49th edition of this famous cycling race

Departure from the canal of Cesenatico, arrival at Colonia Agip, viale Carducci

Cesenatico (FC)

Every year thousands of cyclists participate in the classic Gran Fondo, a cycling tourism race. Both professional athletes and cycling enthusiasts, from all over Europe, meet up along the streets of the Romagna Apennines to pedal for 210 kilometers over nine hills with a maximum incline of 18% on the legendary Barbotto.

This racing route, which also has a 130 km alternative version for "lazy" amateur cyclists, is dotted with beautiful landscapes and towns great for training or bicycle outings during the whole year.

As is the tradition, there will be nine food stands along the route, where participants can get back their strength with traditional products, including fresh pasta dishes and gluten free foods.

The "Nove Colli", or nine hills, has also given rise to a series of very interesting events which will enliven this weekend dedicated to cycling, both for those participating in the race as well as for those who have come along just to see it. You can get a little tan and try out some great seafood dishes.

A whole weekend dedicated to bicycling with a packed calendar of events is what makes Gran Fondo so special. Also for the 2019 edition the international participation will be high with 12,000 athletes from over 40 different countries.

Date: the event will be held on May 19, 2019

Event timetable: start at 6.00am from the canal of Cesenatico and the race will finish on the seafront along via Carducci.
