Description

Lodi, the town of Barbarossa, is surprisingly close to Milano but you might not know or ever thought to reach it by bike for a nice trip out of city. This itinerary gives you the chance to do so and you will certainly be amazed by how beautiful nature can be even close to a city like Milano.
The route starts on the Martesana cycle path, the canal which connects Milano to the river Adda, until Cassano where this waterway turns towards other directions. From this point on, and for a long stretch, the Muzza canal will surprise you. The Muzza is a flourishing canal which draws water from the Adda river and since the Middle Ages has allowed the agriculture and zootechnical development of the Lower Po Valley. The city of Lodi will welcome you with important monuments that overlook the beautiful square. Different sceneries await you on your way back, enriched by the beautiful abbeys Viboldone and Chiaravalle. This is an interesting bike tour for an escapefrom the city.
