Bike tourism: mountain bike rental points available in the Park's visitor centers
The bike tourism service in the Gran Sasso Laga National Park has been entrusted in summertime to the Park's visitor centers, that have been provided with the mountain bikes and the related equipment, in order to enable visitors and tourists to rent them.
The Park authority managed to guarantee this increasingly sought-after tourist service - after the natural expiry date of the contract with the Papin Sport enterprise, which managed the service in the last three years - after having won the public notice linked with a project financed by the Ministry of Environment. Just at the end of such a project, the Park has obtained the opportunity to acquire the ownership - which is a unique case in Italy - of 200 bikes of different types, for adults, young people and children, with the related equipment for the transport of objects, as well as bicycle stands, gazebos and safety helmets.
