The bike path is part of a larger project called Bike to Coast which respects the sustainability of the environment, as well as both developing tourism and local economy.   The path runs from the bank of the river Vomano, to the bridge on river Tordino.   It runs parallel to the beach along the coastline, and crosses the Borsacchio Natural reserve, where you can immerse yourself into a surrounding of typical Mediterranean vegetation.




Full description

The construction of the bike path in Roseto degli Abruzzi is part of a more significant and ambitious project called Corridoio Verde Adriatico (green corridor of the Adriatic), which aims to improve residents' sustainable mobility and promote tourism along the Adriatic coastline.

This ambitious project consists of about 45 km of bike path. It was inaugurated in 2013 to connect, under the aegis of cycle tourism, the entire Abruzzo coast. More specifically, in the province of Teramo, the project will secure the connection between Silvi and Martinsicuro, making it possible to "cycle’’ along the entire coastline of the province of Teramo.

This project's advantages are enormous, from environmental sustainability to promoting tourism and economic development in these areas.

The bike path in Roseto is a portion of this bigger project. The bike path runs along the Vomano riverbanks to the bridge over the Tordino river in Cologna Spiaggia, from where you can continue your ride to reach the vibrant city of Giulianova.

Before starting our bike ride, it is worth noticing the first peculiarity of this section of the bike lane. Between Roseto degli Abruzzi and Pineto, the green corridor is interrupted at the moment.

The bike path then continues along the beach, next to the promenade. Information boards indicating the itinerary are easily identifiable along the trail, as well as horizontal panels to help find your bearing. It is a leisurely bike ride on concrete, tarmac, and wood; it is a succession of breathtaking rides along landscapes flat and gentle slopes along the coastline.

It’s the ideal path for bike tourists and potentially also for commuters; it was designed to merge rural roads, disused railways, and portions of pedestrian paths made for cycling.

After a small but demanding hill, the ride turns inland, running along the Adriatic railway, next to the Roseto camping sites.

Finally, the bike lane runs toward Cologna crossing the natural reserve of Borsacchio, surrounded by vegetation, wild bushes, olive trees, and some marvelous farmhouses.
