Biking Tour in Sicily
This biking tour in Sicily is 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. It is ideal for trekking bikes and gravel bikes, but a road bike will do, too, if you skip the hot springs or push for that bit.
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.
Best Time to Go
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.
