Please read in full and then see the discussion thread for photos and links.

The purpose of the Laduesse is to promote a healthy lifestyle and outdoor activity with beneficial effects for health, as well as enhancing the cultural, historical and naturalistic heritage of the territory crossed (the territories of ancient fiefdom of the San Severino), the one that winds along the Pollino Park over-looking the Tyrrhenian Sea up to the most inland areas, entirely within the province of Cosenza.

In addition, also thanks to the "slow" characteristics of the cycling movement, it aims to enhance the excellences (landscape, food and wine and tourism) of the areas crossed, urge respect for the environment and nature with responsible behaviour, and highlight the vocation of the Cosenza area for an Experiential Tourism.

The Laduesse passes through the municipalities of Sangineto, Belvedere Marittimo, Sant'Agata d'Esaro, San Sosti, San Donato di Ninea, Acquaformosa, Lungo, Firmo and Altomonte.

Along the route there will be stops designed to draw participants' attention to places of interest, monuments, squares, historical centres, places of worship, natural beauty, involving local communities and businesses. During Laduesse, participants will also have the opportunity to sample the cuisine and purchase local food and wine products along the tour.
