Bike Route in Sicily
Most of the route is on secondary roads, some sections are along the main road SS115 with variable car traffic depending on the season (expect more traffic in the summer).
Touring or trekking bikes as well as e-bikes recommended.
Siracusa and its historic centre Ortigia
The Baroque city of Noto
The picturesque fishing village Marzamemi
Portopalo di Capopassero – the southernmost tip of Sicily
The coastal town Pozzallo with its endless sandy beaches
The Valley of the Temples near Agrigento

Mazara del Vallo with its medina-like centre
The salt pans near Marsala and Trapani
Railway station in Trapani and Siracusa or halfway in Agrigento. You can easily reach Trapani or Agrigento from Palermo and Siracusa from Catania. There are several trains during the day and in the evening and bicycles are allowed on all regional trains (not on Intercity trains etc.) at an extra cost (currently 3,50 euro for the whole day). 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 have limited space for bikes and book a private bike shuttle instead. Get in touch if you wish to book a bike shuttle.
Terrain: This route is almost completely on asphalt roads with a few short unpaved sections that can be avoided if you travel with a road bike.
Difficulty level: easy to moderate
Bike: best for touring and trekking bikes and e-bikes, if you don’t mind the occasional detour from the main track road bikes are suitable as well. Rent a bike for your tour along the SIBIT bike route.
