CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Cristo di Maratea

Ride 11 kilometers gaining  559  meters at 5.1% average grade.

Located in Provincia di Potenza this scenic and fun bike climb begins at the top of the boot of Italy in Porto di Maratea and finishes at Basilica di San Biagio just below the Statua Cristo Redentore (Statue of Christ the Redeemer), the third tallest statue of Jesus in all of Europe and fifth tallest in the world at 21.20 meters (70’).

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador and world traveler Bruce Hamilton.

We started this climb from the port – right down in the plaza by the water. From the start you can see the giant statue at the top. The climb winds through the village and then turns right onto the road specifically up to the church and statue. It’s a beautiful road of switchbacks with commanding views of the ocean and town below. Higher up you start to see the incredible switchbacks that are on trestles winding higher and higher. At the top you have to walk up some steps and then ride a small path to get to the statue. Spectacular all around and close to 2000’ of climbing if you ride from the port plaza.
