What is the Nove Colli Sportive?
It was 20th May 1971 at 5 am and just 17 pioneers took on an adventure. The start? It was at the historic location of Bar del Corso, the ancient base of the association. That is where the story begins for the Nove Colli (9 climbs). The event I believe is the longest running Gan Fondo in Italy and it’s 52nd edition in May 2023. The event start and finishes in Marco Pantani’s home town of Cesenatico. The event offers two distances for riders 130km – 4 climbs and and 205km all 9 climbs. Full details of both routes can be found below under “Route Details.”
The Nove Colli sportive (nine hills) is the most popular sportive in Italy with the locals supporting riders all along the route cheering you on. The event is run on closed giving you the chance to fully enjoy yourself and take in the surroundings without having to worry about a car coming around the corner!

The participant must supply us with a medical certificate that covers the event date along with a British Cycling Licence (Bronze) for CYCLING (NO Triathlon, no athletics or other disciplines). Although you would have sent us copies in advance , you must still bring those documents with you. If you do not have a licence then you can pay on the day € 10 – personally I always have a British Cycling Licence – Bronze.
Once you have booked we will email you a medical form to complete
