Training & bicycle
How do I train myself?
Many people have asked us how to prepare for this type of event. First of all, we would like to stress that these are not races, so competitive performance is not required. However, training to spend hours in the saddle is necessary. Our advice is to train yourself to cycle at least 100 km a day at a constant and never exasperated pace. If, however, you are interested in all-round preparation, we are planning to create free courses for members of the Lazio Trail, more information will follow.
Which bicycle? Gravel or MTB?
The choice of bicycle is a key point as it will be your adventure companion and trusty steed, the thing you hold most dear. Therefore the bike must be in good working order and in excellent condition. As indicated, in our opinion the route is rideable with a gravel bike with a generous tyre section (at least 40 mm) and ratios to cope with steep climbs, sometimes with uneven ground, but obviously it is up to you to get to know each other and to know which is the bike that comes closest to your riding style and that will make you feel safer and more comfortable.
