Official Nove Colli Tour Operator
We are pleased to announce that we are an official Tour Operator for longest running Gran Fondo in Italy – that being The Nove Colli.
The Nove Colli will be 50 years old in 2021 and is often referred as the Queen of the Gran Fondo’s and where Gran Fondo’s were born. It’s an event that will put you to the test whichever distance you choose 205km or 130km. The name Nove Colli translates to 9 climbs which you would take on if you select the long distance otherwise it’s 4 climbs for the short distance. The event started in 1971 with just 17 riders , who would have thought back then the event would be such an international gathering of cyclists and having 12,000 riders. The event is so famous the 2020 Giro visited the Cesenatico Romagna region and covered a number of the climbs to celebrate the 50 years.
