The Umbra Forest it is a huge green lung of 10.000 hectares between beech and yew trees, a real paradise of biodiversity and there are numerous paths that allow you to practice trekking or mountain biking.
The heart of the Forest, where we find the suggestive artificial lake and a refreshment point, is about 20 km from Vieste and has a drop of about 800 meters.
Other noteworthy routes are the one that goes from Vieste to the beach of Vignanotica, or towards Peschici.
The more experienced, on the other hand, can also explore the Forest beyond the refreshment point, continuing north towards Vico del Gargano, or south towards Monte Sant'Angelo.


You can find numerous examples of itineraries to visit the Gargano by mountain bike or with trekking equipment with this mini guide: PDF MOUNTAIN BIKE AND TREKKING ITINERARIES or in the brochure produced by the province of Foggia sul Cycle tourism on the Gargano and Daunia

Exploring the Gargano by mountain bike can be a fantastic experience if you are curious.
The territory has some unique peculiarities, to be savored slowly, perhaps by bike enjoying the landscape between trebuchets, rocky ridges, Mediterranean scrub, olive trees, woods and breathtaking panoramas. What are you waiting for?
