Mountain Bike Tour of the Mercadante Forest

The itinerary starts at the train station of Pesacriello  (where our second altamurgia bike rental is) to the Mercadante forest, the green lung of Bari, rich in water all year long, a miracle for the thirsty land of the Murgia.
The forest presents the typical hilly morphology of the murgia areas, with a steep scarp. There are Aleppo pines, cypresses, holly oaks and oaks.
The path is half dirt road and half paved without any particular technical  difficulty.
The steppe landscape is rich in charming colors, raw white rocks sculpted by the water and the wind on the bright green of the grazing lands.
After the bike ride, before going back, we’ll taste the local food and wine in an antique murgia manor farm.
