|Elevation gain 1100mt|
The first part of this itinerary is along the flat as far as Ponte Verrucchio (km 35), passing through Covigano, S. Ermete and Santarcangelo. The road then starts to climb for the 4 km to Verrucchio and then rises steeply to Mount Ventoso. The first 500 metres here are killing, with a gradient of 18%, but eke out your energy because you have to climb for over 10 km.
Once you’re over the brow, the cycling will be easier on the way back to Rimini via Faetano, Ospedaletto and S. Salvatore. This route of average difficulty covers 87 km with a total change of level of 1100 metres. In view of the gradients on Mount Ventoso, we recommend a 39×25 set-up.
We are located in Emilia Romagna, region bordered by Veneto and the beautiful cities of Venice and Padua to the North, and by Tuscany, Umbria and Marche to the South, offering charming cities such as Florence, Perugia, Assisi and Urbino.
We are characterised by a concentration of adrenaline, traditions and typical cuisine, captured in the most beautiful tours that touch sites on the Adriatic coast such as Cesenatico, the land of Pantani, and reach all the way to Ferrara and Ravenna, cities of art and history, passing through rugged ascents such as those of Cippo and Carpegna, or the Cimone in Modena.
