1. La ciclovia ha il suo inizio simbolico nel centro storico di Pontremoli, nei pressi del ponte Medievale della Cresa. Da qui si pedala lungo il viale alberato dei Chiosi, il suo ponte, la meravigliosa Villa Barocca Dosi Delfini e si sale sul colle del Piagnaro, dominato dal Castello e dal suo Museo delle Statue stele Lunigianesi. Si ridiscende sino a Piazza del Duomo e Piazza della Repubblica, cuori pulsanti della città e si pedala su selciato sino ad uscire dal borgo da Porta Fiorentina.
2. Successivamente si sfrutta in parte l’itinerario della Via Francigena attraverso il borgo della SS Annunziata per poi entrare nel comune di Filattiera e la Valle del Caprio. Qui le belle villette, gli ulivi e le viti conducono sino al borgo di Ponticello e le sue case – torri medioevali.
3. Sempre sulla Via Francigena si pedala lungo le sponde del Fiume Magra e si raggiunge la Pieve romanica di Sorano per poi tornare nel lungo fiume su un facile sterrato in brecciolino. Si sale poi la Valle del Bagnone lungo Mocrone e Malgrate sino al bel borgo di Bagnone e il suo Castello che si costeggia per poi passare nel comune di Villafranca, con il borgo medievale di Virgoletta.
4. Si raggiunge Villafranca Lunigiana e il suo parco lungo il Fiume Magra. Si attraversa il fiume e ci si ritrova a pedalare nel comune di Mulazzo lungo il percorso natura che con bei sentieri fa risalire la valle sulla sponda destra sino a raggiungere nuovamente Pontremoli. Un percorso di grande soddisfazione e varietà.
