Many cyclist’s goal is to begin the season in the best of ways, but often the results are disappointing, mainly because of wrong training programs and of routes not fit for the level of preparation. These kind of problems are not the case at Lungomare Bike Hotel, as we have a training-week studied ad hoc just for you!
Every day there are up to 5 groups, with 5 different routes, that differ for speed and length, that allow everyone to bike in the best of conditions and have the best training effect. Our expert guides will ride with you during the training; they will help you handle the tour in the best way, in complete safety. There is place for every level: for the less trained the planned tour will bring you to admire the beauty of our region without pedalling for too long; while for the most prepared cyclists you will cover distances reaching 130kms with 2000m ascent. Romagna, famous for it sea and fish, will roll you through its hills where oil and wine are undisputed masters, and it will amaze you with its breathtaking summits as high as 1500m. Cheered by the tasty food you will enjoy sitting at the generous table of an agriturismo, you will be able to replenish your soul and your muscles from the sports effort. The fast descents will bring you back to the seaside, and the fatigues will disappear in the wellness centre of the Hotel.
