Starting from the sea with the smell of saltiness and pedaling immersing yourself in the Romagna landscape. Then drive through hairpin bends that climb over rolling hills, cross villages and, finally, admire the beaches and the blue waves of the waves from above. A day full of emotions that starts from the port of Leonardo in Cesenatico - Forlì Cesena - for the 48th edition of Nove Colli. The appointment is May 20, 2018, when lovers of two wheels will compete, choosing between the route of 130 kilometers and that of 200 kilometers, many times beaten by the "pirate" Marco Pantani. A race that also involves many spectators, who can watch the cyclists whizzing through the hills and villages of Romagna. The Ricci Hotels, specialized in services for cyclists and bicycle enthusiasts, make available the bib to attend the Nove Colli directly at the hotel. In addition to being able to take the bicycle to the room - a secure bike room - the participants have an energy breakfast available starting at 4 am, they can hire professional bicycles at the hotel and receive mechanical assistance at the hotel. Every day sportswear is washed free of charge and then, to relax after cycling, here are the pools for relaxing whirlpools. In conjunction with the Nove Colli, the Mini Granfondo will also be held on 20 May, a competition dedicated to children aged 7 to 14: a 5.2-kilometer ride on the Cesenatico promenade, up to the Valverde hamlet and back or 10.2 kilometers to the gates of Sala di Cesenatico. And after Cesenatico, we start to discover villages rich in history such as Longiano
, or Sarsina
, for a dip in the most authentic Italy.
