Bike Route in Sicily

A panoramic ride through the hills, vineyards and hot springs around Segesta and Alcamo starting from the picturesque coastal town of Castellammare del Golfo near the Zingaro Nature Reserve. Ideal for touring bikes and e-bikes.
Enjoy a ride across the hilly countryside of Calatafimi and through the vineyards around Alcamo, stop for a bath at the hot springs of Segesta and finish off the day with a gelato in the picturesque pedestrian city centre of Castellammare del Golfo before you return to your lovely room at the Helios B&B. This route has several climbs, but all are on asphalt roads so you shouldn’t worry too much. This route is accessible all year round, but expect some mud around the hot springs near Segesta when it rains (usually, between November and February). On clear days, you can enjoy wonderful sea views from Alcamo. Highlights: Segestan thermal baths and the limestone canyon created by the Fiume Caldo Alcamo and its lovely centre including the Castello dei Conti di Modica, the panoramic belvedere with views that stretch out to the sea and the ruins of the Annunziata Church The picturesque centre of Castellammare del Golfo Suitable for cyclists with a good level of fitness.

Check the train timetable on www.trenitalia.com Please note: if you travel solo or as a couple, you will hardly ever have problems in finding a place for your bikes on the train, but if you are a group of cyclists please bear in mind that most trains only carry two bikes and book a private bike shuttle instead. Get in touch if you wish to book a bike shuttle. Terrain: Apart from the short track around the hot springs which is unpaved, you’ll ride on asphalt all the time.
