|Elevation gain 1750mt|
An itinerary for well-trained cyclists, covering a distance of 100 km and with a 1750-metre change in height.
You visit lots of villages beginning with “Monte”: Montescudo, Montegrimano and Montefiore, all splendid mediaeval towns perched on rocky spurs.
You start from Riccione, continuing towards Ospedaletto, where you begin the first serious climb of the day: 2 km, with an average gradient of 10%. You descend to Fratte to begin the second ascent of 3 km, also at 10%. Once you get to Sasso Feltrio, the road climbs more gently for another 4 km as far as Montelicciano. A 14-km descent will take you to Mercatino Conca, from where you start the last climb towards Monte Altavelio; 4 km with an average gradient of 7% and some stretches at 10% and 13%. Once you’ve descended through San Giovanni Auditore and passed Tavoleto after 70 km, the return to Riccione will be easy going.
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.
