Sweet Spot Cycling has partnered with Tourissimo to present to you Cycling Emilia Romagna. It’s the opportunity to cycle in an Italian region renowned for its history, art, traditions, food and wine, and fascinating itineraries between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine Mountains.

We will ride ancient routes between fortresses, castles and abbeys leading through valleys, open plains and ancient forests.  And of course, at the end of the rides we get to enjoy the magnificent Adriatic coastline and the lively Italian atmosphere. Joining Sweet Spot Cycling’s staff on this social vacation is a unique chance to improve your cycling skills and fitness and to discover the traditions of this underrated region which is a true cyclist’s paradise.  There are multiple paces offered each day!
