The itinerary begins in the centre of Santarcangelo. Leaving Piazza Ganganelli behind, it heads towards the stadium. At the first roundabout it continues straight on, at the second roundabout it turns left and at the third it turn rights and continues as far as the dirt track on the right. The off-road itinerary begins just beyond the gate. The track runs along the riverbank and heads towards the hills, keeping to the left of the Marecchia River. It follows the main earth and stone track, which alternates between flat and hilly stretches, as far as Ponte Verucchio. The itinerary offers interesting geological and aquatic birdlife aspects. Beyond Ponte Verucchio it is possible to visit Verucchio, Torriana and Montebello Fortresses as well as the peaks of Madonna di Siano. From Ponte Verucchio, return to the cycle path on the right bank (south) of the Marecchia River as far as the bridge on Via Santarcangelo/S. Martino dei Mulini and return to the departure point.
