CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Bivio Roghudi

Ride 8.9 kilometers gaining 818 meters at 8.3% average grade (12.9% climb only 😟

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Bruce Hamilton, Midway, Utah.

This climb starts by the abandoned town of Roghudi Vecchio. It’s a ghost town that has been abandoned since 1973 and it’s very remote and quite eerie. Many remarkable videos online – Roghudi Vecchio has an interesting history.

This is a difficult climb to find and it is not one that you can drive to by car. The only way to ride it is to ride your bike to it. Can be accessed by riding the climb from Bova Marina up to Bova and then up and over the hill and down. You’ll come down before you ride up but this is the most direct way to access this road.  This is the way that we arrived and getting there definitely feels remote and there was an ongoing “I know you said we are not lost but it sure feels like we are lost” thread to riding further and further down to get to this ride. An almost eerie feeling being so remote and then the abandoned town just added to the surreal nature of this area.

The climb starts at a very old bridge across the river and heads straight up immediately. Series of uniform tight switchbacks held in place by stone walls created a medieval feel and Roghudi Vecchio is positioned at the hairpin of the first switchback. The road is poor – old concrete and tiles in places, some pavement, and some rocky and dirt sections. Italian drivers go to some crazy places but it feels like it has been a long time since cars have been here. Nice views near the top looking back down. Most notable thing about this ride is how remote it is. Difficult to access but high adventure factor on this one.

Thank you Bruce!!
