Cycling has never been so enjoyable. This itinerary through the valleys of the Marche starts from Cattolica and heads towards Gabicce Mare. From here, you climb to Gabicce Monte, where you join the Panoramic route, which takes you quickly to Pesaro and Fano, cycling amongst trees and flowers and enjoying some beautiful views.

The Panoramic route consists of a succession of ups and downs, bends and double bends, with natural terraces perched high above the sea. You’ll need to push hard on the pedals, the less fit should use a 39×23 configuration.

At Fano, you continue towards Santa Maria Arzilla, where there’s a short ascent; follow directions for S. Veneranda and Montellabate. Continue through the trading estate as far as Osteria Nuova, and then towards Montecchio. The road will now tend to climb slightly until Tavullia; but it’s all easy riding. Once you leave the village, you’ll get to San Giovanni in Marignano in no time, and then to Cattolica.

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.
