CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Locri

Ride 22 kilometers gaining 1,026 meters at 4.2% average grade (6.7% climb only)

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Bruce Hamilton.

This climb starts in the seaside town of Locri and climbs up into the Parco Dell’Aspromonte National Park. About 10 kilometers in we rode through the old village of Gerace. It’s a 1000 year old walled village on a 500 meter tall rock outcropping and it’s definitely worth the side trip into the village. There are great views of the seaside area from within the town and there is are remains of a castle built about 1000 years ago and destroyed by an earthquake in the 1700s. Narrow brick streets and cliffside views make this a worthwhile extra and it’s only about 1 km to climb up to the town.

The road is open with views to the sea for most of the climb and the last few kilometers are in the forest. The top is inside the national park and is at the ridge that runs down the center of the peninsula that is the ‘boot toe’ of southern Italy. Descending down the other side will take you to the north coast and it’s easy to combine this ride with climbs up from the other side. We rode the Trepito climb on the same ride and the two climbs connected via a road that runs about 10 km along the ridge.

This is among many climbs in the region that climb up to a ridge that runs down the center of the ‘boot toe’ of southern Italy and it’s possible to do multiple climbs in a single ride. It would not be difficult to ride over and back from one coast to the other. We rode the Locri climb from Locri on the same ride in which we climbed Trepito as the two roads connected along the ridge.

Thank you Stacy and Bruce!!
