It's been many years since I rode a bicycle , and if I'm honest, It's never been one of my favourite modes of transport, but I could be tempted to hire a bike in Bergamo, carry it by tram to Albino and pootle along part of the purpose built cycle path - a wicker basket with 'lashings of ginger beer' would be a welcome addition!
The Ciclavia Valle Seriana starts at Ranica, which is on the T1 tramline from Bergamo to Albino and ends 31.20KM later in Clusone, along a purpose built pathway that passes through 14 municipalities. There are two areas where the route hits a road - at Gazzeniga and at Casrigo, but there is little traffic here. Much of the route follows the river bank, with crossings over bridges.
From Vertova to Clusone, the trail follows an old railway route, so is mainly flat, but reaches a steeper gradient at Ponte Nossa and before the Clusone Plateau.
Of course it's possible to do this route on two legs as well as two wheels!
We walked a small portion of the trail at Albino, then at Pradalunga and Ranica. At these three places, there are cafes for refreshments.
