Just outside the walls of the medieval town of Venzone, the Alpe Adria Radweg cycle route continues with two options. The official route reaches Gemona directly while the second option runs along the right bank of the Tagliamento river.

Those who choose the official track will pedal for some stretches on the site of the old Pontebbana railway, recently converted into an asphalt cycle path. After passing the Rivoli Bianchi viaduct, cross the new railway line and reach the outskirts of Ospedaletto where you climb along a dirt road (watch out for the gravel!) To the interesting naturalistic area of ​​the Minisini lake. From here we descend towards the lower part of Gemona, a town with almost two millennia of history, built on top of a hill protected by the highest mountain walls. Absolutely recommended the detour to climb towards the historical center of Gemona: you can stroll through the characteristic medieval streets and visit the cathedral and the castle.



Resuming pedaling on the official route of the Ciclovia, after a few kilometers you reach the bank of the Tagliamento again near the Braulins bridge. From Gemona, the CAAR route overlaps the “Pedemontano” cycle path (FVG-3), which starts in Gorizia and reaches the Veneto always running at the foot of the Prealps. At this point the two tracks separate again: while the FVG-3 takes the Braulins bridge and continues on the opposite bank of the Tagliamento, the Alpe Adria Radweg cycle route heads southwards, soon reaching the town of Osoppo thanks to some secondary roads and to some stretches of cycle path nearing completion.

The town of Osoppo rises at the foot of a hill with particular environmental characteristics and of considerable historical interest. Once past the town, continue towards the Parco del Tagliamento, pedaling along wide white roads that cross beautiful stable meadows, where it is easy to observe numerous species of wild orchids, and which are often surrounded by hedges and woods. A little further on the Ciclovia enters the area of ​​the Bars resurgences, recognizable by the thicker woods and the presence of some rivulets with crystalline water, and then continues in the midst of extensive meadows that allow the view of the wide Osoppo plain, surrounded by mountains and hills.

After passing some villages, almost always pedaling on low-traffic roads and on cycle paths, you arrive in Buja: a historic hilly center, famous among others for having given birth to some of the best engravers of the State Mint. To remember them, the Medal Museum was built on the panoramic mountain that surmounts the villages that make up the municipality of Buja. For mountain bike lovers, from Buja it is possible to reach Udine following the nature trail of the Valle del Cormor.

Proceeding along the recent tabulated route, the morainic hills meet just beyond Buja: three circles of heights formed by the gradual melting of the Tagliamento glaciers some tens of thousands of years ago. This is rightly considered one of the most beautiful areas of Friuli: the gentle hills are often covered with woods and you frequently encounter characteristic rural villages, churches, historic manor villas and ancient manors. The cyclists in this part will have to face again some climb but the beauty of the places will help to face the efforts.

Almost always running on paved and low-traffic roads you cross the municipalities of Treppo Grande, Cassacco and Tricesimo up to Tavagnacco where the morainic hills slope down towards the plain. Cycling downhill on the bike path that descends towards Tavagnacco, it is possible to admire the city of Udine and the surrounding plain from a raised position. Continuing mainly on cycle paths, you will soon reach the Parco del Cormor, from which a series of cycle paths will lead you through the outskirts of the Friulian capital to the historic center. Do not miss a visit to Udine: discovering the remarkable buildings built by the Serenissima Republic, the hill surmounted by the city castle and many other buildings of considerable historical interest as well as, obviously, the Tiepolo Gallery.
