From urban cycle routes for families and amateurs to more demanding routes for better trained cyclists.
Did you know that this is the Italian region with the greatest number of cycling paths? Throughout the whole region there is a total of 8,000 kilometres for enthusiasts, among road routes and unpaved tracks, 2,000 of which in the Wellness Valley. That's why riding a bike in Romagna is nice, easy and fun.
From urban cycle routes for families and amateurs to more demanding routes for better trained cyclists. Just get on your bike and start pedalling! There are lots of itineraries you can choose from, among those that are immersed in the natural beauty of the territory or those passing through medieval hamlets on the hinterland hills, or the cycle tracks by the sea, or the unpaved countryside tracks, perfect for those who are looking for a flush of adrenaline.
And when you need to recharge your batteries, take a tasty break: the local gastronomy offers excellent food and savoury specialties, great for a healthy and balanced diet. Among the great cyclists from Romagna, symbol of its biking vocation typical of this region, is Ercole Baldini, from Forlì, who has entered the worldwide cycling hall of fame thanks to his championship titles: his sports career is illustrated in the Villanova museum of Forlì.
Another internationally renowned biking hero is Marco Pantani, remembered in a multimedia museum in Cesenatico, the heart of the Wellness Valley.
Following closely is Davide Cassani, a professional cyclist and current coach of the Italian national cycling team; his passion for bike riding started in Romagna, the biking tradition’s land of origin.
Every year the Wellness Valley attracts thousands of enthusiasts from all over Europe, thanks also to a high-quality specialized hotel offer with the Bike Hotels that provide dedicated services to cycling tourists, from bike storage to technical assistance, massages and healthy, balanced and energetic menus.
Various hotels in Rimini and Cesenatico provide high-quality bike rentals, while in Riccione there are some dedicated hotels that provide maps of 20 routes with GPS systems and offer a free digital guide in order to save itineraries on the GPS or smartphone, so you can always access them with just a touch.
