- What qualities should a good guide have? To know the language; always a smile and kindness, make the cyclists feel comfortable, create a tightly knot group. What do you think of Riccione Bike Hotels? A very convincing group. Great organisation and good customer service. What do Riccione cyclists love? There are many groups. The landscape is of interest to those who want to go for excursions, but there are groups who primarily want to practice and the territory offer several suitable terrains. What is your style as a cycling guide? Do you enjoy “setting the pace” or do you adjust the pace to suit the skill level of the other tourists who are enjoying the Romagna region and its landscape? I like to keep the pace up, because I don’t enjoy going slowly. I have my rhythm, I carry on with a regular pace and I like it. Would you like to tell us of a day out / a track (in Romagna) which you particularly enjoyed (which are different from the ones we already offer)? The Cippo and the Borbotto are the best for who is fit. Then you have the Val di Telio and the Monte d’Altavelio which are suited to those who are less prepared. In your opinion, who are the most prepared cyclists? And the nicest? At an amateur level, nearly all age brackets go slowly. At a completion level you get those who are very well prepared and chew up the kilometres. Is there an anecdote or a story of an excursion with guests you would like to share? During my years as a guide I’ve met many nice people and I’ve been through many funny and special moments.
