Salento Trail

The Salento Trail is the result of an idea dictated by a passion for «Irregular Roads»; a mixed dirt-asphalt route that will allow you to get to know Salento from a rural, naturalistic, historical-cultural and culinary point of view. Our route has San Cassiano as its starting and finishing point where we can count on the presence of a bike hostel and a cycle workshop.
The track of the event is 350 km and it will be a bikepacking event!

The 4 rules for the operation of the Salento Trail are as follows:
ONE SHOT: The route is a 350km ring that you can manage on your own based on how much and how you want to pedal and enjoy our area. You will have absolute freedom on when and how to pedal, where to sleep and rest or eat.
For those who do not have the time, the desire or the legs to cover the entire itinerary, two further itineraries have been designed (provided at the time of registration):
1.Northern route (160km)
2.Intermediate route (250km)
Which follow the original track, respectively up to Castro (North route) and up to Leuca (intermediate route), to then leave it and take you back to the starting point always along captivating and unedited paths
FOLLOW: We will give you a GPS track to follow and respect. You will be able to abandon the track for necessity or your needs but you will have to start it again from the same point.
SELF-SUSTEINED: We will not give you any assistance nor will you be able to bring any personal assistance. It will be you and your bike.
NO TIME: You will not have a time limit, you decide your pace and your times. Do you want to run…run, do you want to rest…rest, the important thing is to respect the highway code.
