“The people of Emilia use the bicycle as a hat, which cannot be abandoned, because it is a part of the person even that it is inopportune. The bike has something of the dog on us, continues company that we takes with even though without get in, to get from the house to the coffee that is twenty meters away.”

Bici Parma Po
The “Bici Parma Po” cross the province of Parma from West to East intersecting many others routes: “Verdi” from the star, “The Small World” and the “Ciclotaro” nearby Gramignazzo and the Street of the Culatello di Zibello.
The landscape is the classic one of the Great River: poplars and meanders alternate with well-equipped staging points and river docks dedicated to tourism, nature areas such as the Woods of Maria Luigia in Torricella di Sissa and the Parma Morta Natural Reserve in Mezzani.
From Colorno with a small detour on the embankment of the Galasso canal, with a mixed bottom (asphalt, gravel, grass) it is possible to reach the Natural Reserve of Torrile and Trecasali.
From Colorno along the bank of Parma stream and of the Po, it is possible to reach Mezzani and then Coenzo, from where it is possible to continue on secondary roads to Sorbolo and Bogolese, just outside Parma.
