Ride the Adriatic Coast

Saturday 27/04/2019 - Tuesday 30/04/2019


Amamzing Views | Steep climbs | Great weather | Ride the same roads as Pantani | Ride the same roads as the Nove Coli

 

Join us on the Adriatic Coast for 4 days of fully supported riding on empty roads in the sunshine. The Adriatic coast is located on the southern tip of the Po Valley with the hills of Romagna within easy reach.  Although the hills located parallel to the coast, don't go above 800m, they are often steep and very frequent! The area is famous for it's legendary Gran Fondo the Nove Colli which showcases this beautiful area brilliantly.

Group Size

The group will be a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 people. We feel that this size of group works best as there will always be enough in the group for some good company but there won’t be so many people that it becomes overcrowded.

All your breakfasts, lunches and dinners are included in the price of the trip.

Evening meals are provided at your accommodation or in a nearby restaurant. We also supply fruit, biscuits, cake, nuts etc in the support vehicle that you are welcome to have throughout the day as well as sports nutrition if required. Water will be in the support vehicle but any other drinks will have to be purchased in resort.

Itinerary

Saturday 27th April - Day 1: Arrive to Riccione

*Distance: 75km *Elevation: 1100m

After arriving at Bologna airport, you will be met by one of our guides in the arrivals hall. The hotel is just a short 1.5 hour transfer away.  At the hotel your bike will be built for you and there will be a couple of hours for a nice Lunch, time to settle in, fettle your bike, and then we will warm the legs up by taking a ride down the coast to dip your toes in the ocean.

Sunday 28th April - Day 2: The Nove Coli Route 

*Distance: 130km *Elevation: 1871m

Today we take on the legendary route of the Novi Coli. The Novi Coli was the first ever Sportive, and translated means 9 hills. You can either take on the 205km route with 3840m of climbing or the shorter but equally as fun, 130km, 1871m route.

Monday 29th April - Day 3: San Marino and San Leo

*Distance: 110km *Elevation: 1856m

Today’s ride is great. We get to really explore the tiny country lanes of this area, and there is ample opportunity for coffee stops in the many walled towns and villages that you pass. You will also ride the route of the 2019 Giro d'Italia TT course on your way to San Marino.

Tuesday 30th April - Day 4: Departure

There is just time for one more ride in the sun before we transfer you back to the airport.
