On May 11 and 12 2024, a cycling event for 'gourmands', gourmets, is back, along Collecchio, Felino, Sala Baganza, and Traversetolo, which aims to let its participants have a unifying experience capable of involving all the senses.
Gravel Gourmet is concentrated in small towns in the province of Parma immersed in the architectural, historical and gastronomic excellences of this area.
Participants can choose between different routes, delighted by the refreshments - which we have renamed snacks at GG - along the route where producers, chefs, and tourist offices will compete to express the best of traditional recipes prepared with local products.
This part of Emilia is strongly influenced by the Po plain but already allows you to breathe the Apennines. The nature of these gentle hills and the rivers of the valleys are dotted with castles and villages whose beauty is accentuated by their authenticity and hospitality.
You will be delighted with the most appreciated PGI and PDO products in the world such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Parma Ham as well as cured meats but without forgetting, of course, that the strong point of gastronomy in Emilia is fresh pasta, especially stuffed pasta.
