    Biking near Rome/Venice

    I'm a student about to study abroad next year and Italy and was wondering if there's much riding near Rome or Venice. I'd hope to travel north to the Alps, but if I cannot, is there any riding near these two cities? Thanks for any info.

    I was working in Venice last summer.
    Its flat but about 45 km north you find the Montello hill.
    Best to ride a road bike if you want to go from Venice or Mestre. Met up with some local riders on most Sundays for a 130 km round trip. Very fast on the flat and the hill is steep when you hit it.
    Plenty of mountain bikes around Montello.
    And they have a world cup marathon race.

    Watch out for the traffic !!!!

    Ciao
    As TonyCannon states, in about 45 km from Venice there is the Montello hill but .... at 60 km there's lot more :-)
    Where I live there are a lot of trails for all kind of riding (from XC to DH) with beautiful land (it's where the alps starts). There's a forum of north east mtb fans (www.freeridemtbnordest.com) and venetian bikers too!
    Feel free to contact me if you want more info
    ciao
