The Ridge of Peloritani Mountains is an old military road about 70 km long that connects Portella San Rizzo and Portella Mandrazzi. It winds along a scenic and picturesque high-level route overlooking the Tyrrhenian and the Ionian seas.
Mtb Sicily proposes an interesting but rather challenging trail: starting from the village of Paradiso we ride uphill towards the San Rizzo hills until we get to Dinnamare. About 700 meters away from the summit, we turn left and take the ridge. We will ride on dirt patch for about 13 km, with exciting ups and downs and lovely views surrounded by pristine nature. We will pass by Pizzo Bottino, Pizzo Cavallo up to the House of Alpine trooper: from there, we continue towards the fantastic descent of the “Santissima” for about 7 km until we get to the enchanting village of Fiumedinisi. The village is popular for a festival that is held in autumn and for the Belvedere Castle, which is located on the top of the homonymous mountain at 743 mt. above sea level overlooking the whole valley.
We have the opportunity to have lunch at one of the typical local “trattoria” and return to the starting point by using the transfer.
