Monte Carpegna aka Monte Chippo starts at a right turn in the village and you immediatly hit a sign for 20 % and this more or less defines the climb, which we thought was about 9kms. At times it was difficult to keep the front wheel on the ground, at least most of the ride is through trees, so that you are in the shade. About 2/3 rds up we came to a gate, but you can dismount and walk around this. The road surface was excellent.
