Adriatic Coast Cycling Routes, Italy


The Adriatic Coast is the birth place of Marco Pantani and with the short sharp, steep climbs that litter the area you can understand why he was such a good climber! 

San Leo Loop via San Marino -  This 110km route climbs nearly 1900m and takes in some of the highlights of the area. It begins from Riccione by taking the 2019 Giro D'Italia Individual time trail route out of the town to San Marino, which is the first major climb of the day and at 10km long one of the longest climbs in the area. We highyl recoemnd a stop in the old town of San Marino for a coffee. A big descent follows and then two 6km climbs in succession, that will sap your energy. San Leo is a great place for lunch and has a choice of restaurants in this beautiful old town. From here it is mostly downhill, excpet for the small 4km climb to Verucchio. Take care when you join the SS72 for a few km's, it is busy, but has a good wide hard shoulder. You will return to Ricione via the back roads.
