Distances: 85, 125km
Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

The 2nd edition "Le strade dei vini in gravel" always starts from the beautiful location"Cantina Podere Nona Pietra"which is located near the graves of piave.

We will go up the Piave for a few kilometers along the embankment and then cross it to Ponte della Priula.

The view of collalto with its vineyards and the castle of San Salvatore stronghold of the First World War is breathtaking.

From here on there will be a continuous ups and downs of white roads on the hills of UNESCO-listed prosecco, where you will enjoy the view of the people in harvest and the wagons full of grapes.

A fast descent will take us immediately after Conegliano,where we will go up a tributary stream of the Monticato always on a dirt road.

We will approach gently at the foot of Tarzo and from here on the ride will become more difficult for the presence of short ramps but with double digit percentages.

We will pass the village of Nogarolo, where there will be an opportunity to top up the water bottles with the fresh water of the fountains and down to Lake Revine.

A brief respite will follow to the lake and then we will climb again, until we expect there will be a nice/technical single track.

Leaving the dense vegetation we will find the killer wall of Arfanta,top of the round.

Most of it is done. The Mulinetto della Croda,built in 1963 taking advantage of the waters of the Lierza stream, deserves to be photographed.

The refreshment is approaching! But first we will have to face the "little Pordoi", obviously dirt!

Once in Refrontolo,we will be guests of the Toffoli Winery ready to let us taste our wines.

Later we will return to Ponte della Priula where there will be the division of the 2 routes: the short returns to the cellar, while the long will face some gentle climbs of Montello passing through the monument Francesco Baracca,aviator shot down by enemy fire on June 19, 1918.

From here to the arrival we will be company with the viticulture of prosecco, cabernet, merlot, sauvignon, marzemino, in short.... be careful not to get drunk!

On arrival we will be waiting for sandwiches with bacon and prosecco!!!
