Ciao!

Great plan! Considering the heat in southern Italy in August you should ride by night.

This guys rode from Rome to Salerno (it's the other way round) on fixed gear bikes last summer, maybe they can help you.

You are more than welcome to open the discussion here, it's a cool idea -maybe not the best moment of the year as Bix said but a cool idea nonetheless.

First tip: are you guys on warmshowers.org ? It's a great place to offer/receive hospitality for cyclists.

Second tip: watch your bikes, lock them!

hi,

we rode last year from Rome to Salerno (we rode Rome-Agropoli indeed, about 70km after Salerno). The streets on that part of the  route are quite good, little bit busy between pompei and Napoli (and paved, too) but @lone wolf once told me that the hardest part with the worst roads is in between the areas of Lucania, but I think he can tell you more about that. 

we rode our trip in "audax mode", so little and short stops, but if you intend to do your ride more like a "trip" there's a lot of places that you can visit along the road, beautiful sea and nice spots. I suggest you the nice town of Castellabate, Paestum if you're interested in history, and of course every f*cking places that sell mozzarella di bufala between agropoli and battipaglia.

MrHarp, thanks for the advice.

We wont be really sight seen... besides the beautiful landscape on the way. But would be cool to visit some shops and velodromes on the way!

*Mozzarella di bufala* YES!!!!!!!!

I highly doubt there'll be velodromes in south Italy
