Route for the racing bike starting in Pietra Ligure. You first follow the coastal road to Borgio Verezzi, and then start the climb to the picturesque town of Verezzi at 275 meters, go down to Gorre at 213 meters and then climb continuously to the Colle di Melogno at 1028 meters. There is a fort here and a restaurant, but not much of a view. On the way to the top there are nice views of hill towns like Magliolo. From the Colle di Melogno you descend to Calizzano at 650 meters. Here, the road slowly ascends to the Giogo di Toirano at 807 meter via the town of Bardineto. Then, the road descends via a series of hairpin bends and with nice views towards Toirano and the coast at Borghetto Santo Spirito. Here, you can follow the coast via Loano back to Pietra Ligure. In Borghetto and Loano the route avoids the main thoroughfare the Via Aurelia as much as possible. In Borghetto, on the small road between the rail road and the beach, there are a lot of pedestrians, so be careful.
