RIDE RICCIONE

16th June 2019

The Granfondo Riccione becomes Ride Riccione in 2019, in its 20th edition, to launch itself on to the international stage, reviewing the entire itinerary and participatory spirit.
Three routes: 35 km, 105 km and 140 km. Fun, fascinating and exciting, that bring amateurs through the hills of the hinterland of Riccione:
The Short gourmet route is open to any kind of bicycle and for good food lovers: an effervescent ride with panoramic and tasty refreshments discovering the gourmet side of Romagna.
The Medium: a charming route between the sea and the hills, retracing the speed hill climbing of the Riccione San Marino stage of the Giro d'Italia 2019.
The Long ride: on the tracks of the Pirate Marco Pantani, an extraordinary route with three speed hill climbing sections that will bring sporting amateurs to climb the Cippo, the famous climb which the Pirate used to prepare his successes and the most attractive tour that you can do. A photo at the top of Cippo is a must!

The Granfondo takes place within the Ride Riccione Week, an international cycling event that takes place over several days. Its goal is to offer everyone, the opportunity to visit and get to know our territory from the saddle of their bikes.
The pleasure not only of keeping fit, but of living an original and new experience, visiting our beautiful region with villages full of charm, history, culture and food and wine excellences.
This is the mood with which the 1st edition of RRW - Ride Riccione Week - takes shape.

June 14th | Breeze of challenge
Ride Criterium Riccione
They are called "fixed”. They are the bikes with the fixed relationship. No free wheel. The drive wheel is connected directly to the wheel hub via the chain and each movement of one part corresponds to the movement of the other based on the set ratio. No brakes. Along a fascinating circuit in the center of Riccione, bales of hay coming out of corners because here we start at full speed and end up even stronger and if you bend too much there is the risk of touching the ground with the pedal.

This is also the reason for the success of these races, also thanks to the short circuit that allows a continuous passage of the riders in front of the public.

Passion on two wheels
