Itinerary bike route L3
Go from the Eni gas station in the direction of Partinico and Alcamo (SP17). At the end of the road go left in the direction of Partinico (SS113). Turn right at the roundabout (SS186) in the direction of Partinico. Take the first exit on your right and at the end of this exit turn left in the direction of San Cipirello and Corleone (SP2). After having passed Lago Poma, turn right in the direction of Camporeale. A few hundred meters after having crossed the bridge, the first real climb of this route begins. At the fork in the road (at 400 meters) turn left in the direction of Camporeale and Alcamo. At the end of this road turn left in the direction of Camporeale. Here, the second climb of the route begins.
When you reach the roundabout, you can either go straight ahead (this option is shown on the maps) or you can go left. The last option is less steep (straight ahead means a descent of around 23°!) and you’ll end up at the same point, which is Via Calvario – Via L. Caruso – Via Roma – Corso Umberto I, all parts of the same long street, which passes through the town of Camporeale. At the end of the descent turn left (sharp turn!) in the direction of Palermo and San Cipirello. Go straight ahead and follow the Via Principe di Camporeale, which leads you out of Camporeale. Follow the road (Contrada Signorino – Contrada Serpe) until you see a large tree in the middle of a fork in the road. Turn left here (SP20), in the direction of San Cipirello.
Close to San Cipirello, at another fork in the road, turn right in the direction of this town. Here begins a short climb (5-6%). When you reach San Cipirello, turn left on the Viale Enrico Berlinguer (SP2). You need to follow this road all the way back to Partinico (again passing Lago Poma). When in Partinico, go underneath the SS186 and immediately turn right in the direction of Palermo and Trapani. This will lead you to the roundabout, where you need to go left in the direction of Balestrate (SS113). Follow this road and turn right at the exit for Balestrate. Follow this road, the SP17, until you see the Eni gas station on your right.
