It is a ring that offers the possibility of being lengthened or modified simply by varying the starting point. The one proposed is a route of medium length and difficulty, which can be traveled in almost all seasons, with the exception of moments of heavy rain, because it could become excessively muddy. It is part of the cycling route of the Orvieto Wine Marathon 2021, the MTB gran fondo.
Recommended starting point Morrano, crossroads of Morrano Vecchio.
It develops almost entirely on paths, for a short distance along an asphalted road, having to avoid private properties.
The characterizing element is the Elmo forest (along a part of the Elmo ring), a Site of Community Importance which is part of the larger area, together with Monte Peglia, which has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
