IMG-20140608-WA0004When we are at the starting point we put aside the everyday problems and have fun with friends along the trails of our beautiful land Lazio. During our meeting we are always looking to discover new routes and heavily we remind the spirit of team leaving free our way of biking. We are not competitive athletes we like to call ourselves athletes of our limits .
Obviously we do not do nature walks, but of course we ride always with the spirit of the group and it’s nice at the end of the trail all of us together sharing a moment of relax.
We organize activities both in our area Ladispoli and Cerveteri. In 2014, we have created a school bike with masters of the FCI
Joining our group does not cost anything, just get a mountain bike, a helmet and a minimal desire to ride and surely you will find a way to have fun with us.
If you want to know more please contact us by e-mail villagebikeclub@gmail.com and we’ll give you all the information you need. Visit also our site Village Bike Club

Starting from Rome and going in the north direction along Via Aurelia, you will arrive after 40 Km in Cerveteri, where you will find the most famous attraction of this city that is the Necropoli della Banditaccia, which has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site together with the necropoleis in Tarquinia. It covers an area of 400 ha, of which 10 ha can be visited, encompassing a total of 1,000 tombs often housed in characteristic mounds. The necropolis is a city of the dead. It is the largest ancient necropolis in the Mediterranean area.
The most ancient ones are in the shape of a pit, in which the ashes of the dead were housed; also simple potholes are present.
From the Etruscan period are two types of tombs: the mounds and the so-called “dice”, the latter being simple square tombs built in long rows along “roads”.
The mounds are circular structures built in tuff, and the interiors, carved from the living rock, house a reconstruction of the house of the dead, including a corridor, a central hall and several rooms. Modern knowledge of Etruscan daily life is largely dependent on the numerous decorative details and finds from such tombs. The most famous of these mounds is the so-called Tomba dei Rilievi , identified from an inscription as belonging to one Matunas and provided with an exceptional series of frescoes, bas-reliefs and sculptures portraying a large series of contemporary life tools. Etruscan phallic symbols. “Cippi” indicating that tomb occupants were male.
Most finds excavated at Cerveteri necropolis are currently housed in the National Etruscan Museum, Rome. Others are in theArchaeologicalMuseum at Cerveteri itself.

Going away from Rome following the North direction, you will arrive at the medieval Village of Ceri, settled on a tufaceous spur of volcanic origin. Its ancient houses facing the tiny central square, tightened around both the Sanctuary of the Virgin Mary and the austere Palace of the noble family Torlonia. A context of  historic and naturalistic interest forms the background of this charming agricultural settlement.
Its typical sceneries, its precious wines and its traditional cooking are all expressions of the Mediterranean flavours of the Maremma Laziale.
Ceri is to be considered as a starting point for noteworthy itineraries, starting from the castles along the seaside of Palo and Santa Severa, ending up at the fortress of Michelangelo and the harbour of Civitavecchia; from the Etruscan necropolis of Cerveteri to the thermal springs; from the naturalistic oasis of Palo and the mountains of Tolfa to the hot springs of Manziana.
Not so far from the borough, about 3 km, there are the beaches of Palidoro, San Nicola and Ladispoli that facing along the Tyrrhenian sea.
