• Granfondo in Emilia Romagna •

Cyclosportives, the so called Italian “Granfondo”, are genuine “festivals of the bike” in which thousands of cyclists participate, from competitive amateurs to experienced cyclists. An opportunity to have fun biking, to share emotions and to discover the area.


Granfondo del Po

Ferrara – 24 March 2019

This is an atypical Granfondo characterised by the total absence of climbs, but demanding as a result of the speed and the wind.
The race takes cyclists through beautiful landscapes along one Italy’s longest cycle paths, between Emilia-Romagna and Veneto. A long ride that allows you to spend a weekend surrounded by art, history and sport, and to discover Ferrara with its medieval streets, its Renaissance palaces and its ancient castle, together with the grandeur and beauty of Italy’s most important river.

Granfondo tra Valli e Delizie, città di Portomaggiore

Portomaggiore (FE) – 31 March 2019

The former “Granfondo Comacchio e le sue Valli”, falls in the group of 6 non-competitive events that make up the “Giro dell’Appennino Bolognese e delle Valli di Comacchio” circuit.
The “Giro dell’Appennino Bolognese e delle Valli di Comacchio” is characterised by “French departures”, allowing cyclists to start off freely within a specific timeframe, riding safely without the dangers of crowding and falls typical of competitive Granfondo starts. That which prevails is the desire to ride surrounded by the beautiful landscapes and the panorama offered throughout the province of Ferrara, along quiet roads, far away from city traffic.
