In its 6th edition in 2021, this classically Italian Gran Fondo was named after Vincenzo Nibali, aka ‘The Shark’ and will take you from Gabicce Monte (named the City of Cycling) with breath-taking views of the Adriatic Riviera of Romagna and Marche and the Natural Park of Monte San Bartolo.
This event has a field of circa 3000 riders and is one of Italys top 5 hidden secret gems of a Gran Fondo , which I have have personally ridden. It has a great feeling about it and with two distances there’s something for everybody and both challenging.
Our Hotel is 500 meters from the sign on and event start , with a fantastic Expo at the sign on. Our hotel has a swimming pool and is 100 meters from the beach and 100 meters from numbers shops , bars , coffee shops and restaurants , a location to keep you occupied on and off the bike.
Hotel Senior is a great three star family run hotel which I am a personal friend and can honestly say they definitely look after their customers.
