Surrounded by a cloud we rediscover the mystery and the imposing force of nature, transmitted by the peak of Mount Sibilla. To guide us with the imagination up to high altitude is the trail, the same that leads us to narrate the fairy Sibilla and the Guerin Meschino.
That of the "Guerin Meschino", legendary Knight errant, is the story of a child named Guerino who, still in swaddling, was kidnapped and sold to a merchant of Constantinople. Growing up, Guerino became a skilled knight. He led and won many battles but the notoriety did not make him happy. His deepest wish always remained to know his true homeland, his parents, his real name. And so it was that at twenty he began a long wandering in search of his true identity. When it seemed that all hopes were lost , a magician told him about a fairy who lived in a magical kingdom in the mountains of central Italy, the fairy Sibilla. The Meschino lost no time and, after a confused journey, climbed to the summit of Mount Sibilla. He reached a cave and here he met the fairy Sisyla who would have to unravel the mystery that tormented him so much.
Going up and down on the Sibil is not easy, especially riding a MTB.
So we just have to thank those who did. With their stories and we can retrace with imagination those trails and relive the emotions experienced.
After a very long winter that never seemed to end, the weather finally announces two days of stable time. The appointment is set for 7.00. Just the time to warm the legs along the 4 km that separates Rubbiano and immediately we take the long forest that rises up above the crest of the Sibilla.
We are going through one of the most evocative traits of the whole group of Sibillini. A road that man has laboriously taken away from the steep slopes of the mountain, marking the side of the Sibilla, queen of the Sibillini, the mountain that gave name to the entire mountain range.
As we take altitude the horizons widen and the views are more beautiful.
