Calabrian park’s cycle network can be travelled in both directions, starting from Laino Borgo or Reggio Calabria. If you want to get here by train, we inform you that since October 2020 passengers have been able to travel on the Rome-Reggio Calabria Intercity trains with an assembled bike on board with them. These trains travel along the Tyrrhenian coast and stop at the main stations of the region, which are 40 km from the cycle network, on average. You can also reach the cycle network using the Jonica line of the national railways, the Taranto-Reggio Calabria, since Trenitalia has announced that from the summer of 2021 passengers will be able to travel with a bike on all Intercity trains. From the Sibari station, you can head inland taking the regional trains to Cosenza (travelling on holidays too). The stations of S. Marco-Roggiano and Torano-Tallarico are respectively 7.6 km and 11.4 km from Tarsia and Bisignano.
If you want to travel by air, you can use the airports of Lamezia Terme (domestic and international flights), Reggio Calabria (domestic flights from Milan Linate and Rome Fiumicino with Alitalia) and Crotone (domestic flights from Bologna and Bergamo with Ryanair). At Lamezia Terme airport you’ll find all the areas for packing and unpacking your bicycle and taxi services to reach the cycle route with bikes in tow.
By car you can reach various towns crossed by the cycle network or arrive very close to them, both one the Tyrrhenian and the Ionian coasts. From the west, take the Salerno-Reggio Calabria (E45), which runs along the Tyrrhenian coast heading inland in the territories of the Pollino National Park and the Serre Regional Park; from the east, take the state road SS106 Taranto-Reggio Calabria (E90), which travels along the Ionian coast and connects all the panoramic roads that cross Calabria from coast to coast.
One more way to get to the cycle network and take your bike with you is Flixbus, which connects the main Italian cities with the towns crossed by the cycle network, including Mormanno, Firmo, Tarsia, Bisignano, Acri, in the north, and Reggio Calabria, in the south.
