The Italians call them Granfondo, the French Cyclosportif, the English, the Belgians and the Dutch Cyclosportives. The name changes but the substance remains the same. Granfondo are long-distance amateur or competitive cycling events.
This type of event has very specific features: a mass start, roads closed to traffic, road assistance (routes signposted, technical support, well-stocked refreshment stations), a stunning finish-line area and a party atmosphere during and after the event. It is open to competitive cyclists but also cycling enthusiasts that just love pedalling!
In fact, Granfondo are not traditional races but genuine “bicycle festivals” in which thousands of cyclists of all levels can participate and enjoy themselves.
Riccione and the surrounding area offer you the chance to take part in many Granfondo and, above all, to enjoy yourselves with us!
